Thread: Critical System Failure

  1. #1

    Default Critical System Failure

    I was installing some new packages in the package manager when KDE suddenly froze. After a long time of waiting I decided to press the reset button. Since then I keep getting "Boot manager missing" message on bootup.

    Can this calamitous situation be rescued?

    Default Απ: Critical System Failure

    Use your installation DVD and try to repair your system.

    maybe, maybe not..

    if you have or can get a live CD, boot from it and mount your hard
    drive READ ONLY..

    then do this command

    Code:
    df -h
    fdisk -l
    cat /etc/fstab
    cat /boot/grub/menu.lst
    hopefully, the Live CD will automatically see your internet connection
    and you can use the browser and copy/paste the output back to this
    thread using the instructions here: http://goo.gl/i3wnr

    oh, and cross your fingers..
