An old machine in our office, running Ubuntu 6.06 all of a sudden will not boot up. I get the following info during boot:
Uncompressing Linux... Ok Booting the kernel mount: Mounting /root/sda1 /root failed: No such device mount: Mounting /root/dev on /dev/.static/dev failed: No such file or directory mount: Mounting /sys /root/sys failed: No such file or directory mount: Mounting /pro /root/pro failed: No such file or directory Target filesystem doesn't have /sbin/init Busybox v1.01 (debian 1:1.01-4ubuntu3) Built-in shell (ash) Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands /bin/sh: can't access tty; job control turned off #
I haven't changed anything on the system as far as I'm aware, and I ran some HD diagnostics and everything seems fine.
After Googling around, I found this thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=246895 Which seems very similar to my problem, however when I try to mount the drive with the following command:
sudo mount -t ext3 -o rw /dev/hda1 /mnt
I get the following error:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda1, missing code page or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so
I ran fdisk -l and it says the partition type is Linux.
The output after running dmesg | tail :

After running e2fsck -p /dev/sda1, I get the following info:
/dev/sda1: clean, 142449 / 9584640 files, 5402711 / 19161520 blocks
Now I'm really not sure where to go with this :x
Thank you for looking
