comment Can't boot after disk error 12.10
In order to reinstall grub (which seems to be the issue here) I need to mount the /dev/sda1 partition, which is EXT4 and has linux in my computer. The problem is that when I run sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt I get an error as if sda1 was NTFS, but it's not! it's ext4.. I don't have Windows or any NTFS partition. The error I get: NTFS signature is missing. Failed to mount '/dev/sda1': Invalid argument The device '/dev/sda1' doesn't seem to have a valid NTFS. Maybe the wrong device is used? Or the whole disk instead of a partition (e.g. /dev/sda, not /dev/sda1)? Or the other way around?

also it might be worth mentioning that the live Cd is Ubuntu 11.10, and my disk has 12.10 installed..

just run it from live CD and got: "/usr/sbin/grub-probe: error: cannot find a device for /boot/grub (is /dev mounted?)"
