Repair Filesystem error

i deleted 2 unused partitions on linux '/DSA' and '/DSADATA' and installed windows(ntfs).Now when i boot linux ,i get an FSCK.EXT3 unable to find LABEL='/DSA',LABEL='/DSADATA'.i had deleted this partition to install windows.FSCk of this label gives the same msg
unable to find LABEL='/DSA'.Why is it searching for the label that was deleted.

Thanks in advance

What's happening is that, while your system is booting, fsck is getting run on each entry in /etc/fstab. You probably still have entries for those partitions in that file, and all you need to do is remove them or comment them out and you'll be fine. To do this, either boot some kind of live media and access your root partition from there, or, if you are being given the option of a root shell after that password, do it directly there. (Your system may be mounted read-only, preventing you from editing /etc/fstab - if so, do `mount -o remount /` and it'll be writable.)
