help ! grub stage 2 read error


Hi all,

I have a linux system set up (arch linux) and I was trying to tar-gz a Maildir folder, when I suddenly got 'cannot stat', 'read only filesystem', and my shell was no longer responding to my keyboard ( i was logged in through SSH).

so I went to the machine and did a reset using the reset button, thinking it would come up just fine. but it didn't. GRUB is saying Loading Stage 2.. Read error, and that's where the system hangs now...

how do I get my system back alive? what is broken and how do i fix it?

thanks!
Bert

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
