Hi,

What is the distribution of Linux that you are using? What is the hardware/system specifications?

Post the errors unedited and in the vbcode tags, quote or code at the top of the reply window.

It looks like you've just added a new HDD on your box. I've seemed similar screen once.

If so, first: remove it to get assured it is the reason.
Second: map the drives in your boot loader config.
