Red Hat :: Unknown File System NTFS After Update 5.3
Jan 17, 2010
I have updated my linux version 5.2 yo 5.3 after that I wanted to mount my windows drives. I installed this rpm kernel-module-ntfs-2.6.18-92.el5-2.1.27-0.rr.10.11.i686.rpm (99KB) its not working while um giving this command #mount -t ntfs /dev/sda5 /mnt shows a error unknown file system NTFS. bt it worked in 5.2.
I have the following error : unknown filesystem. grub rescue after incorrect dual boot with Windows 7. - i was so stupid to install Linux and windows 7 on the same partition ....I did some investigation i found online that i should continue with supergrub disk
Steps i have taken first i installed rescatux iso on dvd then cd then usb changed BIOS offcourse to boot from these locations. Then i tried SuperGrub disk 2 did exactly the same but still i am not able to recover anything then i tried supergrub disk 1 all over again dvd cd rom and usb but i don t get the option to recover windows bootloaders After that i was able to start my pc with the ubuntu run from USB
Is there anybody who any tips where to start now i really need my windows for workrelated stuff the usb version gives me the option to fully install UBUNTU. If i do this do i then overwrite my windows 7 partition again?
i installed ubuntu 10.04.. all very nice, but not the os for me.. lightscribe problems, front ir panel problems. minor niggles for sure, but enough for me to go ahead with formatting and installing windows. simple job...or so i thought... using windows set up, i formatted c: and continued with install...on first restart i got a grub error saying unknown file system... i have tried loads of different things... fix mbr fixboot, that nt60 one. dban wouldnt work either.. im at my wits end ive spunked the best part of 1000 on this system and my wife is nagging me.
I previously had Ubuntu installed on my MBR. I deleted that partition (32 GB), resized my Mac partition back up to (250 GB), and then reduced it to 200 GB and created a new one with 50 GB via BootCamp to install Windows 7 from a DVD that I burnt (I got a Windows executable from MSDNAA that I used with Wine to obtain the ISO image. Insert rant about having to download Windows with a Windows executable here.).
I've tried burning two different DVDs. I used Burn on my Mac to burn a data DVD+R with the HFS+ and Joliet filesystems (I think) and then tried again with the ISO9660 and UDF filesystems. The latter has not shown any signs of working besides mounting on OS X. The first DVD would not boot whenever I held 'C' down at time of boot. So I went into BootCamp and clicked "Start Installation". It restarted my computer and this is where the real confusion comes up. I think that it tried booting via the empty partition. The reason I say this is that there are remnants of GRUB and when I boot, I get a screen that says this: error: unknown filesystemrub rescue>
A drive on my Linux machine is NTFS as the file system. There's a file corruption issue of some kind for copying files from the drive to another or another PC result in I/O errors. Overall, I work with 2 systems, one Windoze, the other Linux. I'm about to switch the roles of the 2 machines. The one with the corrupted ntfs partition is about to become my Windows machine and the Windows machine is going to become Linux.
Since I will be installing Windows on the machine with the problematic ntfs partition, I'm figuring at some point, Windoze chdsk will kick in and fix the drive. (Windows will be installed to another drive that is perfect right now.)
Is this a correct assumption? Or, do I do everything I possibly can to fix the corrupt partition prior to the new Windows install? If this is true, what are my options for fixing corrupted files under Ubuntu? Research I've done hasn't yielded much in results and a definitive answer for fixing corrupt files in Linux.
Got Samba on fedora 13. Windows machines backup their files to the linux shared folder. I want to attach an external hard disk (USB) to the linux machine in order to backup those files. Can the external hard drive be NTFS or do I need to reformat it as Linux file system (ext3)?
I have a videos server here at work running Mandriva 2009 Spring and I need to copy a 10 gig file from it to a USB drive. The drive needs to be readable and writable from Windows. The file size rules out FAT, and when I try to write to it when formatted as NTFS I get an error about it being a read-only file system. How can I get NTFS support up and running?
It started when I wanted to dual boot Windows 7 and Opensuse off of my netbook (No DVD/CD drive) I tried install suse from an external hard drive and I botched it. I ended up erasing EVERYTHING off of my internal netbook hard drive. Windows and all.
Well, I had a couple of other computers so I studied up and eventually successfully installed OpenSUSE 11.2 on my external hard drive (11.3 being the one that I accidentally erased everything with, so kinda scared of it) and now I want to install openSUSE 11.2 on my internal netbook hard drive.
I can not use disks
I can not use a flash drive (For some reason, even if I make it bootable, it will not load up, this could be because it's actually a 8GB microSD card that is placed in a USB card reader.)
I can not use an external hard drive because that's what I'm running suse off of.
I've tried reading up on how to install suse on another drive off of the hard drive and I've gotten as far as whenever I boot up the netbook with the suse external hard drive connected it will ask to boot into OpenSUSE, the Fail Safe, or to install OpenSuse. When I select to install it it gives me the Error 18 Unknown File system.
I've tried formatting the internal hard drive twice. One as NTFS and again as EXT4. Neither seems to effect it other than when it's ext4 I can open it and it contains a Lost and Found folder.
When I interrupt the boot sequence by pressing c and going to the terminal and I use the root (hd +TAB command it tells me I have a hd0 and a hd1. The hd1 only has 1 partition which is ext4, which I'm assuming hd1 is the internal hard drive (I'm not sure how to check) and the hd0 is the external hard drive, which has three partitions. One with an unknown file system and two with ext4. When I try to enter the set up from the terminal it gives me the same error for any thing I put it (e.g. root (hd0,0) gives the same error as root (hd0,1), or root (hd0,2) and root (hd1,0)
Something like it cannot locate these two files I'm assuming it needs to boot. If anyone finds this relevant I'll retry it and post the files its missing.
I've been searching for awhile and can't find any threads that can solve my problem. From other threads, however, I have noticed that I should probably include my menu.lst, listed below
I have also ran the boot info script and received the RESULTS.txt file it generates. Listed below
can assign permissions on a partition with ntfs as the file system. I am aware of editing fstab and setting some basic permissions. What I am clumsily dictating is can you edit permissions of individual folders for specific users in Linux. I have already tried chmod and such
Trying to mount my NTFS file system (portable hard drive) so that is can be recognized by a program I have installed in wine (seagate manager). I've tried to change the mount point for the drive to /home/.wine/c_drive but that doesn't seem to do the trick, and messing around with the fstab file just results in error messages when I try to mount/unmount the drive.
who to change the mount point properly? /dev/sbd1 is my partition.
Either that or does anyone know how to configure wine so that it will find my drive? I've tried adding an e: drive to the drives tab and mapped it to mediaSimons' Seagate (partition label), but that doesn't seem to do the trick either.
Someone on IRC had mentioned they had a shared partition in NTFS, and that Ubuntu could read from it just fine... I wanted to get a second opinion before I did anything. Right now I have a WinXP partition and an Ubuntu partition, and a large NTFS partition in the middle that I'd like to move my /home to.
There were some files residing on my ext3 file system, using Ubuntu as my linux distribution. Yesterday I formatted the hard drive using a windows install CD, rewriting it with a new NTFS partition. I'm willing to restore my personal files deleted due to this format.
I have an NTFS file system nfs-automounted on our RedHat servers. Users can read and write to the file system no problem, and can create new files, edit them, and delete them to their heart's content. The only issue is that utilities such as "dos2unix" cannot create temporary working files:
$ dos2unix events.0818.dat dos2unix: converting file events.0818.dat to UNIX format ... Failed to open output temp file: Operation not permitted dos2unix: problems converting file events.0818.dat
This isn't limited to "dos2unix"; any other utility that creates a temporary working file gets the same problem. If I copy the file to a local file system like /tmp, it works fine. Here's the kicker: this works fine on Solaris systems. I can take the "dos2unix" utility over to a Solaris system that has that exact same NTFS file system automounted via NFS, and it works. No issues creating temporary working files at all.
I dont know anything about linux and just been assigned to amount a drive to it. here's what i did so far: Version of Linux using Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.3 (Tikanga) [root]# mount -t auto /dev/sdb1 /tmp/archive mount: unknown filesystem type 'ntfs'
when checking the /proc/filesystems, i noticed that 'ntfs' is not listed there, several forum suggested i try running 'modprobe ntfs'. If that is not found, you'll need a kernel with ntfs support. i'm so lost, where to i get the modprobe ntfs
I had windows with ntfs I installed ubuntu. All ok. Gurb with 2 os, can ran windows and ubuntu and can mount ntfs partition in ubuntu I installed debian with lvm over ubuntu partition. I can't mount ntfs partition now, and windows doesn't appears in gurb
I'm running Ubuntu 9.10. I want to make a backup copy of my install using Partimage. Where it say's to name your file, I put "U9.10backup". Just get an error message "The file system of [/dev/sda1] is [-unknown-], and is not supported". What am I doing wrong here? Also, don't I need to backup the swap as well?
