    Default Boot failure. OpenSuSE 13.1 64b cannot find /dev/mapper/pdc_cbbaifafid_part7

    I did a reset and now the system will not reboot.

    The display indicates:

    Waiting for device /dev/mapper/pdc_cbbaifafid-part7 to appear: .....
    Could not find /dev/mapper/pdc_cbbaifafid-part7.
    Want me to fall back to /dev/mapper/pdc_cbbaifafid-part7? (Y/n)

    Any ideas?

    Did you find some solution?

    That looks like a partition is no longer present or is broken

    yep. almost exactly.

    it was happened after online udate and reboot.

    system is installed on RAID and probably some updated package dealed with RAID is broken.
    partition(s) is ok, but is not visible correctly on boot.

    have anybody any ideas how to fix this issue and run system?

    Title says pdc_cbbaifafid_part7 (underscore before "part7") while in text you say pdc_cbbaifafid-part7 (minus before "part7"). I tried to simulate it in VM and I can reproduce the problem if variant with underscore is used for root name. So - what exactly do you have? Photo of screen would be helpful.

    I probably have a typo with the title or the error message listed. I wish I could have done a cut and paste. Since this is a boot problem, there is no way to actually accomplish that task.

    Since this is a boot problem, the only way to do a screen shot is with a camera and camera shots of screens typically don't look very good.

    Someone in this thread suggested that the RAID software might be broken. At one point, I thought my drive was broken. Out of curiosity, I removed one of the drives and tried rebooting. Same problem.

    My solution was to re-install the OS. Fortunately, the partition that failed contains just OS info so I didn't loose any data.

    Note below: This is not the first time I've posted this problem. The problem seems to be new to the 64 bit version of 13.1. My 32 bit version has not encountered this problem.

    I have found some solution.

    As arvidjaar sad, there problem is in "underscore" and "minus" in partition name.

    This issue is located somwhere in grub2 package.

    On reboot in grub menu I press "e" to edit menu item(s), change "underscore" to "minus" before part* of selected item and press F10 to boot.

    System was booted normaly and I change all insuffisient "underscores" to "minuses" in /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

    All changes will be lost on next grub2 configuration utility run/save untill this bag will be fixed.
    i.e. after using grub2 configuration utility make manual changes ("underscores") in /boot/grub2/grub.cfg before reboot!!!

    This issue has nothing to do with grub2. Please post your /etc/fstab and /etc/default/grub.

    This issue is reprodused only for raid.
    I am using GUI tool for Partition management - /sbin/yast2 disk

    My /etc/fstab

    /dev/disk/by-id/raid-ddf1_Main-part2 swap swap defaults 0 0
    /dev/disk/by-id/raid-ddf1_Main-part3 / ext4 acl,user_xattr 1 1
    /dev/disk/by-id/raid-ddf1_Main-part1 /boot ext4 acl,user_xattr 1 2
    /dev/disk/by-id/ata-ST3250620AS_5QE3HVDP-part1 /ext ext3 defaults 1 2
