Fedora Installation :: Editing Partions For Additional Hard Disks?

Apr 30, 2009

I have three hard disks in my PC , hda is used for /, /home, /boot and swap. Everything seems to setup fine here I then have partitions sdb1 and sdc1. On the edit partion options for these hard drives I can set the mount point. I have never seen this before with the other distros I have used and usually have to mess around with fstab after install to mount these disks, so was pleased to see this option.

Under my previous install (Debian, which I didn't use for long) I had these drives mounted under /media/store1 and /media/store2. This is reflected in the "Edit Parition: /dev/s***" options where the "Original File System Label" is shown as store1 and store2 for each disk

Fedora Installation :: Editing Fstab / Disks.txt And Mounts.txt After Live CD Install?

Jan 19, 2010

I have installed Fedora 12 i686 Live to a 200 mb partition on an external drive. Before the install I created a 6.7 GB ext3 partition and a 45 GB ext3 partition. The live cd copied the image to a 200 mb partition.

partition 2bce0f9d-53a6-4ec2-b5ad-1a6915c74260 is 45 GB
partition 4683EB23BED2EB34 is 102.6 GB NTFS
partition b7240ff1-0807-42ba-e172-bff5872519ad is 6.7 GB

[code]....

Will creating an entry in fstab sdb6 and sdb8 allow the fedora distrib dvd to install to the external hd? How do I create the entries?
I have a raid0 hd with windows xp pro. When i try to shrink the partition using anaconda, I get a disk error and the comper locks up. I have to shut off the ups to reboot.

Ubuntu Installation :: Editing Fstab To Add An Additional HDD?

Sep 26, 2010

I'm attempting to add an additional HDD to my system (without having to format it). I was told that I need to edit my Fstab. I'm trying to get an internal SATA drive mounted. I'm getting these two errors when I try and mount the drive DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.

and

DBus error org.gtk.Private.RemoteVolumeMonitor.Failed: An operation is already pending

my Fstab is as follows.

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# Use 'blkid -o value -s UUID' to print the universally unique identifier
# for a device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name
# devices that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).

SUSE :: No Hard Disks Were Found For Installation

Aug 5, 2009

the hard disc has two partitions, one is 156gb ntfs, currently with windows xp prof sp2, and I am trying to install linux to the second partition, also currently ntfs.I am not a total newbie (i used fedora 10 last semester and ubuntu the semester before that). I have tried installing ubuntu9.04, fedora 10, fedora 11, and opensuse11.1 to this computer, and every time the installation probes for hard disks it comes up with zip, unless I have my external disks connected. Otherwise "No hard disks were found for the installation. Please check your hardware!"with OK button.

I also tried with gparted to see if I could find the hard disk, and still had no luck. I googled my problem and found others with similar problem but no satisfactory solution.does anybody have any idea what could be wrong and how to fix it??

Ubuntu Installation :: How I Removed RAID Metadata From Hard Disks

Oct 18, 2010

I had a couple of IDE hard disks that had previously been set up as a RAID1 array.I wanted to re-format and use them as separate independent hard disks but Ubuntu reported that they were part of a RAID array.This is how I removed that RAID metadata from the drives.With both drives connected I booted up Ubuntu 10.10 Live CD.

I checked the device names via System, Administration, Disk Utility - they were listed as /dev/sda and /dev/sdbI also noted that there was an extra device with name of /dev/md-0 which was the RAID array.Then I rebooted the PC, and checked the device names via System, Administration, Disk Utility - no more /dev/md-0 and the two drives no longer showed as part of a RAID array.

Ubuntu Installation :: Pxe Boot Doesnt Detect Hard Disks?

Feb 26, 2011

I have a fully operational PXE boot server, the client boots up and begins the setup process however, fails to detect the hard disk, I have tried with ubuntu 8.10, 9.10 and 10.10 and none of them will see my hard disk, I boot to the cd and it sees the hard disks with no problem, so apparently the pxe boot server isnt serving up the neccesary drivers or something to detect my hard disks properly. They are just IDE drives and like I said, regular cd install detects my drives just fine.So if anyone here has any information that may help shed some light on this issue I would be so grateful

SUSE :: Additional; Hard Discs For More Memory?

Mar 5, 2010

I'm still running OpenSuse 10.2. The PC has three HDD's, all mounted, but at differing positions, and all formatted Ext3.I can see and examine all 3 discs OK. Some partitions seem to contain common folders.I have run into problems of "insufficient memory" reported, but the second and third discs are very little used, having very many GB free. The memory limit seems to be on the main Desktop, which is where various downloads end up.My questions are:-1. How/where should I mount the additional HDDs so that the PC can seamlessly use this spare disc space as memory?2. What should I do to tidy up the apparent duplicate folders presently seen on the additional HDDs ?3. How can I confidently identify which HDD is in fact the main OS disk ?I am sufficiently PC-literate to understand partitioning, but a bit unskilled still at finding my way through Suse Linux.

Fedora Installation :: Installing Additional Programs To A USB?

Oct 14, 2009

I have a laptop that I want to dual boot winxp and linux. I'd like to be able to run a mythtv frontend on it so that I can watch shows in my office and not lose the screen space on my regular desktop. I was thinking of three possible directions to go. I have a question to go with each though.

1.) This machine has an existing winxp install that I don't want to mess up, but is there something on a Fedora live cd that I could use to smashing that winxp install into a smaller space and repartitioning the drive? If so, I could just do an old fashion dual boot from the harddrive.

2.) I put a live install on a usb drive. If I do that, how do I install mythfrontend and make it persistant on the usb drive?

3.) I treat a usb drive like a regular hard drive and just do a normal fedora install, assuming the install sees the usb drive as a sd? device. I guess I don't have a question with this option, but I would rather avoid it since it will take a lot more space on the usb drive.

Fedora Installation :: Install Additional Packages From DVD?

Jun 17, 2010

I've installed Fedora from the Live CD (Fedora 13). The Installation Guide says that if you install from the DVD (or, as I understand it, the five or so CDs) you get the choice of installing lots more software. I've now got a copy of the CD. But how do I use it to install the extra software it contains? The Installation Guide says use the Add/Remove Software tool. But that tries to download stuff from the Internet. Nothing about installing from the DVD.

Ubuntu Installation :: Which Disks Can Be Main Boot Disks

Mar 31, 2010

I have/had a PC with several hard drives, and a mix of ubuntu and windows on multi boot.The old boot drive died screaming, and I need to start again. (But my data is safe! yay!)

Is there anything special about which drive can be the main drive to start booting from? Or to put it another way, can I install to any of the other 3 and expect it to work, or do I need to switch them around so a different drive is on the connections for the recently dead one?

Fedora Installation :: Additional Firmware Required Killed F12?

Nov 22, 2009

While doing some basic tweaks, nautilus, panel, display etc I got a pop-up: Additional Firmware Required "to make hardware in this computer function correctly". No more detail than that. Like signing a blank check so I said "go for it". When I rebooted the display was hosed. Like the refresh rate was wrong. So off to xorg.conf to fix it. There is no xorg.conf. After four hours of searching forums and google I gave up and reinstalled (only an hour). This time I made a backup (cp -a) before letting F12 fix the non-existent problem. Tried again very carefully to be sure that what killed the display was the additional firmware. True. That kills my display. Only problem is the backup cp -a when copied back in would boot but would not let me log in!? I could boot "single" change the password, but it said that was already the password.

for me F12 is a "one-day-distro". I have multiple partitions with Ubuntu, Mandriva, SuSE, Slitaz ... My first Linux was Fedora Core 4 and I will try the next Fedora release. For now back to Ubuntu 9.04. I'm still testing 9.10. My graphics is on-board Intel. I think it's 965G chipset. This is a Dell E520N. How would I tell what not to do that firmware addition?

Hardware :: Using Old Hard Disks In New System

Nov 10, 2010

I'm going to buy a new system, and I have 2 SATA hard disks from my old system. One is installed with a Linux OS, the other with Windows Vista.For the Linux hard disk, will I be able to simply use these 2 hard disks on the new system and boot up, retaining all my data? If not, how do I transfer the data from my old hard disks to my new hard disks? My old system is faulty (no signal to monitor), so I can't just copy everything directly using, say, a portable hard disk.

General :: External Hard Disks

Mar 22, 2010

I'm using SUSE11.1, and connected to my system, a DELL 7500, a 1.5 TB Buffalo external HD. I partitioned it in 4 sectors.After connection, nmediatly the mounted disk would appear on the screen,(each partition with its respective name), and could use it as any other folder.To unmount the external Hard disk, I just ejected each partition, and had no problem. I used the same HD with my Mc, and things were all right, I used to backup automatically the Mc. However after having been using the system in this way for more than half a year, suddenly the hard disk began to rattle...and the SUSE system on the DELL, nor the Mc can mount the external hard disk any more. Thus, the partitions can not be mounted any more. When I cd to /media/ in the SUSE, the names of the partitions appear, but they seem to be empty..On the Mc, going to /Volumes/, before the problem appeared, the names of the partitions were there... but now, they are no more and the automatic back up either.So my question is, how to mount the disk, if it needs mounting... or how I can recover the partitions and the data therein... I am clueless, after two weeks trying to solve the problem..

Software :: Lilo For Two ATA Hard Disks

Jan 23, 2011

I am booting Slackware 13.0 on an X86 from a (master) ATA hard drive. I have added a second (slave) hard drive that contains an installation of Slackware 13.1. This works in so far as I can boot 13.0 from the master drive, then mount the slave drive and read and write files to it. So the hardware is basically working.What I want to do is configure lilo so I can choose to boot either 13.0 or 13.1. So far I have not gotten this to work.

Under 13.0 the slave disk appears as /dev/hdb. The root-partion for 13.1 on the slave is the first primary partion on the slave, and appears as /dev/hdb1 when viewed under 13.0. What stanza should I add to lilo.conf to make the slave 13.1 bootable?

Ubuntu Installation :: XP With Existing Setup (Partitions) - Error "Setup Did Not Find Any Hard Disks Installed On Your Computer"

Feb 18, 2010

I'm using Ubuntu 9.10 and previously had a separate partition with another distro on it. I decided to delete the other distro's home and swap partitions and install XP in place of it. I've been following these instructions: [URL] and [URL] I have gotten to the point where I am booting to the XP CD and want to install it, but I get the message, "Setup did not find any hard disks installed on your computer" when I should be getting to the screen that asks me to select a partition to install XP on. This is what my HDD looks like in GParted:

I want to install XP in the unallocated partition, but I have a feeling I screwed up somewhere along the way and probably don't fully understand the whole thing. Even if I try to format the unallocated partition to NTFS I can't make it a primary partition (I assume because it's within sda2). The very last thing I want to do is delete my Ubuntu partition and start from scratch, but if that's my last option let me know.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Could Not Mount Disks After 15 Installation?

Jul 7, 2011

I`d like to know what happens when with the disks the we include in the installation process of Fedora 15.Obviously, the HD we choose to be the system is entirely formated and reconfigured. But what about the others?hat does happen to them? I`m asking this because I have included two brand new disks of 2 TB, one of them with 900.000 files and the other empty, both of them formated with ext4, and completely functional on Fedora 14.However, after the upgrade, in the very first Fedora 15 boot, these disks disapeared from "places", and could not be mounted even via terminal. Opening the Gnome Disk Utility, I found out they had been changed to VLM (instead of ext4) and that they also lost their original lable. I am starting to be concerned because all the data there was important to me.

Ubuntu :: Format Alignment Of Hard Disks?

May 27, 2011

I thought that alignment of 4096-byte sector Advanced Format hard drives was automatically taken care of via Gparted or Disk Utility until I bought a Hitachi HTS547575A9E384 (Travelstar 5K750) and saw that Disk Utility showed my partitions to be out of alignment. I then realized that my WD, which I had bought a few months ago, probably had its jumper set to emulate a 512-byte sector legacy drive (512e) and is probably not set to the AF setting.

Straight to the problem.

I've searched many sites, some of which suggest using fdisk (others the proprietary software of the hard drive's manufacturer). It is essential that one change the arguments prior to changing the partition table as there is no way back (yet, as far as I know) without having to move data to another drive and starting all over:

General :: Using LILO Then Moving Hard Disks Around

Jun 15, 2010

A few years ago I built a small Slackware system and, for storage, I used using a 2Gb Compact Flash card plugged into the primary IDE interface. Initially, I made a bootable CD rom, booted the new system from that, copied the file system to the CF card and then ran LILO to install a boot sector on the CF 'disk' /dev/hda. That all worked well enough.

The only trouble is that the CF card, being an early one, is rather slow and so I've just bought an Innodisk 2Gb Disk-on-Module which ought to be much faster. I have plugged that into the secondary IDE interface, I've run cfdisk to make a partition, formatted it using mkreiserfs and copied all of the contents of the CF card on /dev/hda to the new device on /dev/hdc. So far, so good. But...Now I need to run LILO from the existing CF card in /dev/hda to put a boot sector on the new /dev/hdc. Then I want to move the new device from /dev/hdc and put it in /dev/hda once it's bootable.

I'm stuck to know how to configure LILO to install a new boot sector on /dev/hdc. I don't appear to be able to make LILO understand what I'm trying to do. If I change the line 'boot = /dev/hda' in lilo.conf to 'boot = /dev/hdc', LILO aborts with an error message.
