Major disk trouble DRDY ERR and UNC error

Posted 11-07-2012 at 10:08 AM by error_401

Just happened:

Got a nasty error on my laptop running Debian Squeeze. Unable to boot further than initramfs with errors preventing the file system from mounting.

Nasty bugger. Seems to be a bad sector on my HDD. Causes several attempts to read and finally fails with
DRDY ERR and subsequent UNC error triggering the errors:
unable to mount rootfs etc.

Now trying with the installer CD-ROM in recovery mode. A bit nasty as I have unsaved data...
