mountall: Filesystem could not be mounted: /media/biblioMD
An error occurred while mounting /media/biblioMD
Press S to Skip or M for manual recovery

If I press S and mount on GUI it´s works.

Is the Media / disk in when you are booting?

There may be a booting order issue.  If it is for CD/DVD, the drivers may not be up when it tries to mount.

The other issue may be that there is some error in the paths.


Yes, Its one SATA HD.


in etc/fstab I have :
/dev/sdc1 /media/biblioMD defaults ext3 defaults
Try using
/dev/sdc1 /media/biblioMD ext3    defaults    0  0

Your entry looks a little strange.  Are all the other entries the same way?

Second, when you do it through GUI, is it always /dev/sdc1 that is mounted?  When you mount with GUI, the issue a command

mount | grep media


Nothing yet. Here´s my /etc/fstab:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid -o value -s UUID' to print the universally unique identifier
# for a device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name
# devices that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
proc            /proc           proc    nodev,noexec,nosuid 0       0
/dev/mapper/sbaubuntusr10-root /               ext4    errors=remount-ro 0     $
# /boot was on /dev/sda1 during installation
UUID=d67374ba-40c1-4e9e-be84-c3736bb83643 /boot           ext2    defaults     $

/dev/sdc1      /media/biblioMD     ext3    defaults 0 0

After mount with GUI

admsmd@sbaubuntusr10:~$ df

Issue command

df -hT after it is mounted

What is your run level?  May be 5.

Then issue command

ls /etc/rc.d/rc5.d

Or do ls on whatever the correct path for rc5.d folder is.
