    Linux won't boot, bad harddrive


    My Linux box crashed a few days ago, because of a power failure. This box has about 8 drives. On restart, Linux got stuck in the bootup at:
    "fsck: No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-/AMCC-Ak811..."
    "fsck failed for at least one file system (not /)"
    "Give root password for login"

    I lost a drive, so I rebooted, replaced the drive, fixed the bios and booted Linux. Linux got stuck with the same failure, same place.
    I gave the root password, init 5, entered YAST Partitioner, removed references to the dead drive, formatted the new drive, corrected everything, mounted the drives and everything seemed fine.

    But when I had to reboot the machine, it got stuck at the same place in reboot ""fsck failed for at least one file system (not /)", giving the id of the dead (and removed) drive. I have neglected to remove a reference to the dead drive from somewhere that bootup fsck is checking.

    Help.

    Check the uuid for your partitions, should work with the blkid command. Then see which partition that is. The check your grub.cfg file (if you have grub2) and your /etc/fstab file to see that the correcti id is present.

    FIXED!

    The dead/removed drive was still in the fstab file.
    Thank you for your help!

    Sincerely
