I don't believe this is a Sabayon or a Linux problem, but I am hoping for an explanation.
I have a system that is dual-bootable to Win7 and Sabayon. Last time I was in Win7, I was abused by the BSOD and could hear the hard drive buzzing/vibrating in a strange manner. Subsequent to this event, the machine will not boot in the usual manner. I can boot it using a Sabayon Live DVD. I can boot it using a Win7 DVD. But here is the strange part:
If I insert the Win7 DVD and boot, I am prompted with a message something like "press any key to run the DVD......" If I do nothing, in a few moments I am greeted with the choice provided by grub, and I can boot into either Win7 or Sabayon. I guess this work-flow must allow the system to work-around a damaged area of the disk.
Can you explain this behavior to someone who really doesn't know much about the intricate details of the boot process?
I note that if I insert the Sabayon Live DVD and boot, I am not prompted with this message but instead load the DVD.
One more thing: I see the following message returned by "dmesg" in Linux:
Code: Select all
[ 20.591304] udisks-lvm-pv-e: segfault at 0 ip 0000557b73d7d069 sp 00007fff5939cb30 error 4 in udisks-lvm-pv-export[557b73d7c000+2000]
Edited to add: I should mention that the SMART Data is providing the overall assessment of "Disk is OK".
Thank you very much in advance.
