[Software] Can't Boot, stuck at "Loading initial ramdisl"

#1 Post by jdflkfdshl »

This is an MX Linux machine which I had set up for work. I hadn't been using it since the start of the year, but just kept it left on for a few months. A little while ago, I came back to it and nothing was saving, so I tried to restart it. Have not been able to boot it since.

The screen eventually gives me the following: My question is what should I do? https://imgur.com/a/XuyxnRn

For MX issues you need to ask at MX forums. This is Debian forums.

Moved to Off-Topic.

I'm trying to register there but the confirmation email isn't going through. Went right through on Debian forums. Anyway, isn't MX basically just Debian with some AntiX and MX programs pre-installed?
