Bootsector and backup are different

Postby Wayno-san on Sat Apr 05, 2008 1:34 am

I get a boot failure Stating that the files system check failed and that I should repair it manually. I noticed a few post about this but my problem is that the bootsector is apparently different than its backup. See the log attached. How should I resolve this without messing anything up? Thanks!

This is probably not a simple one - you can probably live without the FAT32 partition for now
If you have windows installed boot win and try to fix it from there
What are sda6 and sda7?
They also have strange errors

I remember that Ubuntu Feisty ALWAYS ran fsck each 20th time you boot, could this be possible to implement in Mint as well?

Well this is the normal case, but not for fat and ntfs and I think it's every 30th time

sda6 & 7 are backup partitions of my home and root partitions. I've not had luck restoring linux partitions in the past and I don't know where the errors come from.

Tried running the scan from Windows but it did not allow me to run a "file scan", just a "surface scan". Maybe i'll try it with a boot disk to see if I have better luck.
