Hi...I am still rather new to linux as I have only been using it for about a month. The power went out the other night and now Mint wont boot. I was going to just reinstall as I have nothing personal in linux yet as I am still learning. But, what the hey, I figured fixing it would be as good a learning process as any.
Here is the message I get when I try to boot Mint:
Starting up ...
[ 11.332004 ] ata1: SRST failed (errno=-16)
[ 21.340004 ] ata1: SRST failed (errno=-16)

[ 61.404004 ] ata1: SRST failed (errno=-16)
Loading, please wait...
Gave up waiting for root device. Common Problems:
- Boot args (cat /proc/cmdline)
- Check rootdelay= (did the system wait long enough?)
- Check root= (did the system wait for the right device?)
- Missing modules (cat /proc/modules; ls /dev
ALERT! /dev/sta4 does not exist. Dropping to a shell!
BusyBox v1.10.2 (Ubuntu 1:1.10.2-2unbuntu7) built-in shell (ash)

Any help would be great. Thanks in advance!
