Hello all I am a nube to linux not that I wanted to use it but the person who was using it at my small company decided that he would start his own business and leave me with no support for my linux boxes.
they ran fine for months then last week I tried to get onto one of them and it just has a black screen and the cursor flashes in the upper left window and never runs through the boot kernel. (like the other box does)
the boxes are almost identical in hardware the only difference is the HDD.
I have already tried pulling the hd from one and swapping with the other with the result being now the same good hd boots the other does not.
I can place them in the same box the good hd boots and I can get in and see that the other hd is there but how can I access the data on it?
