Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)


Hi

Not a good day so far
I upgraded my NetBooks HDD last week to a SSD

Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)

I'm using ext2 as my FS as I don't want my NetBook to use journeling and take up the lifetime of the SSD

Obviously I won't boot anymore, but I've been using it all weekend with no problems

Is it broken already? Or will a FS check fix the issue?

Thanks

I have a few more questions that might help us solve this:

What was your partition layout before you swapped out the drive?

How did you copy over the filesystems from the old to the new drive?

I hope you get this solved.

Simple answer, I didn't

I did a brand new install of BackTrack with ext2, but after this error,
I did a new install with ext3, as people were saying that the average
lifetime for SSD under normal use is about 40 years so I went with ext3
