Due to things I have found (googled for) I have decided to jump ship, sort of (so to speak), cut a long story short, I think it's a kernel firmware update that's caused this, logically has to be really, since that's the only thing I can imagine has caused this.
Now on the annoyance of having to back it up, I have a workstation that partially runs off this unbootable or definately unusable node.
I have 2 hard drives in the unusable machine, but only 1 spare slot on my usable version of Linux, is it possible to mount 1 individually? I mean I could try and find a way of making some space temporarily and then doing them both, but would the earlier work if I can't do the 2 together?
PS I must have got confused with the other thread I made on the other site where I posted the question but nothing they say seems to work, seems like a really weird situation that I have only seen threads on CentOS 6.x and CentOS 5.2.
I might give this one last try, when it's asking for the rescue image though on CentOS 6.3 recovery mode, what does it actually mean by this, the image of the recovery Operating System on the DVD I have burnt of the OS or the image in the file system on the server I am trying to recover?
That's the part I was getting stuck on.
Any reply is appreciated, to be honest I don't think recovery mode will do what I want it to do.
PS Apologies I am trying to attack this from all angles and really appreciate your reply.
