[ANSWERED] Server not booting


#1

Hello,
I have a Debian Server running proxmox and a Windows VM

When I tried rebooting my linux server it would error out while booting. This is the log I get in the console

One possible problem is that I created a 100gb image in proxmox and accidentally put it on my 50gb boot drive instead of my 150gb second drive so the boot drive is 100% full and my proxmox vm probably a bit corrupt. but thats something to worry about later. The Windows VM only used ~20gb tho

Hello,

I can see in your log files that your server is booted into the rescue shell because of your partition label dos :

>>> Found partitions on /dev/nbd0
>>> Unhandled partition label type dos ! 
>>> Rescue Shell (Busybox's /bin/sh)
>>> To continue, press 'control-D'
>>> To reboot, go to https://cloud.scaleway.com/

You can press CTRL + D to enter the rescue shell and to fix your partition layout.

Thanks, I was able to get into the rescue OS and mount my volumes (/dev/nbd0 and /dev/nbd1) without a problem

file -s /dev/nbd0

returns

/dev/nbd0: DOS/MBR boot sector

What should I do to fix my partition layout?

relevant output of fdisk -l:

Disk /dev/nbd0: 46.6 GiB, 49999998976 bytes, 97656248 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disklabel type: dos
Disk identifier: 0x00000000

to figure that problem out… you need to leave scaleway or online(.)net – thats the best solution!
