Where is my /dev/hda7?

by કાર્તિક

It was really bad day! I started it again with ‘linux rescue’ and it refuse to use /dev/hda7 partition to mount as root (/) with existing data! With some hesitation in mind, i simply delete the partition as there was no big important data (some BookMarks and .ssh keys were lost!) on it (Just took in CDs, some days ago!). I install Ubuntu Hoary on it, it was working fine, our System Maintainer change the battery and it was really working fine. After some time, it gaves same messages like ‘ext-fs error’ etc. My HDD is on fire! Home’s HDD wasn’t able to mount the linux’s root partition here! Bad Sectors is the possible cause? or something went wrong with my system? Don’t know 😦
