After a power blackout, a box doesn't start anymore but instead hangs-up as soon as lilo appears.
In case the box can be started in single-user mode, a destroyed inittab file is going to be discovered. Possibly numerous faults appear in the superblocks.
1. Start the box in single-user mode and run following commands:
mount -o remount,ro /
fsck -AT -- -yf
2. Restart the system:
If the superblock had been destroyed, the command "fsck -AT -- -yf" should fix the error.
The fsck command should as well display the "e2fs-error". If no bad blocks can be found, please run this command:
fsck -AT -- -yfc
