Debian Installation :: Critical Bug Of "mount -t Ntfs" Cause NTFS Partition Broken
May 2, 2010
About dual boot system with winxp and lenny.
1st primary:SG 160G ATA 100
1st secondary:WD 160 ATA 133
Winxp in 1st primary.I did a fresh install of lenny on 1st secondary.
info about lenny setup:
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.
It is gnome 3, debian jessie, nautilus file manager. Click ntfs partition from file manager, type password got error:
Code: Select allUnable to access â€śalldisksda5â€ť Error mounting /dev/sda5 at /media/user1/alldisksda5: Command-line `mount -t "ntfs" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid,uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=0077,fmask=0177" "/dev/sda5" "/media/user1/alldisksda5"' exited with non-zero exit status 14: The disk contains an unclean file system (0, 0). Metadata kept in Windows cache, refused to mount. Failed to mount '/dev/sda5': Operation not permitted The NTFS partition is in an unsafe state. Please resume and shutdown Windows fully (no hibernation or fast restarting), or mount the volume read-only with the 'ro' mount option.
Why is this error? Windows has been shutdown normally. What to do?
in debian stable, what is the proper configuration to add in /etc/fstab in order to mount ntfs partitions automatically at boot time, for all users, and every user to have read, write and execute permissions ?
--- 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.
Symptom: ** after booting linux using the Rescue Mode: sh-3.2# chroot /mnt/sysimage sh-3.2# uname -r 188.8.131.52-117.fc10.i586 sh-3.2# mount -f ntfs /dev/sda1 /ntfs FATAL: Could not load /lib/modules/184.108.40.206-117.fc10.i586/modules.dep: No such file or directory ntfs-3g-mount: fuse device is missing, try 'modprobe fuse' as root sh-3.2#
* 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/220.127.116.11-117.fc10.i686' dir and *no* other dir. There is no dir as xxxx.fc10.i586.
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.
Can mount.ntfs and mount.ntfs-3g reside simultaneously?
Whilst accessing an external NTFS drive mount.ntfs takes up a lot of CPU. I am not sure if its mounting the drive using mount.ntfs or mount.ntfs-3g? How do I find out and if they coexist how do I make the default mount drive ntfs-3g?
I am doing major deployment of opensuse 313 pcs from windows to opensuse. I am having a problem that I have to keep 2 ntfs partitions intact will deleting the partition that has windows. Now everything goes well, opensuse installs but the problem is that I cannot give user full rights to ntfs folders. I have used graphical file permission methods n terminal chown n chmod methos but still permissions revert back to root.
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?
I am trying To install debian 6 with xp in dual boot after a crash during update version 10.10 to 11.04 (not enought space but no information about that ....so it's moment for change something ..) so i found unetbootin like the more simple way for my "ecodieselesecondhanddust pc" with download only iso image : debian-6.0.1a-i386-xfce+lxde-CD-1.iso without use any bash command ... after launch the usb key everything work well , except during the manual partition where i want use xp partition (ntfs) and not others choices proposed like fat ,btrfs,jfs,xfs,ex2,3 or 4..! how i can use NTFS choice and to be sure to not delete my xp partition with an other choice not appopriate to ntfs ? it's seems to add a kernel module with modprobe in bash , but i have not idea with which option exactly ?
im looking for a command for mounting an ntfs partition. what i want to do is to put that command to the "after startup applications" option. that's because that ntfs partition is my storage partition, i play steam games [win7 dualboot, thats why that partition is ntfs], download movies etc. in my places menu, its called 190GB Filesystem, and when i click it, it mounts up. but that means i have to click it everytime i boot up, because vuze can't locate the files if it isnt mounted.
by the way : /media/7C1EE4E21EE49684 when its mounted
I have a 3T hitachi hard disk partitioned by Windows 7 and formatted as NTFS that I'm unable to mount under Ubuntu 11.04. The disk is in an external enclosure connected via USB2. Windows 7 has no problems seeing the partition and mounting the drive.
ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /media/sdd7 ntfs_mst_post_read_fixup: magic: 0x00000000 size: 1024 usa_ofs: 0 usa_count: 65535: Invalid argument Record 6 has no FILE magic (0x0) Failed to open inode FILE_Bitmap: Input/output error Failed to mount '/dev/sdb1': Input/output error NTFS is either inconsistent, or there is a hardware fault, or it's a SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware. In the first case run chkdsk /f on Windows then reboot into Windows twice. The usage of the /f parameter is very important! If the device is a SoftRAID/FakeRAID then first activate it and mount a different device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g. /dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1). Please see the 'dmraid' documentation for more details.
Currently I have a dual boot system it consists of Fedora 12 and Windows Vista, at this time when I am logged into fedora 12 I can select the windows vista partition in the f12 file manager, I am than prompted for the root password and after entering the password, the drive mounts as read/write with no problem. How can I automate this mounting process so once I login as a standard user the NTFS partition mounts without any input? I would like this to auto mount without prompting for a password or having to double click on the vista partition each time.
When I click on my Vista partition under "Places" in the Fedora menus, I'm asked to enter the root password for mounting the partition. Is there a way to allow any user to mount this particular partition, to avoid the unnecessary input? The partition is not listed in /etc/fstab (fedora 12 for x86_64).
I am trying to recover some important data from a 273 gig NTFS partition that was used in windows 7. The laptop was dropped and would not boot the next day. As an external drive I could see 2 smaller partitions (30 gig and 500 meg), but the main partition was RAW and requesting to be formatted... so I came to learn about Knoppix 6.2.1 as my live boot cd and ran ddrescue to recover an almost complete image of the bad partitionddrescue -n /dev/sdc1 /media/sda1/image.img /media/sda1/logfile.logI then ran it one more time:ddrescue -r 1 /dev/sdc1 /media/sda1/image.img /media/sda1/logfile.logthe image was made with 741 errors (amounting to 160 megabytes)So Now I have my partition as image.img which I want to mount.
First I tried sudo mount -t ntfs -o loop /media/sda1/image.img /mnt/recovered sudo mount -t ntfs -o loop,force /media/sda1/image.img /mnt/recovered
I have a windows partition on my drive, and I want to access it without having to mount it first, etc. There are just two partitions, windows and Ubuntu. I am running Ubuntu 10.04.1 so I want to mount it on startup. I saw this article: [URL] but I don't know if what it describes will work as it's almost 2 years old. I'm not adverse to commands, in fact would probably prefer those.
