Disaster, Please, Help ASAP.
I had a dual boot on my pc with windows xp and lubuntu linux. Then recently i had some windows errors and decided to install windows 8 instead of xp.
So after i reinstalled windows i installed grub, in order to boot my old linux like this:
sudo mount /dev/sda5 /mnt /dev/sda5 sudo mount --bind /dev /mnt/dev sudo mount --bind /proc /mnt/proc sudo mount --bind /sys /mnt/sys sudo chroot /mnt grub-install /dev/sda
And this is what fdisk -l shows:
device boot id system /dev/sda1 * 7 HPFS/NTFS Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary. /dev/sda2 7 HPFS/NTFS /dev/sda3 f w95 Ext'd (LBA) <- used to be D: disk, not yet mounted /dev/sda5 83 Linux /dev/sda6 82 Linux swap / Solaris
And this is what i get when i boot linux:
begin: running /scripts/local-premount ... resume: libgcrypt version: 1.5.0 resume: could not stat resume device file '/dev/sda7' and it says press enter to start system or something like that.
My guess is that something went wrong with swap partition. I am not an experienced linux user, so please provide as detailed instructions as possible.
