Ubuntu :: Can't Mount Ntfs Partition Located On Other Hard-drive?
Dec 19, 2010
Does someone know how to reconfigure this? I have three hard drives.
1. Sata 1TB. It has Windows xp and ubuntu 10.10 on it
2. old 30G drive. It has ubuntu 10.04 on it
3. Old 120G with ubuntu 10.04
I installed the oses on each drive by disconnecting the others. So each drive has a boot record, and I can choose by pressing F11 at boot. All ubuntus can see and mount the NTFS partition except the one I installed last. It's on the 120G drive.
I have two 1TB HDD's formatted in NTFS, one has windows and other stuff i use even on linux and the other is all media. i can mount them easy, but this is a minor annoyance because everytime i log in i must type in my password. is there no way to have them auto mounted on startup?

I am trying to mount an external USB hard drive. I'm using Debian Lenny 5. I tried to right-click on the hard drive and then select the mount command inside the gnome desktop environment but it gives me an error. Is there an easy way to mount and unmount this hard drive? The hard drive itself is formatted from the factory in NTFS. I'm going to leave it in this file format is a need to use it with Windows machines as well.
Just installed opensuse 11.3 Kdeversion on my laptop. Before installing it on live mode i had a problem of accessing my other drives (NTFS, FAT32 and EXT4) which said HAL system policy...etc mounting error. I could access all drives with root privilege. I thought problem will be solver once i install opensuse on my system. How ever i was really disappointed after seeing the same problem post install. Googled around for the solution and got this link
After this the problem got worse now i am not able to see any of the drives in the side panel. Gone through many forum and posts all discuss about external USB HDD.
Been using a SeaGate FreeAgent external drive for past 6 months. Suddenly the ext2 partition (/dev/sdb2) won't mount, while the NTFS partition (/dev/sdb1) does.I've been allowing automount, no entry in /etc/ fstab.When the NTSF partition mounts there appears an entry
I am having a difficult time trying to get my old hard drive mounted to my new server. Let me give you some background on what I am doing.
I used to have my main desktop setup as a backup server for my main server hosted at a data center. It would run periodic backups of the database and files on the server, well I ended up upgrading that desktop to be used as my main gaming computer. I just disconnected the hard drive and installed a new operating system on a new hard drive. I then ordered a Dell SC1425 1U server; I got CentOS 5.5 (Same as my old server) installed on it, and I took my old hard drive and placed it in an external enclosure (USB) and connected it to my new server. I ended up having to run some commands to change the LVM name to something different, since they were both "VolGroup00". After successfully changing the old drive to "VolGroup01" I connected the USB drive back to the server but only the "Boot" partition is being mounted. I can't seem to mount the other partition.
Code: df -T Filesystem Type 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 ext3 73514160 3351180 66368448 5% / /dev/sda1 ext3 101086 12173 83694 13% /boot code....
I've been running Linux for a year on our family computers (one desktop, one laptop and two netbooks). I've run into a problem with the encrypted ext4 partition (270GB) on a LaCie external hard drive which also has a NTFS partition (50GB) which is not encrypted . First two times I tried using the encrypted ext4 partition (from two different computers) it worked fine but now I can't access it at all. I can still access the NTFS partition.Encrypted external hard drive partition will unlock but won't mount (or unmount). The computer says "Opening 320GB Hard Disk" but after a minute says, "Unable to mount location. DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply"Disk utility (GUI for gparted I believe) states that the encrypted partition (/dev/sdb1) is unlocked and the underlying partition (/dev/dm-0) is not mounted but it has a "busy circle sign" on it that will not turn off. The NTFS partition on the same drive mounts and accesses normally.
But if I try to unmount the NTFS partition, it says: "Unable to stop drive. One or more partitions are busy on /dev/sdb"If I try to shut down the computer, it is unable to shut down because (I assume) it can't shut down that drive either. So I have to just turn off the computer.fdisk states that /dev/dm-0 doesn't have a valid partition table [full output attached]fsck suggests: "Filesystem mounted or opened exclusively by another program?"ps axuf shows some processes running on /dev/dm-0 but killinghem doesn't release the drive either. [full output attached]I checked /etc/blkid.tab (suggested in one vaguely related thread) and there's no actual file only a broken link pointing to /dev/.blkid.tab (which doesn't exist). I tried deleting this link and rebooting but that didn't change anything.when I finally gave up my data as lost, I tried to format the partition (using Disk Utility) and it refused saying, "One or more block devices are holding /dev/sdb"
My parents bought a new hard drive for a laptop that I've owned for several years. It's much larger than the current one, so I plan on splitting it up to dual boot it with Ubuntu.I have no problem with partitioning a drive (I always keep a LiveCD handy), but my question is this: how can I go about moving the existing partition to the new drive? This is a laptop, so I can't simply plug the new drive into another slot.
Also, even if I manage to move it, will Windows still work on the new drive in a larger partition? I've had this laptop for quite a while, and I've lost the recovery discs that came with it a long time ago. I also have a lot of software without CDs to reinstall them with. This makes not reinstalling Windows a high priority.
I am trying to move a whole bunch of files from one partition on one hard drive to the same partition on another hard drive. Can I mount the same partition (same name, different drives, i.e. /data on /dev/hda1 and /data on /dev/hdb1)and copy those files? Shutdown the server, take out /dev/hda1 and boot up with the new drive and it's /data contents.
Storage information: 1st primary:SG 160G ATA 100 1st secondary:WD 160 ATA 133 SATA:WD 1000 2nd primary:DVD 2nd secondary:DVD±RW
Winxp in 1st primary.I did a fresh install of lenny on 1st secondary.
info about lenny setup: 1.Partition list:/boot,/,/home,swap 2.Every partition is XFS except swap.
At the end of installion,lenny installed grub on (hd0) that is 1st primary.
Everything seems OK.Lenny runs OK.
But when I switch back to windows xp,the diskmgmt can not detect hdd's info and the system meets a problem of shutting down.
After many times of trying. I solved the problem by the following way. 1.Boot with windows xp's install CD and use fixmbr on (hd0). 2.Boot with lenny's install DVD , do a grub>root (1,0)>setup (hd1) After that,edit /boot/grub/menu.lst and change (hd0,0) to (hd1,0) and also (hd1,0) to (hd0,0). 3.Reboot and Press F8 for a boot menu then I can select which disk to boot. windows boot from 1st primary's mbr,lenny boot from lenny's grub.
The problem is caused by a bug between GRUB and windows' mbr and maybe more about GRUB and XFS.
im looking for a command for mounting an ntfs partition. what i want to do is to put that command to the "after startup applications" option. that's because that ntfs partition is my storage partition, i play steam games [win7 dualboot, thats why that partition is ntfs], download movies etc. in my places menu, its called 190GB Filesystem, and when i click it, it mounts up. but that means i have to click it everytime i boot up, because vuze can't locate the files if it isnt mounted.
by the way : /media/7C1EE4E21EE49684 when its mounted
I have a 3T hitachi hard disk partitioned by Windows 7 and formatted as NTFS that I'm unable to mount under Ubuntu 11.04. The disk is in an external enclosure connected via USB2. Windows 7 has no problems seeing the partition and mounting the drive.
ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /media/sdd7 ntfs_mst_post_read_fixup: magic: 0x00000000 size: 1024 usa_ofs: 0 usa_count: 65535: Invalid argument Record 6 has no FILE magic (0x0) Failed to open inode FILE_Bitmap: Input/output error Failed to mount '/dev/sdb1': 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 just tried mounting my Iomega 1tb hard external hard drive, but it doesn't seem to work. The drive doesn't show up in nautilus. When I look at it with parted it shows as a ms-dos filesystem. If I plug it into my imac, it shows doesn't mount either, but in the driveutility it shows up as a fat32.Windows 7 doesn't seem to helpfull as it just says that the drive needs to be formatted.Is there any way to recover my files before I format, or better yet solve this problem without formatting?
I am trying to mount a 2nd NTFS storage disk in my new installation on Ubuntu 10.10, I can see it in the disk manager, but cannot access the files, I tried following the steps on this on another thread and i got the following error:
I am attempting to put vista onto my laptop from a Full install of Ubuntu 10.10, but when I boot from my vista CD and attempt the instalation it says I have to have my drive formated to NTFS, I have tried to google how to get this done.ied to go to ystem>Administration>Disk Utility and then edit the type of the partition but there are like 20 options and none of which are just NTFS. what should I do?
I am trying to recover some important data from a 273 gig NTFS partition that was used in windows 7. The laptop was dropped and would not boot the next day. As an external drive I could see 2 smaller partitions (30 gig and 500 meg), but the main partition was RAW and requesting to be formatted... so I came to learn about Knoppix 6.2.1 as my live boot cd and ran ddrescue to recover an almost complete image of the bad partitionddrescue -n /dev/sdc1 /media/sda1/image.img /media/sda1/logfile.logI then ran it one more time:ddrescue -r 1 /dev/sdc1 /media/sda1/image.img /media/sda1/logfile.logthe image was made with 741 errors (amounting to 160 megabytes)So Now I have my partition as image.img which I want to mount.
First I tried sudo mount -t ntfs -o loop /media/sda1/image.img /mnt/recovered sudo mount -t ntfs -o loop,force /media/sda1/image.img /mnt/recovered
I have a windows partition on my drive, and I want to access it without having to mount it first, etc. There are just two partitions, windows and Ubuntu. I am running Ubuntu 10.04.1 so I want to mount it on startup. I saw this article: [URL] but I don't know if what it describes will work as it's almost 2 years old. I'm not adverse to commands, in fact would probably prefer those.
I have a small NTFS partition with a Windows 7 setup.I haven't used it for a long time, but today I booted into Windows 7, which worked fine. However, after a reboot I can no longer boot from the W7 partition (leads to an almost immediate reboot) and what's worse, I cannot mount the partition in Ubuntu either (tried both 9.10 and 10.10).When trying it in Nautilus or manually using mount.ntfs /dev/sda2 /tmp/ntest, I get messages like the following:
[ 123.590083] mount.ntfs: segfault at 7fff3f1e0ff8 ip 00007ffb6bb820a9 sp 00007fff3f1e1000 error 6 in libntfs-3g.so.79.0.0[7ffb6bb5a000+42000] [ 243.869668] mount.ntfs: segfault at 7fff6c180ff0 ip 00007f0caada5ce0 sp 00007fff6c181018 error 6 in libc-2.12.1.so[7f0caad2b000+17a000]
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!
