Thread: Root HD Not Being Detected After Installation

    Default Root HD Not Being Detected After Installation

    I just installed 11.4 and I get an error when I try to boot, "fsck failed for at least one filesystem". It's referring to sdc2, which is my /. This drive is a 1.5gb SATA drive, and it may be that this drive is very slow to initialize. I used to have a problem in Windows where this same drive wouldn't be detected after waking from sleep, so I had to apply a hotfix patch.

    I tried manually fsck-ing, but the drive isn't detected at all. Any ideas? Maybe some way I can make it wait longer for the drive?

    Honestly, this simply shouldn't happen.
    Try booting Parted Magic CD and use the Partition editor to check the partitions

    While you're booted by Parted Magic run fsck on the / hdd.
