View Full Version : [ubuntu] Problem in booting of ubuntu 6.06

May 29th, 2008, 08:06 PM
Hello everyone,

I installed ubuntu 6.06 one day before but there are some problems in booting it. Every time, the booting halts at the point "Mounting root file system" in the beginning. I even tried to boot using a live CD of ubuntu 6.06 but everytime the step "Mounting root file system" is not performed with an ok tag. I have two CDs of ubuntu but the problem arises from both of them besides hard disk booting of ubuntu. Can it be due to some problem in hard disk or anything else.

Any help will be highly appreciated. I am in great need of ubuntu.

Sounds like it might be a problem with menu.lst or fstab, or filesystem error.

Type this in a terminal:

sudo fdisk -l

Find your root partition and run a filesystem check:

sudo fsck /dev/hda?

Then mount root:

sudo mkdir /mnt/ubuntu

sudo mount -t ext3 /dev/hda? /mnt/ubuntu

gksudo gedit /mnt/ubuntu/boot/grub/menu.lst

Copy and post it.

Do the same for fstab:

gksudo gedit /mnt/ubuntu/etc/fstab

If you ever get it working correctly, you might consider upgrading:
