Server crashed - trying to mount hdd


I have a Fedora 19 system and I installed (successfully) drivers for the NVIDIA GPU Card. I thought all was OK, until I rebooted it.

I would like to boot from a USB drive and mount the HDD so I can correct the errors and reboot, but it will not let me.

I've only done something like this with Solaris, so I don't know how to do it with Fedora. Surely there must be a way to mount the HDD after booting up using USB. Could someone please with detailed steps. I am fairly new to Linux.

Thanks in advance!
Roger

what is the OS on the flash drive? if it is linux then yes you can manually mount the HDD the same way you would any other HDD in Linux.

what errors are you getting?

The problem was that the file system - lvm2 was not found, so it would not mount the volume.

The solutions:

set up network
yum install lvm2
system-config-lvm2
lvs
vgchange -ay VolGroup
mkdir /mnt/root
mount /dev/mapper/VolGroup-lv_root /mnt/root

Now if I can just find out why the NVIDIA drivers caused my system to crash at bootup...
Might have something to do with Gnome 3 - which I totally hate. I hope they go back the drawing board with Gnome 4 and get rid
of the "Empathy" - etc. crap.
