I have accidentally deleted my boot partition. OS is Debian Jessie with LUKS LVM. I have created a new partition and successfully reinstalled grub with the chroot method.
Now when I try to boot, my root partition cannot be found.
I get the following error message and then prompts to initramfs.
Gave up waiting for root device. Common problems:
Boot args (cat /proc/cmdline )
Check root delay = (did the system wait long enough)
Check root= (did the system wait for the right device?)
Missing modules (cat /proc/modules; ls /dev)
ALERT! /dev/mapper/vg--mypc-root does not exist.
Dropping to shell!
modprobe: module ehci-orion not found in modules.dep
I found this link. Maybe it is the same problem.
I have done the following things:
cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sda5 mylvm
/dev/mapper/mylvm [ 178,33 GiB] LVM physical volume
/dev/sda1 [ 243,00 MiB]
/dev/sda5 [ 178,33 GiB]
2 logical volume(s) in volume group "mypc-vg" now active
ACTIVE '/dev/mypc-vg/root' [178,33 GiB] inherit
ACTIVE '/dev/mypc-vg/swap_1' [9,08 GiB] inherit
mount /dev/mypc-vg/root /mnt
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/boot
mount --bind /dev /mnt/dev
mount --bind /dev/pts /mnt/dev/pts
mount --bind /proc /mnt/proc
mount --bind /sys /mnt/sys
aptitude reinstall grub2-common grub-pc-bin grub-gfxpayload-lists grub-common
aptitude reinstall linux-image-3.16.0-4-amd64
I also have reinstalled lvm2 in chroot environment without effect. update-grub and grub-install give no errors but during booting, but it still prompts to initramfs console.
Then I tried to copy all *.deb files from livecd to chroot'ed /tmp folder and run
dpkg -i *deb to install all packages to the filesystem. This had also no effect. Was found here.
Now I don't know what to do next. I think I am going in the wrong direction.
