OpenSUSE 10.2 - Invalid root file system error message on boot


I have a Linux box running OpenSUSE 10.2. It worked fine until I rebooted recently now I am receiving the follow error message when Linux attempts to load (after receiving the grub loader and selecting the file system).

mdadm:  no device found for /dev/md1
/dev/md1: unknown volume type
Invalid root system -- exiting to /bin/sh
sh: no job control in this shell

I have RAID 1 setup and I checked that using the mdadm command and it showed the raid volume intact.

Any help resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Any linux live CD (like ubuntu 14.04 or openSUSE 13.2) will be able to fsck ext2 filesystem used by openSUSE 10.

Used OpenSUSE 13.2 boot CD to determine the root partition (boot partition) had someone been changed from MD1 to MD127. so I modified the boot line command in GRUB from /dev/md1 to /dev/md127 and it booted fine.
