Ubuntu :: Hard Disk Backup Using Live CD?

Jun 8, 2010

I'm using a dell XPS M1530 laptop with windows vista and ubuntu 10.04. Last week when I turned on my laptop I got an error saying internal hard disk not found. When I called dell support, I have been told that my hard disk is dead. I have few important stuffs in my hard disk for which I don't have any back. So I tried using ubuntu live CD to back up my data as in the link below.[URL]..I'm using ubuntu 10.04 live CD(64 bit). When I go to my places after booting from the live CD I can't see any partition showing my hard disk. I can see "Computer". When I go in it I can only see "File System" and nothing related to my partitions in my HDD. What should I do now? Do I need to mount my hard disk or is my HDD completely dead?

Ubuntu :: Partition Hard Disk From Live CD

Sep 28, 2010

When I installed Lucid several months ago, I went ahead and let Ubuntu use the entire disk. Since then I have learned more about partitions and came to realize that I didn't have a separate /home partition, meaning that clean installs of new Ubuntu releases would wipe my data. I would like to carve my hard drive up from the LiveCD environment while preserving my current data and Lucid installation.

Software :: Grub (Hard Disk Error) How To Rectify From Live CD

Jan 29, 2010

I've a dual installation, ubuntu and XP and I've suddenly got a problem when I boot it gives the error "GRUB: Hard Disk Error", Tried to boot from Ubuntu live CD but I don't know how to correct grub from there. How can I correct the problem, maybe which live disk is better to correct such errors?

Consulted similar threads but couldn't find a solution for my problem as I'm booting from livecd and others were giving solution as if one can directly access the installation on hard disk, but whenever I try with ubuntu livecd it access live installation.

Ubuntu :: Access A File System On A Hard Drive From A Live CD?

Feb 7, 2010

What i really need to know is if there is a way to access a Ubuntu file system on a hard drive from a live CD. When i acess it now it just shows the Windows files on it, and i cant access the Ubuntu partition. What happened was this: I was trying to install Ubuntu on an external hard drive. I moved all the settings to the Hard drive so i didnt think it would affect my other drives. I mustve missed one of them because insteading of loading GRUB like it normally does, it came up with GRUB error 21 and did nothing. I tried to fix it, but nothing worked. I finally decided to unplug everything except the external and install it from there, so id atleast have a functioning desktop. As it turns out, my comp doesnt suport USB booting. So the only way i can use my computer is by Live CD. I was trying to fix things so i had both hard drives power supply unplugged. being slightly drowsy from staying up late that night, I plugged them in while my computer was on. the first one went in just fine, no problems. The second one though, also my master drive, i was having troubles pluging in. while i was turning it to fit in, it made a big spark and shocked my master drive. That drive had my MBR and Windows on it. Now It cant find a MBR, and i cant access the ubuntu partition on my slave drive. Is there any way to save this?? im 99.9% sure ive screwed myself over hardcore epically, but im hoping to save at least 1/2 my data.

Ubuntu Security :: Access Encrypted Hard Drive Via Live Usb?

May 17, 2011

I want to access my hard drive to copy over my old documents. So I boot into a LiveUSB, mount my ubuntu partition, and then cd to my home directory, but I can't open it. I get "permission denied." I encrypted my whole home directory and know the password, but how do I "decrypt" it or login as the partition's root so I can access the documents that way. I'm booted into the USB, but can't access the home directory. I get "You do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of 'jake'".

Debian Installation :: Get Grub2 To Boot A Live System From Hard Disk

May 8, 2011

I have been frustrated attempting to get Grub2 to boot a Debian Live system from hard disk. Have set aside a 4gb partition /dev/sda1 to contain the Debian Live and some other recovery tools. I actually have them all working from a 4gb USB stick successfully, but getting it to work on my HDD has proved challenging. On USB, I have PartedMagic, Gparted, Grml, and of course my standard 6.01 Squeeze. I have also managed to get the Debian Live booting from that USB stick. Very slick.

However, I can NOT get Debian Live to boot from my HDD; altho all of the others above boot fine. Have tried it two ways - one using an iSO image, which is how it is done on my USB stick. The other attempt is to copy the entire contents of the ISO to a directory.

Here are my directory structures:

debian_live_gnome_squeeze_i386- contains the following: debian-live-6.0.1-i386-gnome-desktop.iso initrd.gz initrd.img vmlinuz which is how it is laid out on my USB stick debian_live - contains the files from the ISO image The error I get is something like "panic unable to find live filesystem" My grub.cfg snippet for the two methods I have tried - the 2nd menuentry is similar to how it works on the USB stick.

menuentry "Debian 6.01 Live (on /dev/sda1)" {
insmod part_msdos
insmod ext2
set root=(hd0,msdos1)

[code]....

Probly don't really need to get it working since PartedMagic can do almost everything I need for recovery and I can use the USB for reinstall or whatever else.

Fedora Installation :: Access Hard Drive From Live USB?

I've installed F10-live.iso onto a usb key but am having problems with the non-privileged user I created. When I login as kurt, I do not have access to my home directory on the hard drive. I tried [root@localhost home] #chmod kurt kurt (after cd-ing to the correct spot), but still cannot access my files there. I can do so as Live System User, but not as me.

Debian Hardware :: Missing Disk \ Cannot Access It During The Live Usb?

Aug 11, 2011

I do not have the machine personally but a friend of mine says her netbook with Linux detects the disk in the bios, but can not access it during the live usb. (but it worked previously). I have confirmed this with fdisk as fdisk detects the other devices as /dev/sdb and /dev/sdc, so it knows there is supposed to be a /dev/sda, but it is not there.

General :: Damaged Hard Disk Doesn't Pass SMART Test, And , Won't Boot With It Connected, Even From A Live CD?

Sep 19, 2010

Its basically an old SATA Hard Drive with a Windows XP partition I was trying to sell.When my computer does the BIOS checks, it doesn't pass the SMART test (but I can boot it anyway), although I can't boot Linux in any way with this Hard Disk connected (I even tried Live CD distros, like Parted Magic).I can boot the XP partition from inside the disk, although I guess its pretty close to not being able to. Is there any way to "fix" this Hard Drive?

Ubuntu :: Copy Files From Hard Drive With Live CD?

Mar 14, 2011

I'm mostly a linux-idiot but I tried to get an update for a laptop that was running xubuntu. Anyway, it won't boot and instead takes me to a screen where it says "press s to skip mounting, or press m to recover manually" or something like that. I've pressed S, and then it tells me that it can't find /tmp or something, and I have to turn it off and back on to do anything. Pressing M doesn't help much either... at least not for a mostly-linux-idiot like me. I would do a clean install, but there are a few files I absolutely have to have from the hard drive. recover the files I need from my hard drive to a usb drive while using a Live CD?

Ubuntu :: Code To Access Hard Disk Sectors (LoopBack Device)

Jan 26, 2011

I'm kind of new to programming in Linux & c/c++. I'm currently writing a FileManager using Ubuntu Linux(10.10) for Learning Purposes. I've got started on this project by creating a loopback device to be used as my virtual hard disk. After creating the loop back hard disk and mounting it has the following configuration.

Code: $> sudo fdisk -l /dev/loop0
Disk /dev/loop0: 10 MB, 10977280 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 1 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x00000000

Disk /dev/loop0 doesn't contain a valid partition table Now what I want to do is develop a c++ program to read & write files to this loop back device,which I'm using to simulate an actual hard disk,at the blocks & sectors level. So far I've come up with the following code. But I'm still unable to read files from the hard disk one block at a time.

Code: #include <iostream>
#include <stdio.h>
using namespace std;
int main() {
char block[512]; int length=0;
cout<<"Implementation of the File Handler Read Method..."<<endl;
FILE *f = fopen("/dev/loop0", "r");
if(f == NULL) {
cout<<"Error In Opening the HardDisk File Retuning Error..."<<endl; return -1; }
//Read One Block of Data to Buffer length = fread(block, 1, sizeof(block), f);
/* Do something with the data */ cout<<"Length : "<<length<<endl;
return 0; }

When I run this Program All what I get is the message for NULL. "Error In Opening the HardDisk File Retuning Error...". So I could open the loopback device as a file an access it at the sectors & block level.
