exception emask 0x0 sact 0x0 serr 0x0 action 0x0

The following error might occur while the system boots.

exception emask 0x0 sact 0x0 serr 0x0 action 0x0

To get around this we will need a live cd or a bootable usb. We can create a bootable usb using unetbootin. After booting using the live cd or the bootable usb, open a terminal and run the command

$ sudo fdisk -l /dev/sda1 1 6713 53914624 83 Linux

This will list all the disks available in the system. Choose the on in which linux is installed, assume it to be /dev/sda1. Now run the command

$ fsck /dev/sda1

Answer yes for any repair related uestions thrown during the system check.

Once the check is over, reboot the system and try booting back into the ususal system. The error should no longer appear .
