Boot problem initramfs error in ubuntu 10.04 Lucid


Hi ,
Today when i Login to my Ubuntu Desktop 10.04 Lucid ,it stuck with error initramfs prompt .So i mount the harddrive seconday and tried out to recover my backup .but it failing to mount itd delievring the following error and mounting

root@docs:~# mount /dev/sdb7 /mnts/

i also tried to mount using ext3

#mount -t ext3 /dev/sdb7 /mnts. but same error repaeting off


mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb7,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so



root@docs:~# fdisk -l

The message shows wrong filesystem type, run the df -T command to see if sdb7 is actually ext3.
