Hi,

Sorry to make you double post the fstab, I forgot you already did that. When in the recovery mode type
Code:
mount
and post output here please.

Kind regards,

Eric

Hi,

I don't see anything off in these configs only that you are missing your swap. When you reboot do you still have to login to the recovery console and take it from there or can you start normally?

To make your swap work do the following as root or using sudo.
Code:
mkswap /dev/sda6
swapon /dev/sda6
Next check if the UUID for /dev/sda6 is still the same with (as root or with sudo in front):
Code:
blkid
If necessary change your fstab accordingly to mount the swap at boot. You can check if swap is being used with (might be with sudo):
Code:
swapon -s
Kind regards,

Eric
