My hard disk is bad and instead of buying a new one I would prefer to boot
from my external hard drive.  I installed 13.10 on it.  When I boot  I get

1.168876 kernel panic-  not syncing:  no init found.  try passing
init)option to kernel

I followed the instructions here:

I have tried booting with the hard drive connected and disconnected.  I
installed with it disconnected.  Seemed to hang up with it connected.

Thanks for any suggestions
