My computer always hacked by Criminal Class A cops being Headquater Police Station Malaysia to cause me need to press shutdown button , consequence Linux cannot startup.

Code:
Ubuntu
Ubuntu (safe graphics)
OEM install (for manufacturers)
Boot from next volume
UEFI Firmware Settings

The system have no rescue mode nor advanced mode, only above selection and I press 'e' to modify the startup parameters error.

Code:
setparams 'Start Kubuntu'

set   gfxpayload=keep
linux /casper/vmlinuz file=/xxxxxxxxxx maybe-ubiguity quiet splash ---
initrd /casper/initrd

Source: [Solved] Installation Issues

When I press "F10" there prompt me an error which is need to load kernel first... Here I modify the startup parameters as below.

Code:
setparams "Start Kubuntu"

set    gfxpayload=keep
linux  /boot/vmlinuz-5.15.7-051507-generic root=/dev/sda2
initrd /casper/initrd
boot

But another error (attach files) prompt me after press "F10"...

Code:
...
Cannot open root device "sda2" or unknown-block(0,0): error -6
Please append a correct "root=" boot option...
...
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)
...

------

Reference:

- Live USB error "you need to load the kernel first"
- grub error: you need to load kernel first

I'm not sure I understand the full significance of the link. It sounds like it's because you detected that the police were hacking your computer, that you shut it down speedily pushing and holding the "start-up/shutdown button", rather than use a shutdown command which would have shut the computer down gracefully? If you did shut it down in such a way without letting it unmount filesystems and close programs gracefully, then some disruption to the installed OS could certainly occur.

Without dealing with the perplexing context of the situation, the kernel has told you in the logs evident in your images, that it cannot find the root filesystem. Hence it goes into "panic" and the system can't boot.

There are a few things to try. You could boot up a live disk, say a ubuntu one on usb but any good system rescue disk will do, and run a file check on the hard drive with the fsck command. That command needs to check the hard drive filesystem whilst it's unmounted. It can report errors and give you the choice of repairing them, and repair them depending on the options you use with the command. Often in the past when some linux computers of mine suffered power outages, they would automatically do a file check with fsck on the next boot, and correct themselves. Since this doesn't appear to have happened with your system, you could try it manually. The fact that it didn't do that sort of file check could be ominous. If the manual file check fails to repair and resolve the issues, then you might consider reinstalling grub, also from a live disk or a system rescue disk. Grub can often find the root filesystems and set booting back to normal. If the damage is at a lower level and messing with the partitions themselves, then you're probably looking at a re-installation. If there has been electrical/electronic/physical damage to the drives, then they may need to be replaced. It happens.

It looks like You are missing the initramfs
try and Choose another kernel from the GRUB menu under Advanced options for Ubuntu and run
sudo update-initramfs -u -k version (replace version with the kernel version string such as 4.15.0-36-generic) then sudo update-grub. and re-boot

Get one of these A/B switches and only connect one computer to the A channel of it.


If and when you need to disconnect from the internet fast just switch it to the B channel.

Yeah it's an old fashion method but works immediately when the user switches it.

If using wireless than just switch off your modem.

This method has saved my butt from several compromising disasters when using Windows OSs.

No, I believe the edit was to add the screenshots, which previously were referenced elsewhere.

I have removed one link, and deleted Rado's gratuitous comment.
