    problem in linux partition


    yesterday i made shutdown to my pc.When I again booted then surprisingly mi got the grub error 17.so as usual I took my ubuntu live cd and tried to boot from it so that I could be able to fix grub(if there is some error)
    but live cd failed to boot into os and gave some errors like that:Buffer [355.005069]I/O error on sda 8 logical block 0
    [355.005069]ata3.00:exception emask 0*0 sact 0*0 serr 0*0 action..
    and to it there were also some unusual lines

    Also my xp is working fine.
    I dont know what to do now??

    I don't use the same OS ... but ...
    do you have another bootable CD you can try in the drive?
    can you try the live CD in another machine?

    Some thing is wrong with /dev/sda8 partition but LiveCD should not throw any error. Try any other LiveCD.
    If GRUB is throwing an error then how do you boot Windows OS?
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
