My parents choose to try OpenSuse 13,2 shortly after it’s the release, on one of there really old computers, and saved some family photos on their hard drive (With Opensuse 32 bit on it).
A couple of week later, the computer had a transition into the motherboard and shorted subsequently.
Now they lost the picture on the other computer, and they would like to get those pictures out of the OpenSuse hard-disk.
The hard-disk is really old and doesn’t support SATA.
So I found an old external hard-disk which had a converter for USB and made the hard-disk up and running again.
But something is wrong, because I can’t get to the Login menu.
I’m letting the computer boot the hard-disk and enter the “openSUSE” from the first menu.
(In the first menu there are 3 options: 1. openSUSE, 2. Advance options for openSUSE, and 3. Start bootloader from a read-only snapshot.)
Now it begins to boot Opensuse, and when I press the ESC botton, I can see what’s is going on.
OK ] Started Show Plymouth Boot Screen.
OK ] Reached target Paths.
OK ] Reached target Basic System.
And that’s what I get. 1 minute later, it’s gives me really quickly a failure and it blacks out immediately.
The recovery mode from “Advance options for openSUSE” does the same.
So I tried another trick.
I booted up on a “Puppy Linux 5.0” CD and tried to get access.
But I was only able to get into one of the two partition, and the /Home was of some reason blocked. I didn’t had the right to access that part of the hard-disk.
Then I booted up on a OpenSuse 13,2 Rescue CD and tried again, this time I was not able to get into any of the two partition.
(Error mounting /dev/sda2 at /run/media/linux/e615e4a2-68d7-46a9-92fe-bb052137e53d: Command-line`mount -t “btrfs” -o “uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid” “/dev/sda2” “/run/media/linux/e615e4a2-68d7-46a9-92fe-bb052137e53d” exited with non-zero exit status 32: mount: unknown filesystem type ‘btrfs’)
I tried again later to get into the hard-disk with “Puppy Linux 5.0”, but this time I was not able to get into it at all, just like the OpenSuse 13,2 Rescue CD.
Does anyone have any idea, how to get thouse picture out of that hard-disk ?
