Hi, I'd like to add this to my problem: I tried to mount the system in
rescue mode, but mount fails, the syslog says:
<4>GFS2: Unrecognized block device or mount point /dev/sda2
<4>GFS2: gfs2 mount does not exist

Further top the syslog says
<5>sda : very big device. try to use READ CAPACITY(16).

Any hints?
