When i boot linux it says line 9 is bad, this is my fstab can you see any thing wrong with it. I have an ssd hard drive. I only have one hard drive. I added the commands discard,noatime,nodiratime, I also have a macosx boot partition im using a macbook. I wanted to say every thing seems to work fine.

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
# / was on /dev/sda3 during installation

Does the error message give any more information other than just that it was on line 9? You may need to provide the exact error message if you can. Can you check logs such as dmesg to see if you can find the error. –  thomasrutter May 4 '14 at 16:18
