    Wait, tell me the partition layout of your disk.
    gparted will show it to you.
    I suspect we're trying to fsck the wrong partition (swap?).

    It is the default partitioning, as created by ubuntu installer, on an ssd drive.

    Disk utility shows the main partition as dev/sda1, an `extended partition` (whatever that is) as dev/sda2 and a swap partition as dev/sda5.

    May i ask what sdb is?
    Is it an 2e HD?

    Try the fsck on /dev/sda2 i'm curious to what it'll say.

    Re: crash - lucid boots to initramfs

    Code:
    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo fsck /dev/sda2
    fsck from util-linux-ng 2.17.2
    e2fsck 1.41.11 (14-Mar-2010)
    fsck.ext2: Attempt to read block from filesystem resulted in short read while trying to open /dev/sda2
    Could this be a zero-length partition?
    sdb is a hdd where I store my data, the ssd is just for the operating system and applications.

    So do i; sda = OS sdb = DATA.

    Try running:
    Code:
    sudo usermod -a -G disk root
    sudo umount /dev/sda1
    sudo fsck /dev/sda1

    The annoying things with these kind of problems are that the system denies access to run checks on it.

    I'm afraid i can't help you.
    If your pc won't execute the commands; i'm powerless.

    Yep, unless someone else has any ideas.
