    Default lvm2 is stopping the boot process

    Sir I have installed Opensuse13.1 again and this time during the boot process the following messages are appearing
    1) starting activation of Lvm2 logical volumes
    2) started activation of Lvm2 logical volumes
    3) A start job is running for dev-disk-by-...../.device

    dependency failed for filesystem check on /dev/disk/by-id/ata-st...
    timed out waiting for device dev-disk-by...
    dependency failed for swap etc...

    Actually during the installation I have selected ext4 without lvm but I don't know why this is happening and finally I am unable to boot properly.

    I have checked the filesystem even no use and even I have reinstalled the grub from
    no use.

    please suggest how to stop the above process and to successfully login to my system.
    Regards,
    Rupesh.

    If the boot process mentions lvm, you indeed have lvm somewhere. You can
    verify that with "fdisk -l" and "blkid".

    Or, you have a bad entry in fstab.

    Can you boot to a Linux CD/DVD/USB?? If so please show us

    as root
    fdisk -l

    Note that is a lower case L not a one

    Yes I am able to boot into rescue mode using installation dud.

    When I run the commands fdisk -l it is showing normally.

    Well, we do want to see here that output, not that you say that they are
    normal. Please paste the output of "fdisk -l" here as requested.

    You trimmed the most important information - device name. So the only thing we know that it expected some device to appear but device was not present. Please provide exact name of device. Otherwise there is no way to verify that your /etc/fstab is indeed correct.
    I have checked the filesystem even no use and even I have reinstalled the grub from
    no use.
    This suggests that you can log into the system. Is it correct? Then you could collect some more logs that may help.

    Actually I have done all the above process in rescue mode and copied the output of commands to files using redirection and copied these files to windows system using ext2explore software and after that I have pasted the contents of these files to forums.

    While booting the OS from harddisk these messages appeared and I have wrote down them in paper and later typed into forum.

    Finally what I am trying to say is that I am unable to boot into my system.

    Rupesh.

    Had you attempted install of LVM before. The data you show has no LVM partitions noted
