Cannot boot. Errors on disk.
Out of nowhere I suddenly cannot boot my laptop. It appears I have errors on /dev/sda5. I dualboot with Windows 7 and everything has been working so far.
I tried booting from SystemRescueCD in order to run a fsck on the partition but fsck says it doesn't exist even though "fdisk -l" happily shows it.
What is going on?! How can I run fsck on the partition if it cannot find it?
root@sysresccd /root % fsck -f /dev/sda5
fsck from util-linux 2.21.2
e2fsck 1.42.6 (21-Sep-2012)
fsck.ext2: No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/sda5
Possibly non-existent device?
Although "fdisk -l" shows all partitions /dev/sda1 thru /dev/sda7 1 and 5 being the boot partitions for Windows and Debian respectively.
Anyone? This is driving me mad!
