View Full Version : [ubuntu] System Recovery Help!!!

November 25th, 2008, 02:32 AM
My 8.04 Server Crashed. The Hard-disk controller failed. After replacing the controller, I can't get the system to boot. It sees the drives, but has a problem with booting up. I keep getting the message.

Grub 1.5 Loading, please wait...
Error 15

I can't seem to find any information about "Error 15". Using the 8.04 install disk I can get to a prompt in recovery console but I am completely lost at this point. What is the source of my problem? What must I do to correct it?

Thanks for any help!

Can you find the logs of your server? It will give you more information about what's going on.

It should be located in /var/log

We should be able to give you more help when we know more.

I've found this thread for you:


Apparently a parameter is missing. You should go through what they talk about. There's a lot in there.

Unfortunately, I can't seem to get there. I am very new to Ubuntu and Linux in General. I got the server working and have put a "LOT" of data on it. However, I know relatively little about working behind the scenes.

I have a console running from the CD image. I know I need to mount the partitions but I am not having any luck in doing this.
