Disk Drive error while booting.

Post by darky5 »

Hi, i've recently installed Mint 9 x64 aside Windows for the first time.
Everything was going well, untill the last kernel upgrade.
Now everytime i try to boot into Mint, the disk check comes up and i get this error:
"Serious errors were found while checking the disk for drive /home" and it freezes. It doesn't react when i press I for ignore or any other key ecept for function keys and then i see this among other things:
mountall: fsck /home (360) terminated withn status 8
mountall unrecoverable fsck error: /home
I've been browsing Ubuntu forums and other users have reported this kind of problem with Lucid. I can acess my home folder with Live CD and backup everything and do a fresh install, but i'd like to fix this if i can.
Can anyone help?

You could try to check the partition via live-CD

Code: Select all

sudo fdisk -l

... eg sda1

sudo fsck -fyc /dev/sda1
The partition must be unmounted during the operation ..

Thanks, the partition is ok.
I've searched some more and found that adding i915.modeset=1 at the grub boot line worked.
