View Full Version : error mounting logical volume

22nd November 2009, 01:12 PM
Hi, while messing around with windows sucks partitions I accidentally erased a windows sucks partition. Now when I turn on my computer it halts on grub>

if I type:

grub> root (hd0,0)
grub> kernel /vmlinuz- ro root=/dev/mapper/vg_drake-lv_root rhgb quiet
grub> initrd /initrd-
grub> boot

computer starts normal booting and then:

Starting udev [ok]
Setting hostname [ok]
mdadm: No arrays found in config file or automatically

Refusing activation of partial LV lv_software. Use --partial to override.
2 logical volume(s) in volume group "vg_drake" now active.
Checking filesystems

fsck.ext3: No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/vg_drake/lv_software
The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2 filesystem. If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2 filesystem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock:
e2fsck -b 8193 <device>
*** An error occurred during the file system check.
*** Dropping you to a shell, the system will reboot when you leave the shell.
*** Warning --SELinux is active
*** Disabling security enforcement for system recovery. Run 'setenforce 1' to reenable.
Give your root password for maintenance
(or type Control-D to continue):

If anyone could help me restore the boot configuration or at least boot without lv_software I would really appreciate it.

Thanks in advance
