I'm randomly getting 'Continue to wait; or press S to skip mounting or M for manual recovery...' or something like that at boot ((it flashes very quickly)- If I don't press anything, I'm prompted for my password (I configured it to login with password) and the desktop loads...

I was using my 1TB hdd to dual-boot linux, windows, and for storage...Yesterday, I imaged the linux partition, and restored it to an approximately 66GB partition I created on a 150GB hdd...Besides the 66GB partition, the rest of the 150GB hdd is 'unallocated space'... That's when the above message started...Below are screenshots of the fstab and partitions as they are now...
not solved the correct way, reloaded using the backup i had the foresight to make i separated / into 3 partitions (/, /tmp, and /var) and after a lot of work (and hair pulling) i can now boot and login but i am getting these 2 errors during bootup
There was an error mounting /var/run Press S to skip M for manual recovery There was an error mounting /var/lock Press S to skip M for manual recovery
I've got the F13 LiveCD that I was able to boot and use using the "nomodeset" boot option. From the desktop I'm trying to perform an Install to Hard Drive. I've read the Install from LiveCD post regarding the creation of a /boot partition and a / root partition. I've tried creating them without the LVM group and with. But every time I appempt to install I get...
An error occurred mounting device proc as /proc: mount failed: (9, None). This is a fatal error and the install cannot continue.
Hardware is a Sager 8887 (P4, 3.06HT, 60GB HDD, Radeon 9000 graphics adapter)
I have installed Ubuntu 10.10 x64 bit edition. On booting Ubuntu wouldn't mount my partitions, so I installed pysdm to auto mount them during booting. But since then I often get during boot: Press S to skip mount or M for manual recovery. What should I do?
When I start my system up(ubuntu 10.04) it gets to "ubuntu" loading animation then displays "An error occurred while mounting 0, Press S to skip mounting or M for manual recovery". I've read many threads and tried different things but nothing seems to be working! heres my blkid output:
Havent got a clue why this started to happen recently, it says press S to skip or M to fix manually, i always skip adn everything is just fine, just would like to know why im getting this message and how to get rid of it
My linux mint while booting shows an error: An error occurred while mounting /media/6092-594B. There are two options : Press S to skip mounting or M for manual recovery. I have tried press S, but nothing happens.

I tried to install last Ubuntu distribution (11.04) in a laptop that fits setup requirements. I downloaded de Iso, burnt on cd and restart the laptop with the cd inside it.The hard disk does not have any partition, it's empty, I suppose installation gives that opcion.At the begining of the installation, before any interactivity, I get this error:
I'm emulating Ubuntu using VMWare and I've upgraded it to Maverick version. When I boot the system I get this error (below the Ubuntu logo): "an error occurred while mounting /mnt/hgfs" I have to click S to continue and the the OS seems to work well.
I am having permissions errors every time I try to mount a windows host. I have a linux server and all the windows computers can see that computer and its files, but we wanted to start backing up the linux machine to one of our other computers. so I tried to mount one of the computers. here is the sequence of events:
Code: $mount -t cifs //192.168.1.194/Admin$ /mnt/Anita-comp password: (I have no password so I left it blank) Mount error (13): Permission Denied I tried all sorts of passwords we use around the office and none of them worked.
I then decided to try mounting one of our other computers. this one looked like it worked fine. no error messages at all. (I left password blank) so I look in my filesystem and the mounted drive is not in the /mnt/Anita-comp file. What gives?
I have got a Acer Aspire 9300 which came with one of Bill Gates unreliable operating systems and a recovery partition in case something goes wrong. I surely installed linux (now on opensuse 11.4) as quickly as possible. mounting this hidden recovery partition under linux? All I can see is this from "fdisk -l"printout:
Disk /dev/sda: 120.0 GB, 120034123776 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 14593 cylinders, total 234441648 sectors Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes Disk identifier: 0x34fe34fd [Code]....
I assume that the partition in question is between blocks 0 and 2047?
Just the last day or so, I've noticed a long pause when I boot my laptop, with lots of disk activity. dmesg says:
Why would there be a 15-second pause (during which the disk is slammed) between mounting root and mounting swap? During this time I see nothing but a blank purple screen, there are no cycling dots or text scroll. Is this normal and I'm just freaking out over nothing because there's no indicator of progress? GRUB default boot options: quiet splash nomodeset video=uvesafb:mode_option=1920x1200-24,mtrr=3,scroll=ywrap vt.handoff=7

Installed new drive in notebook, connected old one with SATA/USB cable, both are encrypted disks. It detected the old drive and prompted for password in Gnome, after entering correct decrypt password, this error appeared:
Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with: mount: according to mtab, /dev/sdc1 is already mounted on / mount failed. Not sure what happened but it worked fine till last reboot. It's a 250g NTFS drive named MEDIA device /dev/sda1. why it won't mount now.
When I try to start up 9.10 I can get past GRUB but not fsck. A file check will be started but no progress will be made and finally I get the 'General error mounting filesystems'.Trying in recovery mode I get this just before the fsck check

This seems to be slightly different than the other threads I've seen discussing this issue. It just all of a sudden happened, I didn't upgrade anything or have any crashes immediately prior.
I had Ubuntu 10.04 installed entirely on my 750 gig SATA drive. Yesterday I backed up my /home and installed a 200 gig drive and reinstalled using the 200 gig drive as / and swap. The 750 gig drive was all /home. Now, whenever I reboot it comes up saying it had serious errors mounting /home and I have to reboot again to get it to boot up. I never had this issue when the 750 gig drive was running the entire show. Has anyone else run into this? S.M.A.R.T. hasn't been throwing any warnings or errors so I am at a loss as to what "serious" errors Ubuntu could be running into.
my Dad's computer was running quite slow here lately (Running Hardy Heron). I decided to go ahead and run all the software updates, and had it go ahead and update the OS as well. Well, the install went fine, but upon booting, it crashes to busy-box with the dreaded "ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uuid/########## not found error". I found that if I waited for a while, then cd'd to the by-uuid folder, this file eventually showed up. So I figured maybe if I 'exit' from there, it would boot up and find the file. Au Contrair, things get stranger! I end up with a purple screen telling "An Error Occured While Mounting /". Here's what it looks like: This is quite frustrating, I'd like to get it fixed and hopefully save the data he has on there! I remember having the by-uuid error once before after running an update I think, but can't remember how I fixed it! Feels like I just used the 'exit' trick a couple of boots and it was fine??
I have spent the summer and just got my few must-have Windows programs over to Ubuntu 11.04 (64-bit), got it customized with Docky (under Ubuntu Classic) and everything is SWEET. (But don't get me going on Unity dock). One problem: if I boot with my 1TB portable hard drive plugged in Ubuntu will recognize it. If I plug a portable drive in after the boot, I get this error below. I tried Mounting manually and with Archive Mount
