View Full Version : [ubuntu] new 2.2.27 kernel stops pc from booting...

October 31st, 2008, 12:05 AM
I've got a few Hdd's in my computer...

4 in total... 2 which are masters on a PCI IDE controller (primary master and secondary master) with no other drives connected to that card, and 1 which is the Primary Slave using the onboard IDE. And finally the Primary Master.

3 of which have a few bad sectors and are formatted into NTFS (will be changed when I can eventually back everything up), the 1 without is the Primary Master is the one that Linux is installed on.

this was never a problem with the 2.2.24 kernel... and still isn't, as I can boot into it without a problem... (apart from a screen full of errors, but it still boots to the desktop).

However when I boot into the newer kernel I just hangs after showing all the same errors, and shows a command prompt saying "(initramfs)"...

Am I doing something wrong? Can I force it to ignore these bad sectors?

Thank you in advance for any help, it's much appreciated.

Let me know if more info is needed.
