fstab problem

Postby Cpnsiutroy on Sun Jan 13, 2013 3:16 pm

I have been roaming the internet for awhile now but I have not been able to find anything to fit my situation exactly.
When booting up right after I installed Linux Mint 14, there is only a blank screen where there should be the start up logo. I restart and I am presented with:
Code: Select all
Alert!  /dev/disk/by-uuid/###... does not exist.

I tried using Supergrub/rescatux and with this tiny netbook I am putting it on, the hard drive cannot be seen.

My fdisk and fstab looks as follows (respectively):
Code: Select all
Disk /dev/sda: 16.4 GB, 16358768640 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 1988 cylinders, total 31950720 sectors

Thank you to anyone in advance!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Try mounting your filesystems without having the UUID in the fstab. Do your research first before you do it though. As far as I know the UUID is only so that your system remembers the sorting order of the drives. You can always re-add the UUID's back after you figure out the problem.
