apt-get is not existing as command

Asked by Roger

Hello everybody,

So I want to make from my old Packerd Bell EasyNote E5145 a little server whit apache on it. I've installed Ubuntu Server 8.04 LTS cause 9.0x is to heavy for it. But now, when i reboot it said:

"The kernel requires the following features not present on the CPU 0:6
Unable to boot - please use a kernel appropriate for your CPU".

So I searched for some answers to resolve the problem. And I found them here:

But if a come at the shell part it said:

"~ # apt-get install linux-generic
/bin/sh: apt-get: not found"

I don't see what the problem is. I hope someone can help me.

Greets Roger

Reading the https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+question/23343

"I find that the fix of bug 151942 works here too. You have to boot the server install CD and choose "Rescue a broken system". When you get the prompt, run "apt-get install linux-generic" to install the generic kernel. Reboot and choose the new kernel in GRUB."

Are you booting your pc entirely using the server install CD...?

Thank you

It won't take apt-get or aptitude like a found in other topics.

have you tried "chroot /target" before apt-get ??
On c.jpg It tells you that your disk is mounted on /target so if you wanna make changes on your actual instalation you have to switch your root "/" to / target, that is issued by chroot /target
