Recently I made a few changes, using Gparted, to the partitioning on my disk of my Linux Mint installation, and since then I am getting an error (from GRUB2 I assume) upon booting up into Mint, before Mint boots, a message which appears so briefly on the screen, that I barely have time to read all exactly what it says before the OS boots. It is something like the following: "The disk uuid=[long string of numbers and letters]…. is not ready yet or not present, Continue to wait; or Press S to skip mounting or M for manual recovery." So far I have made no attempt to press either S or M, but have just waited this brief time I mentioned and then the OS boots. My Mint disk partitions before making the change (and before encountering this error) looked as follows here: http://imagebin.org/203625
and after the change (with error message occuring as described) now looks as follows here: http://imagebin.org/204013
The modifications I made to the Linux partition system were:
1. Resize root partition (made smaller).
2. Deleted logical swap partition previously located within sda2 (extended partition).
3. Deleted extended partition.
4. Created new swap partition as primary.
Since the change(s) in partitioning, Linux has been booting normally other than the pre-boot error message as described.
Why might this error message be occuring? And just as importantly what might I be able to do to fix/avoid such error? thanks
