Actually, I used to dual boot with win7 and mint14 but thought of using only linux mint 14 .
I have two drive both are 80gb sata drives. While installing linux mint 14 mate, I manually partitioned two drives with names /dev/sda and /dev/sdb.
1) /dev/sda : 30gb for root remaining for ext4 and 3gb for swap and for
2) /dev/sdb : 80gb full ext4
But, after installation I was not able to open both this drives expect 30gb linux system since it was popping "error that it is not mounted".
So, I installed "gparted" and deleted the partition and again formatted 43gb /dev/sda and 80gb /dev/sdb with ext4 filesystem giving labels linuxmint and AIO.
Now, I was able to access it but I thought of doing delete and formatting again using "disks" utility since it was showing bad sectors. This time I gave different label names i.e. linux and mydrive,
The problem is that the bad sectors hasn't gone after doing smart extended function from disk utiliity and whenever I start my sytem there is an fsck(filesystem check) starting but not processing anything I waited for more than 30minutes but still nothing so I stopped the check and it displays that /linuxmint and /AIO drive is not mounted. Actually, this are my previous partitions name and not the new ones.
How to stop this check from starting and how to remove those bad sectors.
- second /dev/sdb1 80gb drive
- Linuxmint installed drive /dev/sda1 with swap and 46gb
