i try to boot the rescue cd via usb and end up with this:

trying to find arl_rootfs.ext2 root file system: attempt 2
found /dev/sdb: Generic- Multi-Card
usb 5-2: device not accepting address 5, error -71
hub 5-0:1.0: unable to enumerate USB device on port 2
trying to find arl_rootfs.ext2 root file system: attempt 3
found /dev/sdb: Generic- Multi-Card
no arl_rootfs.ext2 root file system found
booting process cannot continue
exiting in 10 seconds
Kernel panic - not synching: Attempted to kill init!
Pid: 1, comm: init Not tainted 2.6.34 #1
Call Trace:.....

nothing happens after that except my caps lock light blinking. i have no idea what all this means. ive tried remaking the boot usb. making the cd is not possible, for my cd drive can only read dvds. this is very frustrating

Hello dbarton,

Please try use another Linux live cd like e.g Ubuntu, also you can try use AVG rescue CD burned on CD (using different PC for burning CD).

Thank you

Hello dbarton,

in case your optical drive cannot read CD's due to an error, you may try to burn the CD image to a DVD. It is mentioned as verified in this Ubuntu forum thread.

The provided error message suggests that it is not possible to attach an USB device (and find ARL root file system then). This could be theoretically caused by a hardware issue. Have you tried different USB drive and different USB port?
Some live OS Linux distributions users mentioned similar error (unable to enumerate USB flash drive) that unplugging the computer from power source and plugging it again after a while resolved the issue which would suggest hardware issue.

Thank you.

I had once made a cd. It works in my other computer. The one with problem will not allow me to click on the I agree button. Nothing happens. Not sure what to do next.

Hiya,

Just had the same problem with 'unable to file system file ext2' on an Acer Aspire 5750. I'm running the latest recovery USB created from a fresh ZIP file.

Moving the USB stick to the left hand USB port resolved the issue. It seems the rear port on the right hand side is USB 3.0 (it's blue as opposed to the normal black) so I'm assumign this uses a different Linux driver? I've not verified the BIOS settings for the 3.0 port as I'm looking to make minimal changes as it's not my laptop.

Solution seems to be try different ports if you get this problem in the future. Maybe a USB 2.0 hub connected to a USB 3.0 port would work? Anyway, I'm happy as the scan is now running.

Chat soon.

thanks for the tip on switching usb ports. now it's booting but there's no network connection. Is there an updated one with appropriate drivers for an hp 8460p laptop?
