Trying to mount /home on a second drive - working before - not working now

So, I had to reinstall the other day and for years I have run / on my SSD and /home has been on a separate HDD.

For some reason, I now can’t mount my /home and the boot fails. This is my fstab

# /dev/sdb2
UUID=6ba343b4-c0be-4511-90f3-cd870a988bfa	/         	ext4     rw,relatime	0 1

# /dev/sdb1
UUID=2547-6C95      						/boot     	vfat     defaults	0 2

# /dev/sdd1
UUID=0fe1cbc5-da0d-4e2f-8457-2a858bb78a1e /home 		ext4 defaults,noatime 0 2

# Music
UUID=19fb7c03-e065-4b28-bb2f-19fca9a64b0a	/run/media/dobbie/Music    ext4 	rw 0 0

Nothing has changed since the previous install except that /boot formatted as vfat. All the UUID’s match. I’m not quite sure what is going on.


That’s the error I am getting at boot then it drops me into an emergency shell.

Any help or advice is appreciated.

So I ran sudo fsck -f /dev/sdd1 and this corrected some issues with the drive. All working as it should be now.


Cool, was that because it was formatted as vfat! Nothing special was done beside it !

No my system wouldn’t reboot beyond the MoBo splash so I did a reinstall. It seems it just need a realignment.

Oh, thx for the comeback @Dobbie03
