Re: Blackout kills harddisk - owner pleads for help!
Dear Dr Debian,
I woke up this morning to discover that there had been a blackout. My
computer had tried to reboot but couldn't even get a LILO prompt.
Actually, that's not completely true, it did manage to get half a
LILO prompt (it printed "LI") and then hung. I tried rebooting again
a couple of times and the same thing happened.
My next strategy was to use my floppy boot disk. It complained with:
hdb: hdb1 hdb2 hdb3
VFS: Cannot open root device 08:01
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 08:01
Then it hung. I would greatly appreciate suggestions on what I should
Thanks in advance,
P.S. I should explain that hda1 is an 850 M hard drive which contains
my debian system. hdb1 is a dos partition. hdb2 is my swap
partition. hdb3 is a spare ext2 partition I use for storing bits and
pieces (ie not part of the main structure).
