Question Need help finding my mounted HD while booted up on liveCD.


Hi I have a Fedora 12 system. Having some boot problems here and I booted up my Fedora 12 live CD to troubleshoot it. My boot problem is I get to this message:

Registering binary handler for windows applications:

Then the screen flashes a few times and enternal hang begins. I installed wine before the reboot. I cannot figure out where my HD (which is sata btw) is after liveCD bootup. I figured I could turn wine off some how. Is it in rc.d or init.d?

Anyhow here is my mount info from terminal. Any help greatly appreciated.

[root@localhost liveuser]# mount
/dev/mapper/live-rw on / type ext4 (rw,noatime)
proc on /proc type proc (rw)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw,rootcontext="system_ubject_r:tmpfs_t:s0")
none on /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc type binfmt_misc (rw)
/dev/sr0 on /mnt/live type iso9660 (ro)
varcacheyum on /var/cache/yum type tmpfs (rw,mode=0755,rootcontext="system_ubject_r:rpm_var_cache_t:s0")
/tmp on /tmp type tmpfs (rw,rootcontext="system_ubject_r:tmp_t:s0")
vartmp on /var/tmp type tmpfs (rw,rootcontext="system_ubject_r:tmp_t:s0")
sunrpc on /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs type rpc_pipefs (rw)
/dev/sda1 on /media/disk type ext4 (rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=hal)
[root@localhost liveuser]#

Oh btw I do see my grub partition which is sda1 under /media/disk Im guessing my filesystem would be under sda3? I also dont know if its ext4 or what fs. I let Fedora install the defaults.

Yeah all I see is a 200mb partition listed under /media/disk

/dev/sda1 on /media/disk type ext4 (rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=hal)

Its grub basically. I have a 300+ gb drive so I would think /media/disk would
match the actual drive size. It looks to me like it only mounted the first partition.

I think it should look like this:

sda1 => bootloader and kernel(s)
sda2 => swap space
sda3 => root filesystem

When I try and mount sda3 it says its mounted or busy =\

Typically the default install creates 2 partitions, a /boot (sda1) and a LVM which contains your / and swap. I have not played with Fedora in a long time and I would expected some built in tools to mount your /. Look at the output of the fdisk -l command to see how your drive is partitioned and look at posted link to mount your /

Booted to single user mode and fixed partition but still kind of wondering wtf. Your main fs should be mounted in the liveCD and it is not. It only mounts grub. Which isnt exactly hard to work with if you know how to read lol.
