Cannot continue to boot Ubuntu 64 bit Linux due to FSCK error in superblock
 
Hi Everyone,

Today for strange reason, one of my Ubuntu 64 bit server Linux VM failed to start ?
it stopped in the FSCK scan status with the error as attached.

few days back I've added new hard disk successfully and format it as sdb5 without problem.

Any guidance and comments will be highly appreciated.

Thanks.

Use system rescue live cd and see if partitions are ok, then check

disk utilities --> does that means I must use GParted or the Linux ISO disc itself ?

and unfortunately I couldn't copy paste the /etc/fstab content here because the boot process was stuck as in the screenshot.

try editing the grub entry to add the kernel line init=/bin/bash
if it gets to a prompt try
Code:

fsck -f {volume}
note the -f switch appears to be undocumented but does a more thorough scan

Thanks for your response mate, however I've made changes to the /etc/fstab from 2 into all 0 then it boot up normally.
so can I conclude that since this Linux is running as Virtual Machine, therefore no need to perform any FSCK (for all Linux VM make the FSCK level into 0) ?
