boot failure, corrupt superblock

boot goes well, kernel is loaded until 
Checking filesystems:
fsck.ext2: No such file while trying to open /dev/hdd13: /dev/hdd13

The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2
filesystem.  If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2
filesystem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock
is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock:
    e2fsck -b 8193 <device>

mke2fs -n /dev/hdd13 -->
Superblock backups stored on blocks:
        32768, 98304, 163840, 229376, 294912, 819200, 884736

 e2fsck -b 32768 /dev/hdd13 -->
e2fsck 1.34 (25-Jul-2003)
/dev/hdd13: clean, 24760/488640 files, 146386/975940 blocks

A subsequent boot of lfs fails again on corrupt superblock.
What's wrong?

LFS 5.1.1 with Slack host on /boot (hdd5) / (hdd6) /userdir (hdd7).
