So, my GParted (Ubuntu) won't create an NTFS partition (the option is greyed out). I'm trying to create an NTFS partition to allow for a Windows 7/Ubuntu dual-boot. Everywhere I check, they suggest either creating the NTFS partition in GParted BEFORE installing Windows OR leaving it "unallocated" with the Linux partition after it.
I have tried both now, with two results:
1) GParted can't create an NTFS partition within Ubuntu 9.10.
2) On the other hand, the Windows 7 Installer says that Windows can not create a partition or find a partition when I attempt to select the "unallocated" portion.
I was attempting to format a flash drive, and well, used the wrong sdX device. I've run DiskInternals Partition Recovery tool, and all my files are still there (you have to pay $139 to have it restore the files). Is there any way using tools in linux to restore the ntfs partition/files? It was a single disk with the partition taking the entire drive. I've tried mounting it with the -t option, but it says invalid ntfs signature. Man, two lessons the hard way, make sure you backup (duh) and be careful what you type as root.
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 have a dual-boot system, Windows XP on primary HDD and Fedora on Slave HDD. NTFS -3G is installed in Fedora, but I would like to hide (or not mount) Windows system partition on Fedora boot, as I have multiple users in Fedora and do not want them to access this partition. I do want to mount/display my NTFS D: partition in Fedora. Is there a way to exclude an NTFS partition from mounting by default?
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
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.
I have one computer with windows and one with ubuntu. I have an external drive (FAT32) with files taken from an NTFS (mp3s and such) and I would like to put them and use them on an ext4 ubuntu platform. Can I make a partition of the /home folder NTFS and the system ext4 and function properly? I do have configuration files in the /home folder since Im building a domain controller that utilizes samba on ubuntu: would I be better off using a dual boot with windows/ubuntu and placing the files on the Windows partition? what is my best option?>
i tried installing windows 7 on a partition on my laptop but i'm getting this message:"setup was unable to create a new partition or locate an existing system partition "i tried googling and found that it has something to do with the number of partitions:my hard disk layout right now:
I want to mount ntfs partition in rhel5 I searched a lot in google and finally understood that these three RPMS are must to mount ntfs partition in rhel5. My kernel version vmlinuz-2.6.18-53.el5. As per instructions in the net I downloaded these rpmms fuse-2.6.5-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm fuse-ntfs-3g-1.1030-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm fuse-kmdl-2.6.18-53.el5-2.7.1-6_7.el5.i686.rpm
First and second rpms are installed successfully but third is showing errors saying rpm -ivh fuse-kmdl-2.6.18-53.el5-2.7.1-6_7.el5.i686.rpm Failed dependency /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-53.el5 is needed by fuse-kmdl-2.6.18-53.el5-2.7.1-6_7.el5.i686.rpm
But I copied vmlinuz-2.6.18-53.el5 in /boot even though it is saying dependencies missing #rpm -qa | grep kernel kernel-headers-2.6.18-53.el5 kernel-xen-2.6.18-53.el5. #modprobe fuse FATAL: module fuse not found #uname -a Linux server2.vth.com 2.6.18-53.el5xen.
My query is that why am unable to install the kernel module. Currently running kernel-xen-2.6.18-53.el5. I tried in another system above three rpms were installed successfully without any errors. What was the reason for my system.
I'm trying to resize an NTFS partition on an IBM MT7977 Server. It has a Adaptec AIC-9580W RAID controller. I was thinking about doing it with a gparted LiveCD/LiveUSB, but then I realised that they won't have drivers for the RAID controller. A quick google for "9580W Linux" doesn't return anything promising.
I am doing major deployment of opensuse 313 pcs from windows to opensuse. I am having a problem that I have to keep 2 ntfs partitions intact will deleting the partition that has windows. Now everything goes well, opensuse installs but the problem is that I cannot give user full rights to ntfs folders. I have used graphical file permission methods n terminal chown n chmod methos but still permissions revert back to root.
I am trying to restore an NTFS partition from a backup and I need the new drive to have the old (dead) drive's UUID (which I recorded).I really really really cannot use the option of changing fstab to mount using a new UUID, for this case I need the old UUID that existed on the other drive.Is there some ntfs equivalent of tune2fs that'll let me change the UUID on an ntfs partition?

is there a way to create a system restore disk or recovery partition ? somewhat like windows has. I do back up my files regularly but a back up of entire os system and settings would be handy.running ubuntu 10.10
I'm trying to setup a small network between my old and new laptops to transfer my personal data. They are now linked with a crossover cable and they see each other.The old one has a dual-boot setup with WinXp and Ubuntu 9.10.The new one with Win7 and Ubuntu 9.10.I tried samba but it was very slow even using Windows in both computers: maximum transfer rates were about 1,5 Mib/sec.I tried SSH using ubuntu on both pcs and it is reliable and much faster, 5 Mib/sec. But I wanted more...I installed the NFS server on the old one and exported the NTFS partition where my data resides with sync and ro options.
I installed the NFS client on the new one and i'm able to mount the remote partition.Now, when I transfer my files I get very high speed, more than 10 Mib/sec but after a while I get a "Stale NFS file handler" error but I really didn't touch any file in the old pc and the connection is always up.Searching on the web I found that NFS had some troubles exporting NTFS partitions in the past but should be fully compatible with them since the last versions of ubuntu.
I have decided that my partition table does not meet my needs Barrymore, and I want to shrink the "/" partition by 80GB, and then create another file system on that space. I did some research on-line, and I'm not sure which way is the easiest and more secure way to perform the change with out putting the "/" file system on risk.
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?
I recently expanded the RAID on an iSCSI device which is shared out to a linux server. Fdisk correctly sees the new size but it won't let me add a third partition. It complains about overlapping partitions whenever I try to add it.If I 'remove' the partition, the overlapping error goes away. The interesting thing here is that when attempting to use the default sizes to setup the partition the printed screen shows completely different results (which I can understand is why its complaining about overlapping)
I'm not sure why its not accepting the cylinder sizes I want. Anyone have any ideas as to what's wrong here?
At present, In web server 97% space has been occupied in /usr/share/squirrelmail partition. Therefore, we need to increase the partition of our existing storage device (NAS Storage box) either by creating new partion or merged the same along with the existing partition.

I want to configure Name Server i.e., DNS to my red hat linux box in a production enviromnt.The ram is 2 GB and Hard Disk size is 200 GB. How much space should I give /var, /usr, /boot, /root and home partition. May be I am wrong in partition point of view while installing fresh red hat but to install for home purpose and server end is different. So kindly guide me the hard disk partition size to ready it for name server.
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.
