Boot Up Error - plymouth main process (217) terminated with status 2
I was minding my own business, when all of a sudden my laptop wouldn't boot up =O
I would get the following screen:
I have an older version of linux, i believe 9.04 and always refused to update anything
init: plymouth main process (217) terminated with status 2
exec: 11: mountall: Input/output error
init: mountall main process (221) terminated with status 2
init: plymouth-stop pre-start process (227) terminated with status 1
Filesystem check or mount failed.
A maintenance shell will now be started.
CONTROL-D will terminate this shell and continue booting after re-trying filesystems. Any further erros will be ignored
i found another forum post of someone who appeared to have a similar problem as me:
sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
Are there any kind and knowledgeable people out there who can help? i hope i don't lose my files :(
mount: /dev/sda1 already mounted or /mnt busy
mount: according to mtab, /dev/sda1 is mounted on /
