Re: PRIMARY BOOT DISK FAILED

Do you have a software RAID?

Re: PRIMARY BOOT DISK FAILED



Hi,


If you have a mirror disk you may boot with that and try to mount the faulty disk filesystems and recover/repair.

You may also boot thru the LINUX install CD, by typing "rescue" at linux prompt and boot...mount the filesystems from the faulty disk and recover/repair.

If it is a total H/W disk failure, then we wont be able to anything.

Regards,

Siva.
