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.
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.
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 have 500GB external HDD. I have to mount it my CenOS -4.8 Machine.(kernel-22.214.171.124EL 32-bit) . External HDD partitions are ntfs file system partition. I have tried to mount ntfs partition in linux . But it's not done.
--- 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 126.96.36.199-117.fc10.i586 sh-3.2# mount -f ntfs /dev/sda1 /ntfs FATAL: Could not load /lib/modules/188.8.131.52-117.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/184.108.40.206-117.fc10.i686' dir and *no* other dir. There is no dir as xxxx.fc10.i586.
On my laptop I have Windows and Ubuntu, and I use Ubuntu very often. How can I auto-mount the NTFS partitions once I run my Ubuntu without the need to manually ask to mount it and confirm with the root password each time and for each partition?
I use Ubuntu 11.04 (gnome) and have a ntfs partiton that shows up in the "places" menu that is normally in the gnome panel. But I think that partition isn't mounted till I click on the entry in this menu (when I want to access it from any other place, shortcuts for example, that doesn't work). How can I correctly mount all partitions I want on startup? Recently I tried something in the /etc/fstab file but don't know if this is correct...
Nautilus mounts NTFS partitions when I acces them, and before mounting, it asks for root password. Is there a method to auto-mount ntfs partitions on Debian startup, without requiring root password each time they are automatically mounted ? And without installing additional packages.
Have a 1TB external USB hard drive I want to use on both Windows and Linux (Mythbuntu 9.10), so I thought the easiest way would be to format it with NTFS. Installed the NTFS-3G package and I'm able to read and write to the drive fine from Linux, however I have a few questions;
1) How do I configure Linux so that when it mounts the NTFS partition it is writeable for user, group and other (bascially I want everyone to have read and write access)? Currently when the NTFS disk is mounted the permissions are restricted to the user only and I suspect I'll need to edit fstab for this, but don't have much experience here so need help with the specifics.
2) If my Linux PC is turned on with the external drive attached, the disk is not mounted until I double click on the icon on the desktop. Is there anyway I can configure Linux so that it will automatically mount the external disk when booting?
Below is what is in my fstab file at present;
# /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # -- This file has been automaticly generated by ntfs-config -- # # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
I have a dual boot setup with a fair amount of files in my windows volume. I noticed that the Ubuntu 10.4 GNOME version (at least) does not auto mount my NTFS drive. Of course as I have seen from various post this gets annoying when opening up a program that loads previous files before I for ex, click the '110GB FileSystem' icon from Nautilus or similar...that seems to mount it for me then... I want my 110GB NTFS volume to mount automatically so I dont have to do this process everytime I reboot.
I found a post on the forum (the latest one I could find) below that recommends installing ntfs-config. The post is from May 2008 but mentions 10.10 (via edits) so I'm confused and wondering if there is an easier/default way..or this is still the way to go? After several screw ups editing system files manually, Im very cautious about doing it in this case because its a work computer and frankly the uninsttall or editing the fstab manually worries me.
I have successfully mounted my Win7 volume and my external hard drives NTFS volume as well. However, after modifying the fstab I seem to only be getting the win7 volume to auto-mount. Below is the contents of my fstab. /dev/sdf3 is not mounting. Again, it works no problem if I manually mount it.
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.
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.
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
