After trying to use the Boot Repair software via instructions, This was the pastebin that the program gave me.


The Boot Repair program did not work or should I say did not repair anything or "change anything"

After tyring to use the live CD to manually fix grub, I am not able to mount anything in terminal.

according to the pastebin, I do not see where it has my main 40 gig SSD hard drive as being visible.

I am at a complete loss. This is a single Boot computer with two hard drives and an 8gb thumb drive.

Any help would be appreciated.

  • I failed to mention that this occurred after a simple software update. When I tried to reboot the computer after a power down I got nothing. – John Sep 12 '13 at 17:23

  • What does sudo hdparm -i /dev/sda show? – psusi Sep 12 '13 at 17:55

It looks like the drive is toast and has reverted to its factory program mode, where it claims to be a blank 128 GiB drive. You might check with the manufacturer to see if they have diagnostic tools.
