    If you had abnormal shutdowns the e2fsck could still help. Every 40 or 60 boots it runs fsck and if any issues may run it. That can slow booting by several minutes.
    Thanks OldFred. I have looked at dmesg logs but cannot figure out much, long and cryptic.

    I'll boot from usb and attempt e2fsck on unmounted drive. I'll report back when done.

    Hey oldfred,

    I tried e2fsck with both sets of parameters that you listed; it gives me an output like dmesg gave me above, and concludes with a warning that the filesystem still has errors. I think it's busted.

    Thankfully, the drive is under warranty and I have a spare I can use in the meantime just to get a working install going.
