    10.04 Server will not boot

    I have a virtualized server running 10.04 LTS that is no longer booting. We had a number of issues with our SAN that abruptly disconnected the storage from the virtual machine infrastructure and wreaked general havoc. The issue I began with was an error:

    Target filesystem doesn't have /sbin/init

    So I checked for the particular error and found that running boot-repair would be the best course of action. So I ran boot-repair.

    When running boot repair I get an error:


    /usr/sbin/grub-probe: error: cannot find a device for / (is /dev mounted?).
    and I am also presented with a grub prompt on restart (which makes sense since boot-repair doesn't seem to be writing the boot info properly). I can access the partition from a live cd and all the data is there so I am hopeful that this can be corrected.

    The boot-repair log can be found at http://paste.ubuntu.com/5650377

    Any and all help is greatly appreciated
