Dear Sir/s,

What I mean is the system crashed where the OS is no longer booting properly. This started when I did a "partition resize".

Unfortunately, we don't have any backup of the system.

Thanks in advance for your help.

It is mentioned because RHEL4 is in extended life phase, so not EOL yet.

CentOS 4 is EOL as CentOS does not track the extended life phase of Red Hat.
