i installed linux a while back and worked fine.
woke up this morning, went to start up and i got this crap during bootup:


/dev/hdd1 was not cleanly unmounted, check forced.

/dev/hdd1: |===================== - 37.5%


Heres some info:

Linux Mandrake
i think 9.2
Linux is on my second hardrive
windows xp is on the first harddrive
windows xp boots fine
It stops at 37.5% and dosent move from there. It stops loading or Hangs.

any help would be greatly appreciated. i really need linux back, if you can help me, post as soon as possible.

Couple questions:
1) Is it a dual boot sytem, if so what boot loader are you using.
2) Are you using Samba or loading your linux drives into windows?
3) its freezing at 37.5% I take it.
4) Can you mount the drive when doing a rescue boot?

Ok, hughesjr should be able to answer your question better he checks the forum at least daily. We will get your quesiont answered. Just relax.

well:
1) dualboot,lilo i think
2) hmm..im not a linux guru, im still egtting the hang of linux..
heres what ill say, mabe thisll help you:

ive heard of samba , and seen its name while i was using linux, but never had to bother with it.
i just installed mandrake, and the only problems i even had were no sound.

I can acess my hd0 (or is it hd1) from linux ( NTFS ) but i cant acess my linux drive (ext1 or ext2 or sumthin) fro windows.

3) yeh, it freezes there and dosent move, i went on my other computer, got somehting eat and came back and it didnt move, so i knew it was frozen
4) never tried, and i dont know what/how is a resuue boot, and dont kno how thatll help my normal boot up

there u go, please help!

Not cleanly unmounted means that something happened on shutdown of the drive ... powered off without a proper shutdown, a hung process that caused the drive not to be able to be unmounted, etc.

Do you know what type of file system it is? (ReiserFS, ext2, ext3, etc.)

hdd1 is the first partition of the secondary slave drive ....

Try booting from the Mandrake CD-1 .... press esc and at the command prompt type:

linux rescue

when asked, exit to the console (without mounting your system)...

if you have either ext2 or ext3, at the root prompt type:

e2fsck -f -v /dev/hdd1
