Hello. There is the same problem with a new, latest Linux
4.4.0-115-generic kernel (updated today). I've tried to boot system with
'nosplash' option (set via GRUB etc.) and it seems, that there is a
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 modules (cat /proc/modules; ls /dev)
ALERT! UUID=* does not exist. Dropping to a shell!
BusyBox v1.22.1 (Ubuntu 1:1.22.0-15ubuntu1) built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a lost of built-in commands.
However, I've decided try to boot v4.4.0-115-generic kernel once again,
because above 'ALERT!' message was very interesting for me, but this
time, without 'kaslr' option. So, in a GRUB menu I removed this option
and press CTRL + x. Everything was okay - system boot normally.
It seems, that there is a problem with a 'kaslr' in latest 16.04 LTS
Release kernels (I'm having this problem since update to the
v4.4.0-113.136 kernel version.
Should I create a new bug report about 'kaslr' and latest kernel
