Centos not able to reboot: fsck.ext3 could this be a zero length partition
 
I am stuck in a problem. i am not able to start my system. it has centos 5 installed on it and gives the following error on reboot:

fsck.ext3: Attempt to read blocks from filesystem resulted in short read while trying to open /dev/VolGroup01/bkup

could this be a zero length partition?


anyone for help

Did you try with the linux rescue mode with the help of CD/DVD?

Hi:

Did you change/modify your partition table?
Or use G-parted?

Do you have your distribution DVD/CD?

Moderator note: I have merged two threads. Both have responses, so it would be bad to loose them.

Using rescue mode, you can access the files stored on your system's hard drive, even if you cannot actually run Linux from that hard drive.

These pages should help you to understand.
Hope that helps
