Can someone here please help, as it's driving me round the twist.
My second hard disk (I have 3) finally gave up the ghost last night,
after weeks of struggling it's finally gone to silicon heaven. Not a
major problem as I'd copied most of the data off it.
But for some reason, when ever I try to boot I get this message:-
VFS: Mounted root (msdos file system) readonly.
Cannot open an initital console
I tried booting off a floppy, and it now says it's an ext2 fs, but
still can't find the console.
It's booting off hda - but I've just realised its hda5, an extended
partition. It's always worked fine before, why just because it cannot
access hdb can it not boot?
