Hello. I was using manajro xfce for a long time and suddenly it stopped to launch at all. (The manjaro logo and loading screen stuck forever, when I press “Esc”, the recovery shell is being displayed with message that device with UUID can not be mount.
I’ve tryed to chroot in my system via live cd, but there is the problem:
[manjaro manjaro]# mount /dev/sda5 /mnt/ mount: /mnt: can't read superblock on /dev/sda5. dmesg(1) may have more information after failed mount system call.
As long as the hdd is being detected by BIOS and starts to launch Manjaro itself, I think the HDD is still alive.
Here si lsblk output (/dev/sda is my HDD):
[manjaro manjaro]# lsblk NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINTS loop0 7:0 0 158.7M 1 loop /run/miso/sfs/livefs loop1 7:1 0 852.4M 1 loop /run/miso/sfs/mhwdfs loop2 7:2 0 926.3M 1 loop /run/miso/sfs/desktopfs loop3 7:3 0 653.7M 1 loop /run/miso/sfs/rootfs sda 8:0 0 931.5G 0 disk ├─sda1 8:1 0 100M 0 part └─sda5 8:5 0 930.9G 0 part sdb 8:16 1 58.6G 0 disk /run/miso/bootmnt ├─sdb1 8:17 1 2.6G 0 part └─sdb2 8:18 1 4M 0 part
fsck and other recover utilites return me an error that superblock can not be read, and also, sda1 and sda5 are dissapearing from lsblk output and there is no HDD size on it.
How can I make sure that my HDD is still alive and resolve the issue?
