Ubuntu :: Mounting Solaris 10 EFI GPT Labeled Hard Drive?

Feb 9, 2010

I have a 1.5TB hard drive that was initially set up on a Solaris 10 x86 host system. Due to the large device size, Solaris labeled the disk with an EFI (GPT) label instead of the traditional SMI (VTOC) label when it was partitioned. 4 slices are defined in the GPT: root (128 MB), swap (128 MB), usr (1.4 TB) and reserved (8 MB). A standard Solaris UFS filesystem was created on the 1.4TB usr slice.

I have now physically removed the hard drive from the solaris system and have installed it in an Ubuntu 9.10 system. I have no trouble mounting regular Solaris UFS filesystems on SMI-labeled drives:

Code:

# mount -v -r -t ufs -o ufstype=sunx86 /dev/sdb1 /mnt

However for EFI-labeled drives such as the one I described above, there are multiple issues.

1. Ubuntu believes the GPT is incorrect, as witnessed by these syslog messages:

Code:

kernel: [ 2.559777] scsi 4:1:6:0: Direct-Access ST31500341AS CC1H PQ: 0 ANSI: 5
kernel: [ 2.600193] sd 4:1:6:0: Attached scsi generic sg11 type 0

[code]....

Notice how Ubuntu is not recognizing or reporting the Solaris ufs filesystem on sde7.

2: the UFS filesystem is not mountable.

Code:

# mount -v -r -t ufs -o ufstype=sunx86 /dev/sde7 /mnt
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sde7,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error

[code]....

Ubuntu :: Mounting An External USB Hard Drive?

Jan 16, 2010

I'm trying to get ubuntu 9.04 to recognize a Maxtor One Touch III USB external hard drive. This drive has been formatted and used on a Windows XP. I cleared everything off but am trying to see if I can arrange it so that I can back up from linux and access (if need be) from a Windows machine.

Here is what I get with fdisk -l:

/dev/sda1 * 1 14219 114214086 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 14220 14593 3004155 5 Extended
/dev/sda5 14220 14593 3004123+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris

Ubuntu :: Have To Keep On Manually Mounting Second Hard Drive?

Aug 2, 2010

I added a second internal hard drive to my system.It took a while to figure out how to mount it, and I thought all my problems were over.I want to use this for storage for Transmission since this would keep all the files independent of my other hard drive.One thing that I noticed is that when I restart my computer it doesn't automatically mount the drive (Transmission gives me an error message saying it's not able to access the drive).So I remounted it, and noticed that it restarts all my torrents.One thing that I noticed is that Transmission keeps the .torrent files in /tmp and IIRC there is an option to move them wherever you want to in Deluge (I don't know if this will help anything or not).I don't like Deluge, but if it's somehow easier.

So how can I retain my settings prior to restarting and make this permanent?I do like to turn my computer off from time to time, and I am quad booting with other distros that I like testing out.

Ubuntu :: Mounting Hard Drive With Fstab?

Aug 27, 2010

I purchased a new hard drive, plugged it in, formated it, edited fstab to auto mount it, and though it is mounting the drive, it won't allow me write privileges. I can read the drive, but I need root access to write to it. The drive giving me the issue is sdd1. The others, I have no problems with. I can read and write to those without a hitch.

Here is my fstab

Code:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
# /dev/sda1
UUID=5d0ed718-2719-4b28-a031-9ab10f9aa740 / ext3 relatime,errors=remount-ro 0 1

Ubuntu :: Hard Drive Mounting During Boot?

Nov 4, 2010

Running 10.10 64bit Kernel 2.6.35-23 I am noticing what I think is a big hiccup in my boot process my drive is mounting at around the 4sec mark then my system pauses for roughly 13 seconds, you can even it see it on the screen a blinking cursor comes up the entire time. Then during the rest of the boot my drive will re-mount at least 4 more times. Then during use of my system there will be random re-mounts throughout the use. Here is the mounting message

[Code]...

I just noticed the pausing recently after an update but have been seeing this re-mounting since install. Are these normal? They dont seem like it to me, and if they are normal why such a long time on the initial mount and every re-mount takes 4-5 seconds. Let me know if I can provide any further info as well.

Ubuntu :: Mounting A Slave Hard Drive?

Apr 19, 2011

I have installed Musix distro on my brand new amd 64 dual core computer but for some reason it is not showing in the media folder. Been a while since i mounted a slave and plain ubuntu seems to do it automatically so i forgot what commands i need to see it. Would love some help as the Musix forum is messed up. They have most of their forum in spanish and the parts that are english are not complete. I managed to sign up but that damn thing is really messed up. I signed up as over 18 but it sends you a form to have signed as under 18. Made 2 different users and still the same problem.

Ubuntu :: Second Hard Drive Not Mounting At Boot / What To Fix It?

Jun 1, 2011

I just installed a second hard drive in my desktop. It shows in the BIOS.

I followed the procedure here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/In...gANewHardDrive to install it in Ubuntu, except I formatted the drive to ext4 not ext3.

It mounts automatically without problem once I am in Ubuntu and I can read/write to it.

My issue is that it won't mount at boot. I get past GRUB and a few seconds later receive an error message giving me an option 'S' to skip, or 'M' to manually mount.

What I noticed is that the logical name for the drive (used sudo lshw -C disk to display) seems to change at each boot.

It goes from /dev/sdb to /dev/sdf and vice versa.

So, I'm thinking this is the problem since I can only add it to /etc/fstab according to what I last saw.

Ubuntu :: Mounting A Firewire Hard Drive?

Jun 11, 2011

I just installed a new clean copy of Ubuntu 11.04 onto a Dell XPS M1710 laptop. I believe it has a generic Texas Instruments Firewire controller. Plugging in a standard Firewire disk does nothing. If I boot with the device and run �dmesg|grep firewire�, I get:

Code:

[ 1.888144] firewire_core: created device fw0: GUID 354fc0001a369961, S400

How can I install the necessary modules to make this work?

Fedora :: Mounting A Hard Drive That Already Has An OS

Dec 18, 2009

I have an 320GB hard drive with F11 installed. Lately, I got a 1.5TB new hard drive, on which I have installed F12. Now I want to use the 320GB as a second hard drive since I have lots of data on it. My question here is as I boot my desktop, how does it recognize to boot from the 1.5TB and consider the 320GB as a secondary? Is there anything I need to setup in BIOS? My motherboard has one extra SATA connection left for a second hard drive.

Ubuntu :: Mounting And Using An Ext3 Hard Drive On Win 7 Computer?

Jan 20, 2010

I have 2 computers, one running ubuntu 9.10 Karmic and the other runs Windows 7.

I have several sata hard drives that I keep files on. They are all formatted ext3. I have a blacx sata to usb dock on my ubuntu computer that I use to go through files and back up and such. I have a usb to sata dock on the windows 7 machine.

When I plug in the hard drive Windows says that it has to be formatted and the drive is "raw"

I can check the drive in ubuntu and everything is right

I tried installing ext2fsd and it sees the drive but wont let me select any file type or mount it. I think because its going through the usb port.

So how can I make windows 7 see and be able to access an ext3 formatted drive thats plugged into the usb port?

Ubuntu Servers :: Mounting External Usb Hard Drive?

Jun 19, 2011

I have attached a 1.5 TB external hard drive to my new Ubuntu server. I mount it in /media/external. I used sudo mount /dev/sdx# /media/external but sdx# keeps changing. I added a line to fstab to mount it permanently but after couple of our it unmounts itself and /media/external is empty. It is in vfat format but webmin shows it as ntfs.

Quote:
cat /etc/fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# Use 'blkid -o value -s UUID' to print the universally unique identifier
# for a device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name

General :: Mounting The Hard Drive From Unetbootin?

Jul 29, 2010

I recently installed Damn Small Linux using unetbootin. Booting Linux from unetbootin seems a lot like booting from a liveCD, so I'd like to mount my hard drive and see what I can do. Unfortunately it looks like Damn Small Linux has not mounted it automatically, and I'm having trouble finding my drive and mounting it from the /dev directory. There are several devices named /dev/*da* and I don't know which is my hard drive. My computer is an HP Mini netbook, so the drive is probably one of the new "solid state" drives if that affects anything.What can I do to find and mount my hard drive from unetbootin?

General :: Mounting Hard Drive In Knoppix ?

May 29, 2011

I have been running a computer under Windows XP for years, and recently it stopped booting unexpectedly. It tries to load windows, but partway though loading a BSOD flashes and it shuts down. To remedy this and hopefully fix this, my frined lent me some Knoppix CDs that I could boot from. He also lent me some external hard drives. I want to be able to access my files on my old hard drive.

Here's the problem: (in Knoppix 6) When I try to mount my main partition of my hard drive, which shows as sda2 (sda1 is an old recovery partition left over from when I ran vista), the following message pops up: "A job is pending on dev/sda2" A little later another error window pops up: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken." I want to be able to mount my hard drive in Knoppix 6.

Fedora :: Creating And Mounting Encrypted USB Hard Drive

Jul 12, 2010

I am looking for a guide for Fedora 13 that tells me how to:

1. Create an encrypted partition on an an external USB hard drive

2. Tells me how to setup Fedora to ask me for the passphrase when I plug in the drive

3. Automounts the hard drive to a set location

The guide should deal with the situation that the computer can mount without declaring the external hard drive is not there.At present my attempt at mounting my Samsung Story USB2 hard drives does not meet criteria 2 and 3.

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.

Hardware :: Mounting USB Hard Drive / Can't Seem To Mount The Other Partition?

Sep 21, 2010

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

Debian Hardware :: External Hard Drive Not Registering / Mounting

May 22, 2014

My external hard drive (about 2 years old) won't mount. It wouldn't mount on Windows either. Other external hard drives (sdb1) mount perfectly.

I am wondering is there a Linux way of getting the hard drive to work again? The disc spins up so it's not a mechanical failure. I'm guessing here but is there a way of flashing firmware onto the external HD if that might be the problem?

(Seagate 2TB ST320005EXD101-RK)

Code: Select all# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
#
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>

Slackware :: External USB Hard Drive Auto-mounting Error

Nov 29, 2009

Just installed Slackware 13 this morning. It's been a long time since I last tried Linux, but Slack works (a lot easier than Slack 8 did back when I last used it!) quite well. I'm using the XFCE desktop and it's smooth as silk except for one odd problem-I cannot get any of my USB drives to mount. I just plugged in my Lexar 4GB USB flash drive and received an error message. Here's from /var/log/messages from when I initally plugged in the drive (I have a 500GB WD MyBook USB external drive that is always plugged in):

Any ideas or suggestions of what to look at? I'm not familiar with HAL in Linux although I've seen plenty of discussion about it and have an idea of what it's supposed to (or break! ).

General :: Dd Copy - Hard Drive Clone Fails When Mounting Root Androotblock - /newroot Failed

Oct 27, 2010

I am trying to replace an old, smaller, and dying laptop hard drive with a newer one, using a USB external drive. I first tried cloning disk to disk with Clonezilla, but it failed after cloning my root, swap, and /home directories it froze when it tried to reinstall grub. After 2x trying, I switched to dd, which I have never really used (I am fairly new to Linux in general). The actual command I used was:

Quote:

dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb bs=4096 conv=notrunc,noerror

All seemed ok and after approximately 2 hours my 80GB drive had been cloned onto my new 250GB, with dd giving what appeared to be a satisfactory closure summary. I tried to mount and access the drive from my external USB enclosure but could not view it, though the data is there, I believe, as the size and bytes show... The error that Dolphin is giving me is:

Quote:

error - wrong fstype, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1 Missing codepage or helper program or other error. When I installed the new drive directly into my laptop, it begins to boot (Sabayon 5.4, 2.6.35 kernel) but almost immediately I get (handwritten down, but this is close):

Quote:

detected real_root
mounting /dev/sda1 on /newroot failed: input/output error
!! Could not mount specified ROOT, try again
!! Could not find the root block device in .

[code]....

I am assuming that my issue has something to do with grub, and maybe specific UUIDs that don't match (?) but I'm not really certain. I have both Grub Legacy 0.9x and the newer Grub 2 installed (Sabayon is already moving over) but I still boot with Legacy, not with the new 2, as I don't know how to switch, and am not sure if I should yet. I thought that dd copied bit for bit, and I added the noerror just to try to get it all transferred, so I don't know what went wrong exactly, though something seems wrong with grub and the bootloader, I guess...
