I dont know my partition scheme, so i decided to try to boot a Kubuntu live DVD i had lying around and check it out.Error 17: Cannot mount selected partition
While booting it gives me this error (and similar ones several times)
I think to myself, "this looks like a job for system rescue CD" and it loads to the point sayingBuffer i/0 error on device sr0, logical block 279335
SQUASHFS error: unable to read fragment cache block
SQUASHFS error: unable to read page
and freezes there.ISOLINUX version
I have windows installed on this as well and it boots. I really need the data on my linux partition, but if the filesystem is messed up and i install the ext2 windows driver even worse things could happen to my data.
Any idea on the problem, i'm about to look for a utility to check for bad blocks that i will be able to use (i used scandisk, but dont put any faith in it anyway).
I'm thinking maybe its a filesystem problem, but then i dont know why my bootable DVD does not work.
