Your example reminded me of the error of my ways or rather syntax. The , was missing in the following line: UUID= / noatime,errors=remount-ro 0 1 and now everything seems to be quite normal. I tested it by mount -a so now I will try a reboot and hope I don't need the rescue disk. Again, many thanks.
