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

So after closing the lid one morning and heading out, I come back to my laptop running Ubuntu 12.04, and I'm booted to the grub menu, being asked to choose which kernel I would like to load. I choose the first option, informs me that I have no Kernel loaded.

I can't go back to a previous version because I never made back ups. Now this was after a few days up time, and not sure what updates where made to the Kernel, if, at all. So after research, I couldn't find any work around to loading my non existent kernel.

I've put that HDD "Hitachi 320gb" into an enclosure and have it external hooked up to another Ubuntu computer via a USB enclosure. It will not mount, and or be read. The enclosure is usb 3.0 if that makes a difference. I get a display message:

Error mounting: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so

When I go ahead and input the dmesg/tail, I don't know what to look for. So how do I make my hard drive mountable and if at all, fix the kernel problem without loosing my data?

What exact command did you use to mount the drive? Also, please include the output of dmesg | tail -n 20 just after attempting to mount. Oh, and you don't need to have made backups to load a previous kernel version. –  terdon Mar 12 at 15:18
    
Open a terminal (ctrl+alt+t) and type 'dmesg | tail'. Copy the output and paste it into your question. –  comrademike Mar 12 at 15:22
    
Thanks for the edit good sir! I was getting most of it, proabably need to try at it a couple more times. As far as the dmesg tail, what should I look for? –  kagflip Mar 15 at 20:36
    
It reads and detects that the drive is there. But won't ever mount. And not sure how to force mount even though it could be unsafe. When I run Disk internals Linux Reader on a windows machine, it lists and reads all, but takes half a day to do one percent. Seems shifty. –  kagflip Mar 16 at 19:04
