Expecting help at high risk related to booting Fedora18


Sir at present I installed two operating systems on my system they are Fedora18X86-64 and opensuse12.2X86-64. One( suse ) for general purpose and another( Fedora ) to learn about Linux,Unix operating systems and installed FreeBSD,Sco Unixware7.1.4,Windows7 as guest operating systems under VMWare Workstation9 with lot of struggle.

At the time of installing Fedora OS I selected single partition of size 60GB and formatted it as root(/) of type LVM and installed complete Operating System and created virtual machines of other OSís on other partitions.

Few hours back while working on Fedora, power failure occurred and at that time I was running FreeBSD virtual machine.

Now I am unable to log in to my Fedora system. An error message appeared that partition corrupted.

Please suggest me what to do now in order to boot into my Fedora system successfully I mean whether I can use opensuse12.2 Operating system or Fedora DVD in rescue mode etc., with in detail.

Please help me to solve my problem without loss of data, applications etc.,

Regards,
Rupesh.

It would help if you actually told us what the error was, instead of a vague description, as we've asked you several times in the past. Unless you provide useful details, and exact messages, there's little anyone can do to help you.

Since you're running vmware on top of Fedora, chances are you just need to fsck the corrupted partitions. Had you read the error message, you probably would have seen the command it told you to run to do so.

Turn it on, get to a prompt. Chances are, it will tell you to enter a password to get to maintenance mode, and also tell you what partition is corrupted, and even have a command on the screen, like "fsck /dev/sda1", or something similar. Run that command. You can even put "fsck -a", which will automatically fix the errors. A VERY brief Google search would even turn up lots on how to do this.

Sorry I have not explained in detail because I thought that it may become lengthy and so you may not read it.

I am afraiding that if I do something without proper guidance the system may be totally corrupted.

when I turn on my system I am getting the following message on screen.

welcome to emergency mode Type "systemctl default" or ^D to enter default mode.
Type "journalctl -b" to view system logs.
Type "systemctl reboot" to reboot
Give root password for maintainance.

I issued ^D which listed following errors.
[ systemd-udevd[572]: 'mtp-probe /sys/devices/pci0000:00:13.1/usb6/6-3 6-2' [633] terminated by signal 15 (terminated)
[systemd-udevd[549]: worker [569] did not accept message -1 (connection refused) kill it.

I am getting errors alot similar to above.

Please help me.

Regards,
Rupesh.

And having to ask over and over again for details is worse, as is having to ask each time.

...which is why the system TELLS YOU WHAT TO DO

So, the system VERY CLEARLY tells you to give the root password for maintenance...so you hit ^D to try to continue to boot???? From my first reply, I even told you to get to maintenance mode too....yet you ignore the advice, and say you need 'guidance'. Why ask for guidance if you're not going to follow it??

AGAIN: Get to maintenance mode, and issue the fsck command on the drive partitions it tells you about.
