While installing Debian Wheezy, I decided to use my another HD as /home/igor/Documents/, and the system installed correctlly nothing wrong happened, but later I decided to delete that partition so I did it, so now everytime I boot system, while it's loading, an error an error stop the loading process and then ask me to enter with the "maintainer password" (root) or to press Ctrl + D to continue the loading process. The error says that there is a problem with the "file system". And a log appears on /var/log/fsck/checkfs and when you open it with nano /var/log/fsck/checkfs this message is inside:

Log of fsck -C -R -A -a

fsck.ext4: Unable to resolve 'UUID=0f0123f4-2870-42e0-ad18-de837a6d2aed'

That is the partition you have deleted. Most likely /etc/fstab still references that partition UUID so you should adjust /etc/fstab according to your new setup.
