Upon booting computer, the first few seconds seem to boot normally. Then the display says "Welcome to emergency mode! ..." I've checked
Code:
journalctl -xb
, but I don't know what most of that means. I did notice this message:
fsck failure code 4.
I've rebooted several times and it does the same thing every time. Once or twice it has included this message at the welcome to ... screen:
Code:
ext4_mb_generate_buddy:757: group 82, block bitmap and bg descriptor inconsistent: 28665 vs 28657 free clusters
I read somewhere to try to fsck the partition. My computer is dual boot and the Win 7 partition seems to have no problems whatsoever, so I'm assuming it's a problem with /, which is sda7 on my machine. I also read that you can't run fsck on a mounted partition, so I don't know how to run fsck on / while I'm logged on.

I started the computer with the Fedora install disk and used fdisk -l to be sure of the partition. In a terminal there, I
Code:
su
fsck /dev/sda7
and nothing seemed to happen.
Then I read somewhere else that if I
Code:
su
cd /
touch /forcefsck
that will fsck at start up and won't mess anything up. Then in the journalctl I saw a msg to use
fsck.mode=force. No idea where/how to do that.

Still an error when I reboot. I logged in as root at 'welcome to emergency' screen, changed init 1, then tried fsck -r. I don't know if did anything.

I've tried a bunch of stuff. The dmesg has:
Code:
ext4_mb_generate_buddy:757: group 82, block bitmap and bg descriptor inconsistent: 28665 vs 28657 free clusters
this still. Don't know what it means. I'm guessing something on the disk isn't playing nice. Every time I've started Firefox since this message has started, Firefox does not start with the same tabs as I closed it with, which is the option I selected for it. I check to see that option is selected each time I log on, but it still is just starting at my home page, so this may be related.

Any help is welcome!
