I was running 11.0 and it stalled in the middle of a number of updates. On reboot I now get (if I remember correctly) Error 15: File not found.
I managed to get my hands on a 11.0 live cd and started trying to fix grub. However, when I try mounting the harddrive using “mount /dev/sda1” I got
can`t find sda1 in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
“mount /dev/sda1 /mnt” gives
modprobe: Warning: error inserting mbcache
FATAL: error inserting ext3
mount: unknown filesystem type ext3
trying fsck gives
fsck.ext3: Exec format error
I`m relativly inexperienced in bash and these sorts of problems, and so have no idea what to try next or even if the system is fixable.
This appears to be a file system error. The repair function on the install disk may be able to shed more light. But I suspect that since the partition is not being recognized there is possible hardware problems. You might try a scan app from the drive maker to see if it can be recovered.
Please try Parted Magic.

If you get your partition/s mounted, get your important data off it.
ve been assuming that its a file problem. Strangly enough I havent been able to find the repair function on the disk (11.0 KDE). It doesn
t appear in the initial boot screen, and I didnt see an option when I opened the install program while running the os from the cd.
I think it is first install then the repair option.
It is like pressing the start button to shutdown in Windoz
But gparted may be the better way to go. There are a lot more options and diagnoses stuff. And this is much more serious then a lost file.
Soundfs like the Live CD. If it is: there’s no repair function on the Live CD (jonly on the DVD).
