I am using Dual boot Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS edition with dual(tri) boot bewteen Windows XP and Windows 7.

I have 3 local disks .C:\ , E:\ , F:\ .. and one hidden disk ..(see my early question http://www.makeuseof.com/answers/recover-drive-partition-formatted-ubuntu-installer/)

Windows XP in C , E for my spaces and F for Win7 .. I installed Ubuntu by Pendrive booting , and
Installed by choosing Install alongside Windows7 .. and Ubuntu installed in hidden drive ..

for a month I worked best , Today evening my Google Chrome in Ubuntu crashed but Ubuntu worked well. So to play a game I switched to XP. After some time I shutdown the XP and sleep, and then booted my system , Unfortunately I can’t boot into my Ubuntu(please see video below)

Now I can Install new copy of Ubuntu, but I have so many apps installed , and personal settings ..

So is there any way to repair my Ubuntu ..? please see video..

Config.
Intel ATOM D425KT , 2 GB RAM, 500 GB HD .

    Your error is "No init found. Try passing init=bootarg"

    Now,to solve it,you need to boot your system with a Live CD/DVD and follow the instructions mentioned by the forum user -

    plavery -

    " ........ Followed: fsck -y /dev/sda1
    After booting to 10.04 cd, went to terminal and typed sudo -s then the command above. Only had to type "yes" once the terminal screen filled up with "Y" 's re-booted and all was good. Thanks everyone so much, had the problem fixed in approx 30 minutes. "

    where sda1 can be root drive.

    If it doesn't works,try the suggestion of another forum user -

    " .........
    1. LiveCD / LiveUSB (my preference)
    2. Dash -> Disk Utility
    3. Mount Volume (try this first, if it mounts skip to #6 otherwise go to #4)
    4*. Check FileSystem (this will run a check and repair anything it needs to)
    5*. Mount Volume (second attempt, should work after Filesystem check if it didn't before)
    6. Close Disk Utility & Shutdown/Restart your computer.
    7. Remove the LiveCD (before shutdown) or the LiveUSB (after shutdown)
    8. Restart (may or may not go to GRUB menu, if it does choose the first option).

    *Note - steps 4. & 5. are only for if the first Mount Volume attempt fails.

    That should do it! You should now be back into your desktop.
