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?

Ubuntu Installation :: Shutdown - Restart Failure - No Sound And Unable To Mount After Upgrade

Jul 22, 2010

I am using Ubuntu 10.04 on a dual-boot system with Windows 7. Yesterday I upgraded from 2.6.32-23 to 2.6.32-24. After that, pressing the shutdown button and selecting shutdown or restart (whether on the login page or after I've logged in) will only bring me back to the login page. I can shutdown or restart if I do sudo shutdown now, but I'd prefer to use the GUI. Also, there is no sound now (not a big deal, but still not good). And I can't access my storage partition (not the windows7 partition, but a third ntfs partition with data on it). I get the error message that I am unauthorized to mount. I have the only account on this computer, so I should be authorized. This one is a HUGE problem for me, because I need to be able to access my data for work. None of these were problems before the upgrade.

Oh yeah, and quickstart is not enabled. Also, if I go to Power Management, and try to alter what to do when Power Button is pressed, my only option is Ask Me. I know these have been problems/solutions to the shutdown/restart problem in the past.

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 Installation :: Mount Or Not To Mount - Can't Create A Partition

Jan 2, 2010

I've just bought a HP mini compaq laptop. The laptop doesn't have any CD/DVD "reader". So i was forced to download the .iso file to install ubuntu in addition to Windows XP that was present when i bought it. To do so i used UNetbootin, and i used my only hard disk as a live CD. But when i wanted to install ubuntu, they told me to create a partition. The problem is that i can't. I have only one partition sda1(nfst) which covers the whole stockage memory, and an empty space(8Mo). I can't acceed to any of the resizing or modifying options to edit the nfst partition. The only options are manage flags and umount. When i click on this one, they tell me : # umount /cdrom : cdrom is busy.

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.

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.

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

Ubuntu Installation :: Re-mount My / Home (which Is On A Separate Partition)?

Apr 11, 2011

I haven't been using Ubuntu for a couple of years. Yesterday I decided to fire up my ubuntu box and upgraded from 8.04 to 10.10.

The upgrade went fine, but when I boot it tells me that the /home dir cant be mounted. It allows me to Wait, Skip, or Manually mount it. If I skip I can log in and mount the partition that contains my /home folder so I know that nothing is corrupt. I'm sure my fstab just got overwritten during the upgrade, but, since its been so long, I don't recall how to (correctly) fix it back.

Cliffs:
--Upgraded from 8.04 to 10.10
--/home dir is on a separate partition & is not mounting properly
--How do I set it up so that my /home dir mounts on boot?

I'd just try messing around with fstab myself, but I really don't want to lose any data.

Ubuntu Installation :: Cannot Mount Downloaded Home Partition After Upgrade

May 6, 2010

When I had 9.10 installed I had /home and / on separate partitions but this time, I wanted them both within the same. I downloaded my old home partition to an external drive, wiped the old partitions and installed lucid but now I can't mount the drive. I am trying to use:

Code:
sudo mount -o loop -t auto /mnt/storage/home.img /mnt/oldhome/
but I get an error of wrong fs type, bad option or bad superblock.
fdisk -l shows:

Code:
Disk /mnt/storage/home.img: 0 MB, 0 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 0 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 /mnt/storage/home.img doesn't contain a valid partition table. But in nautilus it shows it as the full 23.6 gb its supposed to be?

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub: Error 17 Cannot Mount Selected Partition

Apr 19, 2011

I've tried everything to solve this, been browsing the forums for the last 2 days and no solution has worked. So I got a new netbook (Samsung n150 dated 03/2011) it had ubuntu 10.10 installed but I already use ubuntu on my macbook so I'm trying out knoppix, I booted it from usb and ran the HD installer, it gets through all that and then installs grub ok, but when I reboot I get "Error 17: Cannot mount selected partition"

Things I already tried: Grub setup (grub, root (hd0,1), setup (hd0), quit) and every variation. *I tried removing the usb and setting the HDD back to first boot in the bios and then changing the menu.lst accordingly, still I get error 17. Below is the information just after boot with the usb still plugged in and set as first boot in bios.
