Hello to everyone..i would like some help here.On my hard disk i have installed windows xp and suse 8.1.Up to 4 days ago everything was working perfect.But when i pulled out from hard disk and from motherboard the data cable(rj?) and put it back 1 hour later,the system could not boot.Lilo begins i choose linux and when it reaches the point where checks for partitions it stucks.I can pass this by using as a boot option ide=nodma but then it stucks again by saying.Kernel panic! VFS couldn't mount root 03:03(something like that)I use hda1 for windows and hda3 for linux.The only way that i can log in is by using the 1st CD of linux-->installation safe setting-->boot current system.I tried to have a look in yast at bootlloader configuration option but i am not quite sure what to do.I think 1st thing it asks is where bootloader should be installed 1.Master boot hda...... 2.Boot sector .. 3 .. .4.. I chose the first one.Anyway..any idea what happened?any suggestions?please...(why happened this now that i am doing my dissertation..!*&~@)
how am i going to do this?to make sure that is using dma?I check the bios settings..but i cannot understand just because i pulled out the cable and put it back again it doesnt work?In windows i can log in(with a delay)..In linux i cannot log in even with the safe settings option.Is it a kernel problem?Why it says kernel panic?Or maybe the cable causes the problem?
