Ubuntu: Fix “The disk drive for /tmp is not ready yet or not present”

Adding explicitly the /tmp to fstab solves the problem. Just add this to your /etc/fstab file:

tmpfs           /tmp            tmpfs   defaults            0       0

Before rebooting you could run this to delete everything from the /tmp folder:

sudo mv /tmp /tmp_old
sudo mkdir /tmp
sudo chmod -R 777 /tmp
sudo rm -Rf /tmp_old
