I want to automatic mount a ntfs partition after start. I work on fstab, everything seems to be ok, but now something strange is happening: sometimes after boot, when I use fdisk, I find all the partitions as sda, sometims they seems to appear as sdb. Of course, if in fstab I have written sda and they are sdb, they will not be aoutomount... I am using fedora 14 I was expecting that allways the partitions to be sda or sdb.
I was reading this about setting up boot partition to not mount automatically. [URL]
Some users don't want their /boot partition to be mounted automatically to improve their system's security. Those people should substitute defaults with noauto. This does mean that you need to manually mount this partition every time you want to use it. Add the rules that match your partitioning scheme and append rules for your CD-ROM drive(s), and of course, if you have other partitions or drives, for those too. Now use the example below to create your /etc/fstab: how to set up a boot partition.
1- Do I have to mount each partition after each boot? Is there an automated mounting the partitions?
2- Can I have a "My computer" icon on the Desktop?
3- There's a problem that occurred just now.. Yesterday I connected to another monitor, Today, after logging in - using the laptop display -, the icons on the task bar are shifted to the left.. Here's a snap shot.
I keep a separate partition for files and folders which I absolutely need for my college work. (I do this because I had accidentally wiped my /home partition while upgrading Linux before)
Anyway, I want to know how to mount this partition at boot automatically .. I know I am supposed to append an entry to /etc/fstab but I am a lil apprehensive about doing this without a go-ahead from users here.code...
I'm trying to set up my Fedora 15 installation to automatically mount (with all privileges needed for read/write access w/o a password prompt) an ext4 partition on the same HDD. Below is the output of sudo fdisk -l.
Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders, total 312581808 sectors Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Partition table entries are not in disk order I'm trying to automount /dev/sda8, I believe. I'll check that when I've rebooted to by Ubuntu partition, 'cause that's where I know how to do it. I tried to use pysdm, since that's what I used to do the same thing in Ubuntu, but it wasn't found by the Fedora package manager.
Times like this Ubuntu makes me want to pull my hair out. When I enter my pass on the login screen, it brings up a "Could not update ICEauthority file" error and then goes to a black screen. I've tried to fix this problem for the past 2-3 hours (searching google, these forums, etc) and at this point, I just want the data off my drive so I can restart with a fresh install of Ubuntu. I used the "gsku nautilus" command to mount the disk from a Ubuntu Drive boot, but it's not letting me have access to the encrypted drive. Does anyone know of a work around for this?
I deleted a Windows 7 release candidate partition from my computer. Now when I boot into ubuntu, it still tries to mount the deleted partition and I have to hit the letter 's' to skip mounting the partition each time my system boots. Where is ubuntu getting this partition information from and what can I do to remove it?
I just now re-installed 10.04 on my box, but now I can't get back into Windows. I'm getting the BOOTMGR not found error, that I'm familiar with, but the circumstances surrounding it are completely new to me. In the past I've encountered errors from hard-shutdowns where I couldn't mount the partition, until I checked it with windows first, but I can't boot into windows at all any more. I'm pretty sure my grub is pointing to the right location:
How to mount vfat partition automatically after boot? After login it it will mount all vfat partition and the icon of those parition will be at desktop. How can it be done. udisks is installed. If i click a vfat partition from pcmanfm it prompts for password to mount.I don't want to click. It will be automatically mounted and i will get the icon of that mounted vfat partition at desktop
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.
On my tri boot system I have a 750 GB HD that is formatted with NTFS, I would like to share it between windows and linux.How can I mount it at boot up so I can access it in Ubuntu? I want to be able to set it as the default rip drive for Kino and it won't let me!
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 ?
Can i mount the partition on which windows is currently installed in (dual boot, win and ubuntu) and navigate through its folders and take files, eg. pics, songs... to place on my ubuntu desktop. Just wondering, im trying to get others used to linux enviroment and want to start transfering things wihtout making it too drastic for them. The process that i described above doesn't have to be exactly like that, but basically anything that gets me similar results.
I'm having a problem auto-mounting a new luks partition. I have crypttab and fstab entries. I already have my primary encrypted partition (root) mounting at boot (from the install), but after creating this one manually, it does not open on boot. It auto-mounts when I run the following command manually after boot: sudo luksOpen /dev/disk/by-uuid/<uuid> mycrypt
I attach a picture of my future disk partitioning,as I thought it should be. As you can see, the first two partitions are 2 different windows installations. At the end of the disk, I have specified a partition as ext3 104855 MB (sda9) and swap 8192 MB (sda. What should the the mount point of sda9 be? Should I specify a partition for /, /boot, /home, /tmp, ...etc? Or it is ok to make mount point '/'?
When I run lilo (/sbin/lilo), it messes up my /boot partition. Next time I try to mount it after running lilo, I get an error: "mount: Stale NFS file handle" (I define -t ext2). My /boot partition is ext2, mounted locally, and not nfs. Then I do fsck /dev/sda1, and I get several: Free blocks count wrong for group #0 (7665, counted=5063). Fix<y>? I say yes to all and it works normally afterwards. This happens only after I run lilo. Lilo is installed in MBR.
Here is relevant configuration: Code: root@darwin:/home/cabrilo# cat /etc/lilo.conf append=" vt.default_utf8=0" boot = /dev/sda
I recently switched from fedora 14 to 15. Today my computer suddenly shut down during an update, as I thought it overheated I decided to clean the cooling system and reapply thermal paste. However, now the system won't boot anymore ("kernel panic - not syncing : VFS: unable to mount root FS on unknown-block").
I would like to either solve this booting problem, or mount the fedora 15 filesystem and recover some files. Whichever is easier.
I have another drive with fedora 14 (antec below) which boots fine:
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?
I having a problem getting my grub loader to see one of my hard drives. I added a drive, and my grub loader lost track of where everything was. I couldn't get my old linux (Red Hat 9) so I installed SuSe on my new hard drive. But I need my be able to boot from my old hard drive because it has apps that only run on the earlier version. From /proc/partitions the old hard drive is sdd

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"
