My FC4 laptop is refusing to boot. It hangs early in the startup process, shortly after the BIOS is initialized, with the following error:
GRUB Loading Stage2... read error
If I try booting the system from FC4 rescue disk using default settings, I get another error:
kernel panic - not synching VFS
not able to mount root fs on block...
I have been able to boot Knoppix (v4.0) and can mount and browse the laptop partitions. However, I am unable to chroot to the root directory:
returns "Bus error".
I have run fsck on the partitions and corrected some errors, but still the GRUB error. Any suggestions?
