This didn't help either. After performing the checks there were no
obvious error messages. Just a (from memory):
mountall: fsck /boot returned status 1.

Then the booting process got bogged down as usual: endless error
messages related to the hard disk.

I took another look at the logs and I noticed two recurring lines:
end_request: I/O error, dev sda, sector 200664606

end_request: I/O error, dev sda, sector 212886687

Does this tell us anything interesting? Regards
