Unhappy Input/Output error


Hi

I accidently turn off my computer which runs Fedora 2. After that I am not able to boot anymore, it seems that one of the partition has been damaged (/dev//hda2).
I have tried to load the partition in rescue mode but it give me the error : "Input/Output error"

Is there anyway to fix this? I do not want to reinstall or reformat the partition as it is used during boot time.

Please help.

Sufiah

Hi johnson_steve,

I have tried to do that but it failed saying it might be a zero length paritition although the fact that is much bigger than that.

Hi johnson_steve,

I have tried access /dev/hda, every paritition is listed. However, when I try to verify the partition I get this message "62 unallocated sectors". Sounds to me that the links are broken. I went to expert mode, but not sure what to do.

I am still a newbie, please help.

Thank you.
