I am trying to upgrade to Fedora ... already deleted my old version unfortunately ... installation goes fine but when it boots up for the first time it gives the following:
Ext3-fs error (device ide0(3,3):ext3_check_descriptors: Block bitmap for group 32 not in group (block 1351637227)!
Ext3-fs: group descriptors corrupted
mount:error 22 mounting ext3 Kernel panic: No init found. Try passing init= to kernel
I tried linux 3 and init= 3 of course but nothing works. The problem obviously is that somehow my partition table got mixed up and changed the order so when the kernel is trying look for the binary (init)) in the location from the installation its not there anymore...
Do I need to change fstab - this is what it says rite now:
....and what exactly do I need o change it to because I am not sure what that LABEL points to?? I know this can be fixed .. I had the same problem before but I cant remember what I did then (should have written it down .. I know) ... Does anyone know the answer to this riddle???
Ok .. I am positive now its the fstab that needs to b updated to reflect the correct partitionig, but how do I change it so that / gets mounted on the correct partition so that the kernel can find /sbin/init???
