Re: jessie won't boot when fstab entries not found

Cool, thanks guys. I'll try that then report back

A quick off topic question, how do I mount the external Usb drive and make the current user able to write to the drive?

sudo mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/mydrive -o uid=pi,gid=pi

Doesnt work

Just mount, only root can write.

Re: jessie won't boot when fstab entries not found

If i get a usb keyboard, would typing Ctrl-D let me boot up the pi and then change the fstab?

Re: jessie won't boot when fstab entries not found

I'm having the same problem. I made a bad entry in /etc/fstab now it is stuck at Welcome to Emergency mode! .... screen. I don't have keyboard to plug into the RPi2, I always SSH into the Pi. How do I fix the bad entry in fstab? Can I mount the image in the SD Card on my Mac then edit fstab?
