    Do as the error message says and run fsck manually. If you can't even get to a command line where you can type just reinstall the operating system of your choice and start over.

AS I said to you a while ago, the Red Hat Linux is about 10 years old, at least. It will be next to impossible to get repair parts, because they were not as well organized as now. Now they are developing a consumer market and they are doing very well. I suggested to you that I can send you the Ubuntu 9,04, which was just released in the middle of this month of May, 2009.Then, if you still liked the deall, which has aprice of US $ 00.00, I was going to send you a copy of the software with instructions. I have done a great deal of R&D with various distributions of LInux. Of all these I have a list that I can share with you. All of the items below are all Linux: Linux Mandriva 2009 Spring new edition is good, Linux Ubuntu 8.10 is good, but they just released this past may the 9.04 edition. This is what I am using right now. It seems to be unsurpassed by anything else. They have the right specs, they are free, secure, unless one would like to buy a disk for US $ 1.00. Sometimes it is necessary, if the Bootloader is difficult to install, then you can spend US $ 1.00 and avoid all the headaches.

First, upon startup, go into the BIOS configuration page. Check the list of hard disks present. If none are shown, your hard drive has died.
If the hard drive is present, and if you have an OS install CD, try booting from that, then running the disk check utility. (In Windows, select Recovery Console, then type "CHKDSK C:" on the command line (omit the quotes). In Linux, open Terminal, then type "fsck -f".
If you have questions about running the disk repair program, typing "CHKDSK /?" or "man fsck" at the command line gives you the instructions and describes the options.

It wont boot, but read corectly at bios screen, but when i try to reinstall an OS such as linux ubuntu, win xp and win 7, it says that cant find any HDD..@ linux Os, its readable but when we try to format...


I would recommend using a boot disk and run chkdsk (windows boot disk) or fsck (linux) This will help fix bad sectors if you use the correct options. USe the "/?" in windows for help and "man fsck" in linux.

Good luck and let me know how it goes.

Fsck error HELP! HELP ! HELP!


fsck is a file system error check command. Try the root password of nothing, (just the enter key), when ask for the password. Then use the fsck command to repair the file system before rebooting.
fsck - check and repair a Linux file system Try fsck with no options.
SYNOPSIS fsck [ -sACVRTNP ] [ -t fstype ] [filesys ... ] [--] [ fs-specific-options ]
DESCRIPTION fsck is used to check and optionally repair one or more Linux file systems. filesys can be a device name (e.g. /dev/hdc1, /dev/sdb2), a mount point (e.g. /, /usr, /home), or an ext2 label or UUID specifier (e.g. UUID=8868abf6-88c5-4a83-98b8-bfc24057f7bd or LABEL=root). Normally, the fsck program will try to run filesystems on different physical disk drives in parallel to reduce total amount time to check all of the filesystems.
If no filesystems are specified on the command line, and the -A option is not specified, fsck will default to checking filesystems in /etc/fstab serial. This is equivalent to the -As options.

File systerm with errors


You could be the same person I spoke to this morning. I said to him that the Red Hat Linux was too old to try and resurrect. Instead, I suggested the use of the Ubuntu Linux 9.04, which I am using in all of my computers. Unlike Microsoft where they have all secrecy and activating procedures, Linux says: "Copy your disk and give it to your friends..." I have been working with Linux for the past five (5) years and I am delighted at the performance, reliability and cost. If you buy a non- linux computer, it comes with the OS. You have to pay for antivirus, Office and for every accessory. You get the disk for US $ 00.00. The disk you receive the Linux OS, contains all the other programs your may ever need. You are even encouraged to make improvements and they will buy them off of you. I can send you a legal copy of the Ubuntu 9.04 totally free of charge, if you send me your address. I will get the necessary permision from my superiors and I will help you with any problems you may have. For now I will give you my e-mail:<arzobconst@yahoo.com>. We thank you for considering our service... 7862340692 My name is Constantin (arzconst)

How can i installed driver of sata hdd for linux red hat


if you are installing red hat 8 and higher there is no need to install extra driver because linux is the only operating system which will install everything including drivers, office suite,programming tools etc .... as far as my suggestion dnt install old versions of linux instead install new version ... there are many linux available
ex: fedora core 4,5,6 ,knoppix live cd linux ( which boots linux from cd no need install it) ,ubuntu,red hat,mandrake,suse ....
you can download it from net 4 free as linux is open source 4 all ...
be careful while installing linux especially during partitioning..... if u make a mistake you will lose all datas
