I did a NAND flash and HDD restore, the flash worked fine but the HDD restore comes up with a bad sector ... How do I recover from this?

Help Appreciated!

Do a fsck ( OK + on when switching on after having the battery out for 5 secs; power supply plugged in, option 2 and option 2)

I did that... then..

Now checking HDD1....
fsck.ext3: Bad magic number in super-block while trying to open /dev/hdc1
/dev/hd1c:
superblock could not be read or does not describe correct ext2 filesystem.

Now checking HDD2...
fsck.ext3: invalid argument while trying to open /dev/hdc2
superblock could not be read or does not describe correct ext2 filesystem.

Now checking HDD3
mount: mounting /dev/hdc3 on /hdd3 failed: Invalid Argument
Format Error!

File system errors left uncorrected.


So now what?

What did you do before the NAND restore?

Does your Zaurus boot up properly?

Did you try sudo fdisk -l to check what file system is on the HD partitions?

Maybe you can try re-partitioning / formatting and then fsck again?

need to goto single user mode then get the contents for your hdd from a post in the forums here "HDD1 Contents" then follow the instructions in the file, cant remember if its a zip or tarball. I had the same issue, its a booger to fix but its fixable. DONT DO A NAND RESTORE. This is not needed.

i think single user mode is d+b power on.

Well let's see, I attempted OpenBSD which didn't work out and then OpenZaurus which didn't quite make it, then I did the NAND flash restore which seemed to work fine then did HDD restore which came up with a sector error yet when I test the HDD it works fine.

When booting the Zaurus it says:

HDD1 Error!!

OKAY... I got the Zaurus back up and running with the HDD1 restore file from www.xlfag.com/zaurus/

Only problem is I'm in japanese now... I know there's a MCCONVERT pkg, but the above-mentioned website says I can download a file from trisoft and use that. Well, I put the file on my CF card under the Backup_Files folder.. tried to do the restore on the settings menu and it came up with a dialog (probably error since just had an ok button) and did nothing.

All I need is what to do to put the english on and I'm set... so what do I do?

Did you plug the power in? It was probably complaining about that.
