    I just mounted the image on a SSD USB device with Win32DiskManager and everything worked. Now i’m on my rig and it says :
    Gave up waiting for root device. Common problems :
    -Boot args (cat /proc/cmdline)
    – Check rootdelay (did the system wait long enough?)
    – Check root= (did the system wait for the right device?)
    – Missing modjules (cat /proc/modupes; ls /dev)
    ALERT ! /dev/sda1 does not exist. Dropping to a shell!
    Can you help me please ?
    Kind regards,

  • Thanks for reaching out. It sounds like the image file didn't make it to your drive correctly. Check out our instructions on writing image to HDD/SSD, and try to reimage again. If the problem is still there, you may want to try using a different disk.
