View Full Version : Booting problem

29th November 2008, 09:03 AM
If I post on a wrong board, please let me know.

When I was booting my machine, I got
"error mounting /dev/root on /sysroot as ext3: No such file or directory"

I think that is a LVM issue since I get
"You don't have any linux partitions"
in rescue mode

but I could see my LVM partitions with fdisk -l, the output looks like:

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 25 200781 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 26 9729 77947380 8e Linux LVM

I tried to mount the drive manually, but what I see is:
"mount: unknown filesystem type 'lvm2pv'"

I have also tried many lvm commands to recover my lvm, but those does not work, any measures to make bootable? Please state if you would like to see the output of any commands.

Or it is a partition table problem? Mmm... how to renew a partition table?
