Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Boot up with a Live CD or something and check your menu.lst file (/boot/grub/menu.lst) , make sure the entry for Mint is pointing to the correct drive.

I've heard of this error occurring when your kernel doesn't have support for the FS type which you are trying to boot from. Still, looking through Menu.lst is a good place to start. You may also want to take a look here:

I thinks I know how to fix it but it's just mounting it annoyance now, I just don't know were to look any more :'(

Code: Select all
you need to edit "/etc/lilo.conf"

add this:

--------------------------------



image = /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.11.4

root = /dev/hd*

label = **any thing**

read-only 



point root the the main hdd
