laptop failed to wake up from suspend mode, boot failure afterwards

hi, my thinkpad t60 has devuan ascii installed along with windowsXP/freebsd. recently when i opened the lid to wake it from previous sleep state in devuan, it displayed shell instead of returning to X /WM. when i power cycle and reboot it, the machine won't boot, after thinkpad logo appears on the screen, it display a bunch of '07 07 07....' on the screen, no grub menu.

i can get into bios and change settings, i can also boot into slackware linux installed onto an external hdd, and mounted the windows partition and my /home partition on devuan.
however, i can't mount devuan root / partion, receiving error. 

bash-4.2# fdisk -l

bash-4.2# mount /dev/sda7 /mnt/tmp

any advice?

Re: laptop failed to wake up from suspend mode, boot failure afterwards

Which filesystem is Devuan installed on?

Do you have the appropriate filesystem tools package installed in the system from which you are trying to mount the Devuan partition?

Have you tried fsck?

It may be best to boot the Devuan ASCII minimal-live.iso image to ensure compatibility:

Strange enough, it seems a LILO problem to me.

From https://www.linux.org/threads/linux-lin … tup.10146/

L – First stage of the boot loader has finished and has been unable to load the second stage. This usually indicates bad BIOS parameters or bad sectors on the media or even a corruption of the boot loader. The letter is usually followed by an error code as follows:
07 – Invalid initialization – BIOS did not initialize the boot disk

devuan ascii was installed on ext4, on partition /dev/sda5, slackware was installed as ext4 on external HDD.

bash-4.2# file -sL /dev/sd*
/dev/sda:  x86 boot sector
/dev/sda1: x86 boot sector
/dev/sda2: x86 boot sector
/dev/sda3: x86 boot sector
/dev/sda4: x86 boot sector
/dev/sda5: Linux rev 1.0 ext4 filesystem data, UUID=0262b140-607c-4a24-b40b-faa1e1cd222b (extents) (64bit) (large files) (huge files)
/dev/sda6: Linux/i386 swap file (new style), version 1 (4K pages), size 323839 pages, no label, UUID=c844573e-30c1-4c64-8e7d-0857e041b5ba

running fsck from slackware (ver. 14.1) results,

bash-4.2# fsck /dev/sda5
fsck from util-linux 2.21.2
e2fsck 1.42.8 (20-Jun-2013)
/dev/sda5 has unsupported feature(s): metadata_csum
e2fsck: Get a newer version of e2fsck!

i have ascii installation image on usb drive, will that be of help?

thank you, this is very strange, did ascii corrupt my bootloader somehow?  i had 'pm-suspend'  feature working most of time on my thinkpad with devuan ascii, when it didn't work properly, i had to recycle power.  however this time it results a boot failure.

i ran built-in hdd diagnostic tool in Bios as well as 'badlocks' command from slackware, both reporting no error.

badblocks -v /dev/sda

Re: laptop failed to wake up from suspend mode, boot failure afterwards

Could be the way your bios is reading the boot instructions.  Although if it's not mounting somthing odd is happening.

I know it's a stretch but try pulling the battery out of your laptop and re-seat the ram. If you can't mount it from a live image than something went amiss while your lid was closed.

have you tried chrooting and re-installing? Or efibootmgr from a live image?

Are you using MBR boot? If so installing a new system can overwrite the old one.

Yes, run fsck from the USB drive system, the version in Slackware is not compatible.

You should also be able to mount & chroot from the USB system.

Great!  I reinstalled grub bootloader from bootable ascii USB drive onto hdd, now it boots into devuan again!
