Ubuntu :: Mounting Windows Partition On Startup?

Feb 18, 2011

I have just installed ubuntu 10.10 on my win7 laptop (Acer Timeline 3810T) with wubi. I can mount the laptop's windows partition with no issues using NTFS Config (after installing hal), but every time after I reboot ubuntu tells me that it cannot mount the windows partition. If I reopen NTFS config after reboot now my previously-mounted partition shows as having 0Gb of data and there is a new /host partition that represents the windows partition. I can then mount it again by renaming it into /media/Windows and it again works until a reboot.

Ubuntu Installation :: Mounting Partition Not During Startup

Jun 19, 2010

yesterday I did an upgrade from 9.10 to 10.04 and this time it was a mixed experience, most thing worked, but some things like gdm, sound and other setting need(ed) corrections to work again (as in 9.10).In 9.10 I setup my system so that the second partition (data) was only manually mounted after asking for my password.

After updating 10.04 I asking me at every bootup whether I want to manually mount or skip the mounting. And when I manually mount the partition I don't need any password anymore.Why did the upgrade change my setting?Not being an linux-expert, having not documented how I have done the previous setup and being unlucky with google, I could use some pointers in the right direction.Even if I sound not so happy at the moment I really appreciate the good work that went into ubuntu. After setting up my system after each new installation or upgrade I enjoyed a carefree time with ubuntu (where I forget everything I need to setup my system because it just works as it should).

Fedora :: Mounting Partition Upon Startup

Mar 31, 2010

I've migrated back to Fedora as I am just displeased with the majority of debian based distros and Sabayon at the moment. Fedora has grown up quite a bit since FC9 and I'm here to stay. I keep all of my media and documents on a seperate partition on my disk and am wondering how I can have it set to automatically mount it upon startup. It gets kind of annoying having to re-enter my password every reboot just to mount the partition that 90% of my time is spent on.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 11.04 Mounting Windows Music From LAN On Startup

May 17, 2011

My problem is that in order to get Banshee to play my music thats in a Windows system on the LAN, I have to mount the volume first. This works fine if I navigate to the folder every time I startup Ubuntu and then play music through the library in banshee. However, I want to add a command to mount the volume on startup in the startup applications. I tried this in a terminal:

Code: sudo mount -a smb://home/p/My Music /home/username/Music/Music on Home This didn't mount anything. In fact, I couldn't even cd to the directory "smb://home/p/My Music". And yes, I did already make the directory "/home/username/Music/Music on Home". I'm thinking that my problem is really how do I write the address of a Windows network drive.

Ubuntu :: Lucid Lynx: Mounting Windows Partition And Password?

May 12, 2010

I was just wondering, is there a reason why when mounting a Windows partition I am no longer prompted for a password? I kinda liked this behaviour because it helped me lower the risk of doing stupid stuff to the windows partition.

Ubuntu :: Windows Partition Won't Mount Automatically At Startup?

I had to re-install Windows XP because the install was running slow.So, I created another partition using GParted for my personal data and moved my files there and re-installed Windows XP.Now, the Windows partition won't mount automatically.NTFS Configuration Tool shows 0.0GB. So, I have to open up a Terminal window, and issue sudo mount /dev/sda1 /media/Windows and everything is fine.

General :: Boot Windows Partition On Startup Or Creating A New MBR ?

Aug 2, 2010

I have two hard drives in my desktop. One HD has a working Ubuntu system-hence the ability to post here- and the other contains Windows XP Pro. When the XP drive crashed I was able to re-install an image I had saved using Acronis. Unfortunately the dual-boot option at startup is no longer available. I can only boot to Ubuntu. Not so bad really but there are some programs on Windows that I need to use. Is there any way, using Grub perhaps, that I can reconfigure an MBR to include the second hard drive and the Windows system?

Networking :: Mounting Permissions Error / Mounting A Windows Host?

May 28, 2009

I am having permissions errors every time I try to mount a windows host. I have a linux server and all the windows computers can see that computer and its files, but we wanted to start backing up the linux machine to one of our other computers. so I tried to mount one of the computers. here is the sequence of events:

$mount -t cifs //$ /mnt/Anita-comp
password: (I have no password so I left it blank)
Mount error (13): Permission Denied
I tried all sorts of passwords we use around the office and none of them worked.

I then decided to try mounting one of our other computers. this one looked like it worked fine. no error messages at all. (I left password blank) so I look in my filesystem and the mounted drive is not in the /mnt/Anita-comp file. What gives?

Ubuntu :: Mounting A Partition On A Partition Unstable?

Jan 19, 2011

I have come across the following statement: " When a FAT32 partition is mounted at '/media/windows', all access to '/media/windows' and everything below it is transparently handled by the Linux kernel using the 'vfat' module. Applications need not know they're dealing with anything else. However, mounting a partition at a location inside of another mounted partition is unpredictable, unstable, and generally a bad idea. "

Is it correct? Most of my partitions are mounted on /home, which is on a separate partition; and I have one "level 3" partition. I have been using Ubuntu for nearly three years so far with no problems (except for /home losing it's format once).

Ubuntu Networking :: Trouble Mounting NAS On Startup

Aug 22, 2010

I am having difficulties to mount my NAS (zyxel nsa210) on startup. After some online research, i stumbled upon the "solution".I was advised to write an entry into the fstab-file and that's what i did.And this actually worked like a charm and i was then able to find NAS in "Places". (Not on my desktop since i disabled it). BUT this works not after booting up...meaning there is nothing like NAS in "Places" and i have to mount it manually by using the "sudo mount -a"-command...there is nothing automatic about this solution...So now my question for everyone capable of answering me: "Where did i go wrong? i have installed smbfs and the folder where the NAS should be mounted in actually exists, so the usual suspects should be ruled out i guess

General :: Mounting Drive At Startup

Oct 8, 2010

I had windows vista on one partition, xp on another documents on another and programs on another.When I installed ubuntu on a new partition it very kindly let me see all the other partitions and mount them as necessary. I would like all my ubuntu files, documents music downloads to go right on to the documents partition so when I back up that drive to an external I have it backs up the documents drive it has all the files I have created in vista or ubuntu. Eventually I want to leave windows completely but I would still want to store all the ubuntu files on the documents drive.

I can go to "places" and mount the documents drive but what I would like to do is when I fire up ubuntu that the documents drive mounts automatically.

Ubuntu Installation :: Resizing Windows Partition - Install Files On A Non Windows NTFS Partition

Jul 22, 2010

Now however its not letting me resize the Windows partition, mounted or unmounted. It currently occupies the whole disk. I would rather not reinstall the whole thing over again, but I will if I have to. Isnt there an easy way to shrink a Windows partition? I swear Ive done this before and it wasnt this hard. Could it be a problem with the Mint installer that now asks me if I want to unmount my disks before it goes into install mode? On this PC I would like to have

Windows XP
One of the E17 OSs
Puppy Linux (to create a remix)

I am probably going to put most of the linux partitions on the second laptop drive but I want to install files on a non WIndows NTFS partition.

Ubuntu :: Finding Windows Partition - Use FAT32 Partition For Photo Images And Old Windows Files

May 31, 2011

I got tired of dual booting on my old computer so on the new computer I am planning to run XP on VMware Player. The problem is that on the new computer neither Ubuntu or XP can "see" the FAT32 partition. I intend to use the FAT32 partition for photo images and old Windows files and need access from both Ubintu and XP.

Partition table entries are not in disk order.

Fedora Networking :: Mounting Remote Drive On Startup

Nov 16, 2010

I want to mount a remote drive on bootup. I'm using FC14 and remote machine is FreeBSD. I've written a shell script to mount it. The script contains only one line:
mount /media/mc33

I've to run this script from superuser mode to mount the file system(it works). So to mount it at bootup, I added the shell script to my PATH (/home/me/bin) and added it to Menu->System->Preferences->Startup Applications. Well this doesn't work because the root privileges are not present. I tried fixing it by giving root privileges to my shell script
#chmod +s mount-mc33
but it made no difference.

Fedora Hardware :: USB Hard Drive Mounting At Startup?

Feb 14, 2011

I just moved from ubuntu to fedora 14 and I'm having an issue with a portable USB hard drive. When the hard drive is connected at startup it mounts at /dev/sda and my other 3 internal hard drives are mounted at /dev/sdb, /dev/sdc and /dev/sdd; of course this is an issue with my FSTAB file since i mount some of the partitions in the first hard drive (/dev/sda) at some special points in my file system, so i need to restart my computer and unplug the USB hard drive to get things working, however when i was working with ubuntu this didn't happen. I need that the USB hard drive mounts at /dev/sdd at startup so my FSTAB could work.

Ubuntu :: Mounting A Windows And Displaying The Windows Desktop

Mar 19, 2011

I have a windows PC which I would like to dual boot with Ubuntu. However, I have some very important documents scattered all over the "My Documents" folder. I don't want to move these to the linux partition manually because of the possibility of misplacing, deleting or otherwise doing something that could alter these files. (They happen to be notes that I make on Biology).

My plan was to mount the windows partitions on Ubuntu and then use symbolic links to navigate to the "My Docs" folder on the windows partition.

This is the main question: It is possible to mount hard drives and then make an existing folder on Ubuntu (for example the /home/user/Documents folder)point to the "MY DOCUMENTS" folder on windows? (By "point to" I mean something like a symbolic link. So, for example, by double clicking on the /home/user/Documents folder, the "My documents folder" on windows should be opened. )

Ubuntu :: Mounting HDD Image Of LVM Partition

Mar 13, 2010

I have a dedicated server that Ubuntu 9.04 operating system has been installed on it. Before this dedicated server, I had another server that according to some reasons, it was put aside and I requested my datacenter support team to attach previous server's HDD to my new server in order to transfer its information to the new server's HDD. On the disks of previous HDD, Ubuntu 8.04 LTS OS had been installed and most of its capacity was full, but while I mounted that HDD on the new server, the contents of the primary partition were visible but the contents of the extended partition weren't visible. After some inspectings, I observerd that the extended partition type is converted to LVM. Before this, I didn't deal with this kind of partition. I tried to mount this partition but I failed. I read many articles about this problem and implemented instructions on the HDD but the LVM partition was never mounted that returns many different errors and even I pursued the reasons of this errors but non of these remedies didn't solve this problem. Since the datacenter had determined a specifies time for transfering information. then I had to return the SCSI HDD on the specified time, so I was forced to make an image of the hard disk by "TestDisk" software. I've made that image from the LVM partition which its capacity amounts to 150 GB but still I'm not able to mount the image according to instructions on the different related websitres. Since I'm really dummy in Linux Fle System field, I request you to help me to mount this image or extract its contents.

Ubuntu :: U11.04 Not Mounting My Swap Partition / Fix It?

May 11, 2011

Ubuntu has been complaining about swap not being ready during boot. The swap partition was showing up un-known in gparted. I booted off CD, reformatted it to swap. Error message gone but system monitor > resources shows my swap size to be 86GB (the exact size of my shared NTFS volume). gparted shows the swap partition as not 'swapped on'

I am running Ubuntu 11.04 along side Windows 7 (as well as my factory restore partition) and an NTFS shared partition.

My partition structure in order of location on disc. Screen shot below to help.
sda1-2 Windows 7
sda4, extended partition
--sda6 Ubuntu
--sda7 swap
--sda5 NTFS shared partition
sda3 Factory restore image
