I was dual-booting Ubuntu (10.10) and Windows 7. I installed Backtrack in addition to these 2, and the Ubuntu GRUB was replaced with the one from Backtrack.
Now when I boot, only Backtrack and Windows 7 are listed in GRUB. When I run fdisk from Backtrack, I see all partitions, and running a Partition Manager lists the Ubuntu partition as a Linux partition. However, the partition manager says that it is unable to read the contents of the partition, and that it is unable to re-read the partition table.
Also, the Ubuntu, Backtrack, and Linux Swap partition are all listed under the same Extended partition.
Still a novice in Ubuntu (Karmic Koala). I'm trying to mount an ext4 20GB partition of my hard drive so that i can use it to store data, i want it to appear on my desktop as well as on places, as far as i know this is achieved by mounting the partition in /media. At my first attempt i used the following commands. (i named the partition ondskapt)
Code: sudo mkdir /ondskapt sudo gedit /etc/fstab in this document i added the following at the end: /dev/sda4 /ondskapt ext4 defauts 0 0
I am unable to mount partition in ubuntu 10.04. Icons for different partitions are not coming within "Places". Every time I have to manually mount the partition or CD or DVD and manually unmount it. Seldom it shows the partition icons within Places>Computer. Then the partitions are getting mounted upon double clicking its partition-icon. But I fail to unmount the partition as it throws the error "media/partition_name is not in the fstab (and you are not root)."
Ubuntu has been complaining about swap not being ready during boot. The swap partition was showing up un-known in gparted. I booted off CD, reformatted it to swap. Error message gone but system monitor > resources shows my swap size to be 86GB (the exact size of my shared NTFS volume). gparted shows the swap partition as not 'swapped on' I am running Ubuntu 11.04 along side Windows 7 (as well as my factory restore partition) and an NTFS shared partition.My partition structure in order of location on disc.

Upon trying to boot Windows I got through the GRUB startup selections and then i get stuck at a black screen displaying "Starting Up. . ." That would be no problem, I just boot ubuntu instead and mount the partition to access the programs I'm looking for. Now I get an interesting error message:
"Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 13: ntfs_mst_post_read_fixup: magic: 0x00150000 size: 4096 usa_ofs: 0 usa_count: 1040: Invalid argument Actual VCN (0x15000011d92501) of index buffer is different from expected VCN (0x1). Failed to mount '/dev/sda1': 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 would run chkdsk in windows if I could, but that's my problem in the first place.
had a dual O/S win Vista 64bit & unbuntu 9.10 64bit.
1. Had a virus on my Win vista side, anti virus could help (virus kept replicating itself - to halt all progs from running). 2. In the End Win Vista would start & was only used Unbuntu for about 2 days. 3. Tried to repair Win Vista, but noting worked. 4. Couldn't mount Win partition through unbuntu either - needed to copy some files across. 5. Eventually formatted Win partition side & re-installed Win Vista 64bit. 6. The problem now is that the grub option to select the O/S choice isn't there, thus i can't use Linux. 6b. The computer loads only Win vista 64bit (Like there usn't a Linux) 7.Checked at the disk management prog - could see my linux space but have no access. 8. Used a live Linux cd to access linux partition, just to check - it worked. 9. how can i acccess the Linux O/S as normal?
I am running the latest debian lenny OS and with kernel 2.6.26-2-686. I have a common /data partition for both Ubuntu and Debian which is ext4 file system. I am not able to mount this volume. The error message reads "unknown filesystem type ext4". How do I fix this. I searched the net and there was a link talking about this
Is there a way I can run myProgram when desktop appears no matter if root , administrator, desktop user or an unprivileged user logs in? I actually developed a script which I set to run at startup i.e. when the Desktop appears. Script runs finely but can't mount a partition. In the script I mounted a partition using
Code: sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt &> result.txt After executing script a file named result.txt was created which contained Code: sudo: no tty present and no askpass program specified
In other words the mounting failed. If I run the script myself from the terminal using sudo ./myProgram i don't face this problem and the drive gets mounted successfully.
I have a 4gb SDHC card that has been partitioned with an ext2, linux swap, and fat 32 partition that I use in an Android phone. After I partitioned it this way, which I have done more than once with no problems, it quit mounting or being recognized by Android, Linux, or Windows. Windows can tell there is something there but can't mount it, Debian and Android just say it's not there. I need to try to fix the partition table which gparted told me was corrupt the last time gparted could see it.
I have 500GB external HDD. I have to mount it my CenOS -4.8 Machine.(kernel-126.96.36.199EL 32-bit) . External HDD partitions are ntfs file system partition. I have tried to mount ntfs partition in linux . But it's not done.
I Am Having Problem With My JFS Partition On Which Ubuntu Is Installed. It Is Not Mounting. The Bootscreen Says There Is Serious Problem With Mounting The Partition And It Does Not Load Linux. I Tried jfs_fsck -p and -a But With No Success. I Also Tried Checking For Errors Using GParted. The Logscreen Said logredo failed and unrecoverable error reading M from /dev/sda5/ CANNOT CONTINUE. Is There Any Way I Can Repair This Or Atleast Get My Data Back?
im trying to get a network setup i followed the instruction via gentoo wiki samba what i have done
then i did chmod 777 to the shared folders on both machines went into nautilus it sees the folder but it will not mount the folder showing the error msg:"unable to mount location failed to mount windows share" ive been searching unbuntu forums opensuseforums and google for an answer to this issue but as of right now anything that i have tried to do has failed and nothing seems to be working.
In Linux how do I mount a OS-X partition * by name * that is on the same host? I once used gnome-mount like this: gnome-mount -o ro -d /dev/sda2 or gnome-mount -o ro -p "Macintosh HD" But, alas, gnome-mount seems to be no more. RIP. I can do this: gvfs-mount -d /dev/sda2 (which generates a whole lot of errors but does mount the partition in the /media directory.) This is a related question: [URL]. But how do you do it by name?
one of my partition(actually its ntfs) are not detected in my Ubuntu,its say "unmounted".. here the screenshot with GParted :[URL]...(the highlighted area is the partition that i mean,/dev/sda1)
i try mount the partition(using mount -a) but i got the error message like this :
NTFS signature is missing. Failed to mount '/dev/sda1': Invalid argument The device '/dev/sda1' doesn't seem to have a valid NTFS. Maybe the wrong device is used? Or the whole disk instead of a partition (e.g. /dev/sda, not /dev/sda1)? Or the other way around?
i can't format that partition because i need to get i386 folder to get my windows back.i already try to install windows but my harddisk wont detected,it happened too to windows recovery console.there is a hidden partition,comes with the netbook,it use too get back to the factory setting with OneKeyRecovery,but it useless if the partition is messed up,thats why i need the i386 folder to get OneKeyRecovery workin again..
Toshiba Satellite Win 7 which won't boot past BIOS - left with non-blinking cursor.Hitachi hard drive partitioned into 3 part - 1.4 gb MBR / 222gb Windows C:/ 20gb HD Recovery. Unfortunately owner did not make recovery discs. Data is not critical but would be nice.
Hitachi DFT drive test utility does not see the drive - error is no controller found
Pulled Hitachi drive and placed into external USB case. Plugged into PCLinuxOS installation. Drive Spins up OK
PCLinuxOS sees and CAN mount the ntfs-3g MBR AND the HD Recovery partitions but will not mount the Windows C;/ drive partition. Google finds lots of threads about downloading ntfs-3g package to mount the partitions but this is not the problem as Linux sees and mounts the MBR and Recovery partitions.
Is the Hitachi partition table corrupted? What tools to use to fix?
what now trying to mount partition get this error this is the partition ubuntu 9.10 is installed on and upon reboot error no device with a long string. mount: can't find /dev/sda6/mnt in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
so now that I believe I've successfully mounted the partition how do I direct the bootloader to this partition /dev/sda6 on /media/11076e45-e27d-470b-bb6d-6894f7809a0c type ext4 (rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=devkit)
I'm on a machine running OSX Leopard and Ubuntu 10.04: Ubuntu is installed on a ReiserFS partition, and it's data as well.Ubuntu and OSX are installed one for disk (disk0s* OSX - disk1s* Ubuntu)I'm aware of MacFUSE and I've already used it for sshFS but now I need it to mount a ReiserFS disk: do you know how to do that?

Running PCLinuxOS 2009. I had a partition formatted with ReiserFS. I was trying to create a large file (a clone of a VirtualBox .vdi file) and it kept stopping me at 2GB, so I decided to reformat with ext3.
a) I deleted or moved all data b) sudo mkfs -V -t ext3 /dev/sda11 c) sudo e2label /dev/sda11 VDIBKP
This appeared to have worked: $ sudo blkid /dev/sda11 /dev/sda11: LABEL="VDIBKP" UUID="f80616fa-147b-4810-aa6d-3b7c236a4cfb" SEC_TYPE="ext2" TYPE="ext3"
