Re: Can't Boot or Rescue

Hi all,
If it is HP Blade or in general , Just try to replace the ctrlr or ctrlr
cache . I guess it will be ok.

Have a great time.

Got a linux server, a sysadmin accidentally pulled the power to the server

kill INIT and it dies. Tried to boot of installation CD into rescue mode,
claims there are no linux partitions available; however, if we let it go
through the beginning phase of the install, it picks up the disks and sees
the existing partitions. Because it doesn't find the partition it won't
mount /mnt/sysimage or whatever it's called, therefore, I can't run FDISK
-L. Any ideas on how to recover the partition and bring the machine back up
so I can run an FSCK on the RAID b/c I'm sure those disks are not in a great
state right now either. Thanks.
