Hi Experts, I need to recover my server. I rebooted it and when I select the kernel-3.14.14, I get an error :-

Same thing I get when I try to enter the recovery mode.

There is lot of stuff there in the server and I dont want to loose them. How could I recover it without any data loss.

Appreciate all your help.

Boot from a kernel that is still present or use live media to boot without relying on the installed system at all.

Booting from the exisiting kernel was throwing an error as mentioned. i booted it from LiveCD and that fixed the issue.

Thanks for all the help.

The error you mentioned was because that kernel did not exist. I meant that you should boot a different, probably older, kernel that still existed.
