comment Issues with Xen Kernel and Debian
aha, yeah you have to unmount whatever drive to run fsck. You have several options, if the mountpoints for sda are anything but root / you can act as the root user to unmount them (e.g. /home/ can be unmounted). You can also try booting through grub to an unmounted terminal and run fsck or even boot another operating system on a flash drive, network, cd, etc.

if it's not your / directory, maybe you can unmount it first?
