Can't boot because data drive is missing

  • My machine is booting to the point of asking for root password for maintenance, or ctl-d to continue.


    I remove a data drive which has being used to transfer out the data and the drive has now been re-formatted ntfs.


    why does the system become completing unusable for the loss of a data drive....crazy.

    how do i get it now?

  • Try this:


    Give the root password to get a root shell. Then type this command:


    update-grub

  • it's not the boot disk. it is only a data drive


    it comes up with a start job is running for the drive - which fails . then a bunch of dependency fails for the disk

    And what happens when you enter the suggested command?

  • I'll assume you rebooted the machine after running that command. Start looking around google for debian boot repair methods.

  • Try running this command:


    sudo omv-salt deploy run fstab


    If that doesn't fix it, then you will have to manually edit /etc/openmediavault/config.xml Make sure you make a backup copy of that file first.


    Find the applicable <mntent> ..... </mntent> section for the offending drive and remove it entirely.


    Then run the above command again.
