Hi,

Im experiencing similar problem to the above:

fsck failed. Please repair manually and reboot. The root filesystem is currently mounted read-only.
To remount it read-write do:

bash# mount -n -o remount,rw /

I typed:

fdisk -l /dev/hda

and got sth like this(cant copy&paste):

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 * 1 448 ... 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/hda2 449 3876 ... f W95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/hda5 449 1112 ... 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/hda6 1113 1816 ... b W95 FAT32
/dev/hda7 * 1817 2591 .... 83 Linux
/dev/hda8 2592 3876 ... b W95 FAT32

I ve no idea whats wrong.

Can anyone help?

Hello,

I coudln't find grub.conf, but I guess that /boot/grub/menu.list is used instead?

Here is the menu.list content:
## ## End Default Options ##

title Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.4.27-speakup
root (hd0,6)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.27-speakup root=/dev/hda7 ro
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.4.27-speakup
savedefault
boot

title Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.4.27-speakup (recovery mode)
root (hd0,6)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.27-speakup root=/dev/hda7 ro single
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.4.27-speakup
savedefault
boot

### END DEBIAN AUTOMATIC KERNELS LIST

title Other operating system:
root

# on /dev/hda1
title Microsoft Windows XP Professional
root (hd0,0)
savedefault
makeactive
chainloader +1

Hmm I thought I found the error and changed to
root (hd0,7)
Now it doesn't start at all:
root (hd0,7)
Filesystem type is fat, partition type 0xb
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.27-speakup root=/dev/hda7 ro

Error 15: File not found

hi there

root (hd0,7)
this will start the numbering from 0 so u need to use 6 here

also do this

start ur system in rescue mode then run

fsck -y /dev/hda7

and
fsck -f /dev/hda7

see that ur partitons are umounted when u do this

Hi,

I wish I can start it in a rescue mode but last time I changed the entries I changed also the rescue entries options also

What can I do in this case?

O.K. I started a woody distrubition with resccomp root=/dev/hda7.

Then I could start fsck -y. Which helped. 10nx a lot.

Last question: how did it happen at all that it couldn't start ?

WinXP update ?
