I’m frustrated

Can't boot, ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uuid/XXXXXXXX does not exist. Dropping to a shell!

Can't boot, ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uuid/XXXXXXXX does not exit. Dropping to a shell!

This is the error I get when I try to boot jolicloud (it's setup as booting from within a file stored on a windows drive). I'm not sure what went wrong here, as I don't think I changed anything. It just started happening all of a sudden.

After doing some searching a lot of similar problems (not jolicloud specific though) were resolved by increasing the timeout, which was not the case for me. If I wait in busybox and then type exit I immediately get the same error.

Primarily, I'd like to fix this, but if I can't I'd at least like to know how I can get the data off my jolicloud "file" root.disk on my WinXP partition.

Thanks for any help!
