Perhaps you might try booting with Knoppix or something and see if it can access your filesystem. If it can, back up your data.

Then try using the "--rebuild-tree" option like it suggests.

You may need to edit fstab as hdb10 may no longer be your root partition (after adding new partitions). Boot with the live/rescue cd and edit fstab.

Perhaps this is the problem. Not enough info regarding your setup to be certain.

hi franklin , spoon
i hav tried booting in the rescue mode , using the installation cd , i couldn't get acces to the fs.

I hav used the "lost partion recovery console", and it suggests that it will hav to delete my all existing partitions hdb2 hdb3 hdb4------hdb12 in order to recover the new partitions , and it will hav to make partition table again.
i cannot edit the fstab as i can't get acces to my fs.


tell me how can i edit fstab without getting into it.

thanks ....................in advance
