Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I recently found the following error when I was booting Ubuntu 12.04 LTS: Disk Drive / not ready yet or not available

so I found the following commands to remount: mount -o remount, rw /

when I rebooted the computer the error was gone, however I could no longer log in to my user account

I booted the recovery mode and and accessed the root and then reentered: mount -l remount, rw /

followed by: passwd myusername enter new password: password retype: password

everything seemed to go smoothly but then when I reboot and go to login to my user account it does not load.

where should I go from here?
