Corrupt ext3 partition on Ubuntu laptop
Posted on 2010-09-15
I have a problem with a corrupt disk on an Ubuntu laptop. When the machine attempts to boot, GRUB throws error 24 - unable to boot when kernel not loaded (I think).
I have also tried booting from a USB stick and running fsck against the partitions, on both sda1 & 2 fsck errors asking whether this is a zero length partition.
I hope there's some other tool I can use to restore the data as there's some important stuff on this machine - this is a high priority problem so assigning maximum points.
