View Full Version : [ubuntu] Superblock doesn't exist?!

April 19th, 2009, 10:57 AM

i need your help. Some days ago i've put my hardware into a new tower. I started the pc, ubuntu started loading but stoped. I can't say why because my monitor says "signal out of range" during the startup.

So i used a live cd and started gparted. I have three partitions, one is the swap. Except this one all others have a small warning sign.

sudo fsck.ext3 -v -f /dev/sda1
fsck.ext3: No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/sda1

SuperBlock is not readable...
e2fsck -b 8193 <device>

So i tried to use testdisk. All partitions were found and no errors occured. I can even see all my files! TestDisk listed all super block backups and i tried to use them with the e2fsck command but it doesn't work.

Can anybody help me with that?

Now i have tried dd_rescue but it doesn't work

dd_rescue /dev/sda1 /mnt/image.dat
/dev/sda1 no such file or directory

Anybody got an idea?
