Debian Installation :: Critical Bug Of "mount -t Ntfs" Cause NTFS Partition Broken

May 2, 2010

About dual boot system with winxp and lenny.

Storage information:
1st primary:SG 160G ATA 100
1st secondary:WD 160 ATA 133
SATA:WD 1000
2nd primary:DVD
2nd secondary:DVD±RW

Winxp in 1st primary.I did a fresh install of lenny on 1st secondary.

info about lenny setup:
1.Partition list:/boot,/,/home,swap
2.Every partition is XFS except swap.

At the end of installion,lenny installed grub on (hd0) that is 1st primary.

Everything seems OK.Lenny runs OK.

But when I switch back to windows xp,the diskmgmt can not detect hdd's info and the system meets a problem of shutting down.

After many times of trying.
I solved the problem by the following way.
1.Boot with windows xp's install CD and use fixmbr on (hd0).
2.Boot with lenny's install DVD , do a grub>root (1,0)>setup (hd1)
After that,edit /boot/grub/menu.lst and change (hd0,0) to (hd1,0) and also (hd1,0) to (hd0,0).
3.Reboot and Press F8 for a boot menu then I can select which disk to boot.
windows boot from 1st primary's mbr,lenny boot from lenny's grub.

The problem is caused by a bug between GRUB and windows' mbr and maybe more about GRUB and XFS.

Hardware :: Ran Mkfs.vfat Over Top Ntfs Partition - Any Way To Restore Ntfs Partition Info?

Oct 12, 2010

I was attempting to format a flash drive, and well, used the wrong sdX device. I've run DiskInternals Partition Recovery tool, and all my files are still there (you have to pay $139 to have it restore the files). Is there any way using tools in linux to restore the ntfs partition/files? It was a single disk with the partition taking the entire drive. I've tried mounting it with the -t option, but it says invalid ntfs signature. Man, two lessons the hard way, make sure you backup (duh) and be careful what you type as root.

Debian :: Mount NTFS Partition At Startup?

Nov 25, 2015

I just installed Debian 8.2 (Jessie). I couldn't find the way to mount the Windows 7 partition, at installation time.

ÂżCould you tell me how can I mount NTFS partitions in order that they be mounted at boot time and can be accessed (read and write) by any user?

I know, I should edit "/etc/fstab" file. But I don´t know very well how to modify it.

And... ÂżShould I create the mount point directory, also?

Debian :: Unable To Access Ntfs Partition?

May 21, 2010

I recently formated my harddrive and instead of theld fat32 partition for windows partition I used ntfs. I am mounting this partition in /media/windows in debian linux. But it shows a cross (x) symbol above the folder and says I don't have the permission to access it. the permission on the folder is (drwx_ _ _ _ _ _ ) and it is owned by root. So I changed it to my user name -- sid by doing the followingsudo chown -R sid:sid /media/windowsHere are my questions1) Now it allows me to access the folders but all the files like pdf or photos have a cross on right top corner and it says access denied. Is this because of ntfs since with fat32 I didn't have this problem.

2) Also I have a /data (ext4) partiton which is a common partition for datafiles between Ubuntu and Debian. It has the permission -- drwxr_xr_x . I am trying to write to this partition and save files but it doesnot allow me to do it. do I have to make chmod 777 to do that?3) How do I make sure that both windows and /data partition are writable right from the beginning at the boot time.

Debian :: Hget Ntfs Partitions To Ext4fs / Partition

Aug 26, 2011

I helped with the installation and put a / filesystem of around 20 GB and a /home partition of around 50 GB. He's a gaming freak and and installed lot of games in the last few days so running out of hdd space and he asked if there was a way he could take one of the ntfs partitions out and extend the / partition filesystem from 90 GB to say 220 GB. (The NTFS partition is around 100 GB).

Now one way would be to do everything (again) from scratch and put the filesystem as an lvm, another alternative googling gave me was to use gparted Live CD and extend the / filesystem . The downer seems to be that its possible gparted would mess up other partitions and realign stuff. At least that's what few of the websites I looked up and few people I talked on IRC spoke to me.

Debian :: Using The Same NTFS Partition For Linux And Windows Files

Apr 15, 2015

I have installed Debian as a second OS alongside Win XP, and now I have Win XP on C drive (if viewed from XP), NTFS, my data files (mainly texts and graphics) on D drive (NTSF), and Debian on ext3. Debian sees and opens files on D.

1. If I read-write from-on this D partition from both OSes, is there a chance the data will be corrupted?
2. If I open a Windows-created TXT, GIF, JPG, HTML or other not-proprietary format file from Debian, edit it and save (just SAVE, not SAVE AS) - will this file remain readable from Windows?

Ubuntu Installation :: Resizing Windows Partition - Install Files On A Non Windows NTFS Partition

Jul 22, 2010

Now however its not letting me resize the Windows partition, mounted or unmounted. It currently occupies the whole disk. I would rather not reinstall the whole thing over again, but I will if I have to. Isnt there an easy way to shrink a Windows partition? I swear Ive done this before and it wasnt this hard. Could it be a problem with the Mint installer that now asks me if I want to unmount my disks before it goes into install mode? On this PC I would like to have

Windows XP
One of the E17 OSs
Puppy Linux (to create a remix)

I am probably going to put most of the linux partitions on the second laptop drive but I want to install files on a non WIndows NTFS partition.

Software :: Changing An NTFS UUID - Restore An NTFS Partition From A Backup?

Dec 25, 2010

I am trying to restore an NTFS partition from a backup and I need the new drive to have the old (dead) drive's UUID (which I recorded).I really really really cannot use the option of changing fstab to mount using a new UUID, for this case I need the old UUID that existed on the other drive.Is there some ntfs equivalent of tune2fs that'll let me change the UUID on an ntfs partition?

Debian Configuration :: Windows 7 Won't Read NTFS Partition Created By Raspberry Pi

Jan 10, 2016

I have a Western Digital 3TB USB drive connected to a Raspberry Pi 2 running Raspbian Jessie. I created an 30GB ext4 system partition and a NTFS Data partition using the remainder of the drive. I formatted the NTFS partition as follows:

sudo mkfs.ntfs -Q -L Data /dev/sda2

The drive works fine on the Pi but when I connect it to a Windows 7 pc the pc doesn't recognise the format of the Data partition and can't access it.

On the Pi I ran:
$ sudo fdisk -l /dev/sda2

Disk /dev/sda2: 2.7 TiB, 2968557453312 bytes, 724745472 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 4096 = 4096 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes

[Code] .....

Partition table entries are not in disk order.

Ubuntu Installation :: Install 9.10 To External USB HDD NTFS Partition

Jan 9, 2010

I am currently downloading Ubuntu from a torrent at: [URL]. The file will be Ubuntu-9.10-alternate-i386.iso at 689Mb. I have a dial-up connection so the download is taking a long time to complete. I understand this to be a disk image file. I am using Windows XP v5.1 (Build 2600.xpsp_sp3_gdr.090804-1435 : Service Pack 3) as the operating system on my Emachine. This computer supports booting from a USB drive in the BIOS. I also have a DVD/CD +R+W drive to burn a disk image to if needed.

In short I want to install Ubuntu on a bootable partition of a NTFS external USB hard drive.
The external hard drive is a Western Digital 320Gb USB 2.0 that came formatted as NTFS.
I plan to use "EASEUS Partition Master 4.1.1 Home Edition" to create a ~40Gb NTFS partition on this drive for the Ubuntu install and any future Linux applications that I will acquire. The larger partition will be used for Windows backup storage and as a portable drive with a number of portable windows applications.

1) Should I use another file system other than NTFS? FAT? FAT32? Something Linux?
2) What steps are required to install Ubuntu on the partition?

In addition I would like to try to run Ubuntu inside a "shell" inside Windows XP from time to time. I have software (VMware player v3.0.0-197124) that I think can accomplish this. I have the following security and utility programs running:
WinPatrol (real-time)
SpyWare Terminator (scheduled scans)
WinMem Optimizer (real-time)
ThreatFire (real-time)
PC Tools FireWall Plus (real-time)
Avast Antivirus (real-time)

3) Are any of these programs known to interfere with the installation of Ubuntu or with Ubuntu running in a shell?

Installation :: GParted (Ubuntu) Won't Create A NTFS Partition?

Mar 30, 2010

So, my GParted (Ubuntu) won't create an NTFS partition (the option is greyed out). I'm trying to create an NTFS partition to allow for a Windows 7/Ubuntu dual-boot. Everywhere I check, they suggest either creating the NTFS partition in GParted BEFORE installing Windows OR leaving it "unallocated" with the Linux partition after it.

I have tried both now, with two results:

1) GParted can't create an NTFS partition within Ubuntu 9.10.

2) On the other hand, the Windows 7 Installer says that Windows can not create a partition or find a partition when I attempt to select the "unallocated" portion.

Fedora Installation :: FC 11 Live Installer Wiped Out NTFS Partition

Aug 21, 2009

This is my first time using Fedora. My previous experience is from Ubuntu. However I want to give a try for Fedora so I went ahead to install it on my new computer. Problem is that Fedora Installer (Live CD) wiped out my NTFS Partition. Causing my computer unable to recover Vista from factory DVD because it lost system partition as well. I want to know if this is my error or a bug in installer.

Original partition setup:
220 GB - Vista System Partition (NTFS)
14 GB - Recovery Partition (NTFS)

First I resized system partition under Windows Management in Vista:
170 GB - System
50 GB - Unallocated
14 GB - Recovery

Using GParted from Ubuntu 9.04 Live CD, moved recovery to the left:
170 GB - System
14 GB - Recovery
50 GB - Unallocated

Rebooted into Vista, make sure everything is fine. Then put in FC 11 Live CD, using custom layout setup in partition, intended partition layout is:
170 GB - System (NTFS) - Primary sda1
14 GB - Recovery (NTFS) - Primary sda2
200 MB - /boot (ext3) - Primary sda3
sda4 - Extended Partition
45.8 GB - / (ext4) - sda5
4 GB - swap - sda6

After I check my setup and pressed enter, it returned with unable to format /boot error: -1. Restart FC installer, it tells me that my hard drive needs to be re-initialized. I clicked no and reboot. BIOS tells me that no OS is found. Attempting to recover from factory DVD failed, telling me that system partition is gone. I want to know did I do something wrong or is this a bug in FC installer.

Ubuntu Installation :: Windows 7 Ntfs Partition Appeared Unallocated

[URL] I used testdisk as the replies suggested recovered all my linux partition including my 2 linux distros and boot partitions, but now my windows 7 appeared as unallocated space, which is very ironic, I fixed my last problem only to have situation reversed. I recovered the mbr record from my boot partition, but because that record dose not include the ntfs partition, that partition appears as unallocated space. so how can I make that ntfs partition recognized again so I can update grub and boot to my windows 7 partition? Please help me out, I have had this partition stuck in my computer for a while doing nothing...

Ubuntu Installation :: Windows Install CD Cannot Find NTFS Partition

May 3, 2011

I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 on my Acer extensa 5620. I need to install windows and setup a dual boot on this machine. Here's what I did. I followed the instructions on this page


and resized my home partition (which is differenet from the file system partition). Anyways, I resized the partition and made a new NTFS partition. This was all done from Live CD. I then rebooted and then tried the windows installation CD. Now here my problem crops up.
Windows says that no partition is found. What have I done wrong? Any ideas? Can the drive be damaged or have I made a mistake some where? I did not specify a mount point for the new NTFS partition, does that matter?

Installation :: Editing Fstab To Allow RW Access For All Users To A NTFS Partition

Sometimes Linux just make you want to throw the PC out of the window, and get a new one with WINDOWS on it...Having only just "got" the idea that there are a nunber of ways of issuing chmod, I now find that there is yet another when in the fstab file. It is an easygoogle to find out a workaround to make this drive RW, but doing that way one does not learn what is actually do I find out UID and GID? fmask and dmask, how do I find out what the current settings mean, and what they should be to allow RW access for various groups/users or for everyone?

Fedora Installation :: Mount NTFS Partition From 10 Rescue Mode/Disk?

Mar 9, 2009

Background for the problem:

A. I have partitioned my WinXP LTop into:

--- WinXP NTFS partition
--- a vfat partition (mounted onto /fat32)
--- Installed F10 on ext3 virtual partition

B. I do not want install grub-loader in the Master Boot Record (that would loose my WinXP boot-loader for ever)

C. I have installed grub boot loader in the First Boot Sector

D. Now I have to boot using Rescue Mode, do:

1. dd if=/dev/sda2 of=/fat32/linux.bin bs=512 count=1
2. mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 /ntfs
3. cp /fat32/linux.bin /ntfs
4. modify /ntfs/c/boot.ini and introduce the statement 'c:linux.bin="Linux"'

Problem: Im not able to do step D.2 above.

** after booting linux using the Rescue Mode: sh-3.2# chroot /mnt/sysimage sh-3.2# uname -r sh-3.2# mount -f ntfs /dev/sda1 /ntfs FATAL: Could not load /lib/modules/ No such file or directory ntfs-3g-mount: fuse device is missing, try 'modprobe fuse' as root


* The rescue mode boots into i586 based kernel (I dont know what is the actual difference between i586 and i686 - will really appreciate if anyone can educate me about it). * The installation is only a i686 image and consequently there is *only* '/lib/modules/' dir and *no* other dir. There is no dir as xxxx.fc10.i586.

Fedora Installation :: Resize Of NTFS Partition On Install - No Progress Indicator On The Installer

Apr 13, 2009

I am doing a fresh install of Fedora 10 64bit on my PC. What I have done is, freshly installed Vista Home Premium 64 bit on the entire Hard Drive (680GB), then fired up the live CD and told the installer to resize sda1 (The windows partition) to about a 60:40 ratio. I intend to dual boot the system

Now the thing is, it's been running for half an hour now and there's no progress indicator on the installer so I don't know if its actually doing anything. Well there is a progress indicator but it's nonsensical, it just moves backward and forwards. The HDD indicator LED on my computer is flashing every now and again, but not constantly as I expect it to?
