Hardware :: Unable To Mount SD Card To Fix Partition Table?

Dec 2, 2010

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.

Code:
# dmesg |grep sdb
[ 7.361926] sd 4:0:0:0: [sdb] Attached SCSI removable disk

Debian :: Unable To Create A New Partition Table And Format?

Apr 6, 2010

I have an unallocated space at the end of my hdd, which is about 10 gb. I installed Pardus on that space, but then deleted the partition to install something else (I know I did not have to delete it, I could simply install the new thing over it), i dont remember exactly how, but it was from my Debian System, not from a LiveCD.Now, I am unable to use that space. GParted gives an error and says:Warning: the kernel failed to re-read the partition tableon /dev/sda (Device or resource nusy). As a result, it may not reflect all of your changes until after reboot.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Read Partition Table (10.04)

May 1, 2010

I'm trying to install Ubuntu Linux 10.04 on my computer with following specs:

ASUS P5KR Mobo
HIS 2600XT GFX
160 GB Hitachi Harddisk (SATA)
500 GB Hitachi Harddisk (SATA) - Only for Data.

The 160 GB Harddisk is currently split into 3 main partitions: i) 200 MB created by Win7 setup.

1) Windows 7

2) Leopard OSX

3) Partition formatted in Leopard as Journal which is empty, meaning I can convert this if I want and onto which I will install Ubuntu.

My problem is that despite booting up fine, installer starting and working fine, it cannot however detect my partition table, it thinks its unallocated.

The funny thing is that I can mount the partitions and view the data but the installer however can't see it.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Boot Into New Drive - No Partition Table

Apr 2, 2010

I'm upgrading from a 250GB drive to a 500GB drive. I booted into the live-CD, ran gparted and created the necessary partitions:

/dev/sda1 ext4 /
/dev/sda2 swap
/dev/sda3 ext4 /home

then I used dd to transfer data from the old drive to the new drive. Now I am unable to boot into the new drive. I tried to boot again from the live-CD but fdisk reports that the drive has no partition table. I can still mount the devices (e.g. mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/sda3) and I can see all the files. But without a partition table, I can't set one partition to be bootable. Why doesn't gparted create a partition table? it created the filesystems just fine. how do I boot into the new disk? What do I have to do to make grub handle the new disk?

Fedora :: Gparted - Kernel Unable To Reread Partition Table On Disks

Jan 22, 2010

When I start gparted, to see if I can add extra harddisk where all my data is, I get the next error:

Code:
[root# gparted
libparted : 1.9.0

The kernel was unable to re-read the partition table on /dev/sda (Device or resource busy). This means Linux won't know anything about the modifications you made until you reboot. You should reboot your computer before doing anything with /dev/sda. I can start fedora 12 x64 amd whitout any problem. My partition layout on a single disk (80 gb sata maxtor) for the system is:
Code:
/
/home
swap

When I try to mount one of the extra disks (samsung spinpoint 1 tb, I have 4) I get to next error:
Code:
root# mount /dev/sdb1 /media/sdb1
mount: you must specify the filesystem type

If I add the option with the filesystem I get:
Code:
root# mount -t ext3 /dev/sdb1 /media/sdb1
mount: special device /dev/sdb1 does not exist

In gparted, when I select just a flag option, and deselect, press ok, the disk is forced to be reread by the program. After that I can also mount it. When I use any of the programs linked in this post, I am able to mount the disks whitout any problem. Except after a reboot, I get the same problem. SO whit each reboot, or poweroff, I need to do a re-read of the disks. The system is fedora 12 x64 for amd, installed from a live cd, the rest whit yums groupinstall, the latest kernel.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Use NTFS Partition In Windows 7 64 Bits And GPT Secondary Table Moved

May 22, 2010

I have a 6TB external eSata bay (Lacie BigQuadra). I made a GPT table with only one big ext4 partition. All was ok. I resized the ext4 partition and I created a 1TB NTFS partition. I can use it on Kubuntu but Windows 7 tell me the partition is not formated. When I go back to Kubuntu, parted tell me that the secondary GPT table is not at the end of the disk and tell me it's probably an other OS that thinks the disk is smaller that its real size. It seems Windows 7 thinks the disk size is 2 TB (and modify automaticaly the GPT table and create a secondary GPT table on the middle of the disk).

What can I do to make my NTFS partition visible in Windows 7? What can I do to prevent Windows 7 to move the secondary partition table on the middle of the disk and to modify the primary GPT table ?

General :: Unable To Mount Ubuntu Partition

May 9, 2011

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.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Mount/boot Windows Partition?

Mar 19, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Installation :: O/S Grub - Unable To Mount Win Partition

Mar 22, 2010

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?

Programming :: Startup Script Unable To Mount A Partition?

Apr 14, 2010

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.

General :: Automating USB Drive Configuration Of Partition Table, Partition And File System

Jan 26, 2011

I have tried to automate the configuration of a usb drive with not much success.

The problem that I have is that I have a large amount of usb drives that have a partition table of type "loop" and I need to change them to "msdos". The size of the drives vary and I need to use FAT32 or FAT16 file system.

I've tried various partitioning commands and gui applications but cant find one that I can give a one line command to to set the partition table, maximum partition size and file system.

Hardware :: Invalid Partition Table For Swap Partition That Moved With Gparted?

Feb 8, 2010

I was reading another thread about someone with a bad partition table and I decided to join this forum. I'm not going to take any drastic actions with the partition (/dev/sda3) in question. I am going to wait for instructions on what to do first. I am not very good with Linux and need some hand holding. System: DELL 4550 Dual-Booted with XP and Ubuntu. Works OK, just no swap. Well, here's what I did: I deleted a partition for Windows XP Pro because it was a trial, and it ran out. I then decided to slide the swap partition for the Ubuntu Linux that I dual-boot into over. (If this was successful, I was going to try expanding the root partition to take up the unused space.) I used Gparted on a CD to do this, as I figured it was safe to do.

I now cannot mount the swap space at bootup (and have to go into a backup version of the OS), although I can use Gparted in Linux to execute the "swapon" command, and it appears that it worked because I now see "swapoff" as an option on the context menu. (I actually don't even need a swap partition, except to hibernate.) If I highlight the swap partition and click on "Drive" on Gparted's menu bar and select "Create Partition Table", it will erase all data on /dev/sda, so how do I fix the bad partition table non-destructively?

Ubuntu :: Tell Kernel To Reread Partition Table While One Partition Mounted

Is there a program that will reread the partition table and update the kernel even if one of the unmodified partitions is mounted? I installed my system on one partition, then I added another with free space. Now I want to format the second partition, but the kernel doesn't know about it yet. I tried sfdisk -R /dev/sda, but it refuses while the root partition is mounted. Is there anyway I can avoid rebooting?

Software :: Cloning Partition To Different Laptop - Invalid Partition Table

Nov 19, 2009

I'm trying to clone a Linux install to a different laptop. It's made a little complicated by two facts:

1) The 'new' laptop I'm trying to copy my Linux installation to is actually older and has a smaller hard drive then the computer I'm copying from

2) The computer I'm copying from has both a windows and Linux installation; I only care about the Linux partition.

I figured I would copy only the Linux partition from my primary computer to the laptop, sense the laptop doesn't have a large enough hard drive to copy everything. So I used the DD commands to copy SDA3 (main Linux partition) from my main computer to SDA2 of my laptop. When I came back a few hours later I was surprise to find my laptop trying to reboot itself (I never turned it off). It would keep starting to reboot, failing, and restarting itself. Not too surprising sense its boot partition wasn't changed so it's trying to boot into centos when I copied a redhat partition to it.

The problem is that when I used a redhat boot disk the rescue mode was unable to find a Linux partition to mount. /dev/sda2 exists, but trying to mount it gets the complaint "No such file or directory". "fdisk -l" lists sda1 (the boot sector) and sda2. Sda2 is the correct size and reports Linux LVM for its system. But "fdisk -l /dev/sda2" gives the error message "Disk /dev/sda2 doesn't contain a valid partition table" Did I not clone the drive correctly, or was an error caused due to the boot sector not being copied yet (the laptops boot sector is smaller then my old computers, so I can't copy from old computer to laptop)? Can I salvage the laptops partition table somehow, or do I have to repeat the cloning process? And if I do have to re-clone my computer can anyone tell me what I did wrong the first time so it works this time? I don't care if I copy just the Linux partition or both windows and Linux. Even though my main computer has a larger hard drive I'm only using about half of its available space so it should be possible to copy both partitions if I could ignore the unused sections of the harddrive.

Edit: I used DD to copy a tiny part of the Linux partition from my laptop so I could look at it. Most of it is illegible binary of course, but I scrolled through till I found some text right near the beginning:

Code:

VolGroup00 {
id="F2MWxh-....-BidcLe"
seqno = 1

[code]....

So it seems that the DD command did copy everything over to the laptop, which is good to know. I noticed that it says device="/dev/sda3" right in the middle of the code I just posted. The Linux section of my original computer was SDA3 but I copied it to partition SDA2 of my laptop. So is the problem because the boot partition is for the wrong device? I don't suppose if I modified that one line to say SDA2 it would be able to load correctly? (Not that I know how I would modify the line, short of using the DD command again).
