hi sirs,

i face problem of hard disk error because of the power
downed during using the machine.

once the power is coming, my machine stuck at 

file system is still dirty please run fsck manually.

the partion that is dirty is /dev/ad0s2g,  a home
partion one. i did run fsck /dev/ad0s2g several times
but still get the same message.

what i decided to do was that to edit /etc/fstab and
put read only option for /dev/ad0s2g and exited a
single mode.  i got a message said that /home was not
dismount, as you see in the attachment.

up to this point, only root that can log in.  my
question is that are there any method to recover an
fsck error during boot time?

please cc to me since i do not a member of the list.

with best regards,
