AHHH!! kernal panic not syncing attepted to kill init!!!

Postby amanda89 on Wed Mar 18, 2009 6:11 pm

what just happened i was fine! I CANT LOSE the data on the hard drive the family business depends on it, oh why didnt i backup yesterday!
happily dual booting windows vista and linux mint daily, then just now it comes up with errors:

more 1.980013 errors
1.980013 EIP [<c01d8c48>] __block_write_full_page+0xc8/0x3d0 SS:ESP 0068: f702bd2c

1.984586 end trace 4eaa2a8698e2da22

1.980676 kernal panic not syncing attempted to kill init

_

what can i do? is this a hardware failure and just a matter of replacing a component or have i lost the data forever?

Very hard to say what happened
Can you use the live CD?
If you can you can also access your files
If you can't boot Vista then you can repair grub from the live CD
http://www.linuxmint.com/wiki/index.php ... _your_grub
Then you have access to Vista again and possibly Mint
Kernel panic is an expression used when the kernel meats a serious error - as Wikipedia states
detecting an internal fatal error from which it cannot safely recover
and that can be that it somehow does not boot properly
In case of a serious crisis that needs to be fixed quickly go to the IRC
#linuxmint on spotchat (if you can't use Mint)

I fear hardware error... The SATA controller....
That is if you previously booted this CD and it's not damaged
Is it an IDE or a SATA CD/DVD?

I think that's a good idea but there's a risk that the disk died completely
