Failure to mount hard drive

Postby FreeFragSGS on Mon Sep 14, 2009 2:07 pm

For months I've been having issues with my laptop. Right now I'm only able to use the laptop by running it off a live disc of Linux Mint 6 Xfce. I have discovered something odd when mucking around: my HD actually shows up as /media/disk/ whenever I use the open/save dialogs in an application, and afterward I can access the files from it like nothing is wrong. But I still can't boot from it.

This is a cut from what shows up on the screen when it tries to load:

Code: Select all
mount: mounting /dev/sda1 on /root failed: Invalid argument
mount: mounting /root/dev on /dev/.static/dev failed: No such file or directory
mount: mounting /sys on /root/sys failed: No such file or directory
mount: mounting /proc on /root/proc failed: No such file or directory
Target filesystem doesn't have /sbin/init.
No init found.


There was some other stuff, but this looked most important from what it showed on the screen. From what I gather, this is output from BusyBox v1.10.2.

I'm hoping this is a software issue as I've done research and found similar cases where it could be resolved, but they usually revolve around situations where there's a dual boot. This hard drive is not dual booted and has never even had Windows installed on it in the past.

So... help? This is also impacting my ability to do freelance work (which, given current economic circumstances, I really need), as I've gotten several requests for it but I've had to turn it down.

Also, I have tried moving personal data to an external drive, but the drive has been around since I was using Windows and has backed-up data, but the drive is formatted NTSC and won't allow me to write to it. It also doesn't recognize the main internal HD when I try to run the Install app from the desktop. As can probably be understood, I do feel that "reinstall Linux" is a last resort response, not a first resort.

Boot again using the Live CD. Open a terminal and type the following commands and show us the output to these commands:
Code: Select all
sudo fdisk -l
df -h
dmesg | grep -i error

Crap... maybe it is a hardware issue afterall. Ticks me off because it was installed about three months prior to the issue.

Re: Failure to mount hard drive

Postby lagagnon on Tue Sep 15, 2009 10:17 am

Yes, those error messages above from dmesg show you have a faulty hard drive. Find out exactly the make/model of hard drive (cat /proc/scsi/scsi) and then download and burn the UltimateBootCD and see of you can repair the drive with the hard drive tools. Often it does not work, but sometimes you might get lucky.
