On Redhat EL4, web server, with Tomcat 5.0.19,we have a situation where the system crashed and when rebooted it stops in grub. From grub, when we try to mount root paritions or find boot images, using explicit commands, we cannot find them. Seems like the root partition is lost or file mounts corrupted.

Can anyone please tell me why and how this happens? And a way out?

Someone mentioned, last time they had this problem, they simply reinstalled Linux and started afresh. Is this the only way out?

Thanks.

Hi,

1. this goes into technical support part of forum

2. using CD1 of your distro you can boot into rescue mode , like this :

-boot cd

-type linux-rescue press ENTER

3. fdisk -l to list partitions available

4. try to mount them one by one and see what happens

Sincerely
Robert B
