Hello, I have a dual boot notebook (windows xp/Suse 10.1) and all was working fine, using GRUB boot lodader...but yesterday i decided to create a new partition for windows, so I resized the existing sigle windows partition and created a new one (used Acronis disk director). This action "moved" all the partitions below the new one "down" a notch, so my boot partition moved from /dev/sda6 to /dev/sda7...
Naturally, grub gave me an error msg when i tried to boot...so I went into the command line mode 'c' >> geometry (hd0) >> find /dev/fstab (answer: hd0,5) >> find /boot/vmlinuz (answer: hd0,6). Got the new addresses for the relevant partitions, edited the "SUSE Linux 10.1" line in the boot loader 'e' to match the new config...and told it to boot 'b'...the nice suse boot screen showed up and it seemd to be going ok till i get an :
"fsck failed for at least one filesystem (not /)."
"Please repair manually and reboot."
"The root filesystem is already mounted read-write."
and, after typing the root pwd, i get a promt waiting for me to do something....I ran fsck manually on all my unmounted linux partitions (/dev/sda7...11) and only /dev/sda11 failed...but this is my swap partition, it's not an ext2 filesystem...so i really don't know what to do from here... :/
Thanks for any pointers!!
p.s: windows will boot normally from the grub menu as before....no changes were necessary
