Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Write To Partition?

Jan 17, 2010

I used gparted to format and merge two partitions to a single 150gig partition. However, after mounting the partition (and entering my password) I am unable to write any files to it.I tried looking at its permissions. Both its owner and group is root.Could anyone help me by telling me how I could change this through gparted, the terminal, or any other way?

Ubuntu :: Unable To Write To Partition?

Aug 6, 2011

I recently installed ubuntu 11.04. After installation, I created two ext4 partitions in my hard drive. My problem is that I can't create any files in these partitions. These partitions are not automatically mounted at boot time, but once I try to access them , they get mounted. I thought all this was managed by /etc/fstab file but I can't see any entry for these partitions there. So, I created an entry for both these partitions in fstab file with the following options: auto,user,exec,rw,suid,dev However, now when i boot, i see that there are two partitions already mounted as earlier and there are two more in the Places menu. I am not able to mount them since they are already mounted. And I still can't create any files in those partitions.

Ubuntu :: Can't Write To A Partition That Was Created During Installation

Mar 4, 2010

I just finished installing Karmic Koala on my computer a little while ago... and I chose to partition the drive manually. My computer has 2 hard drives:

Here's the HDD which boots first and has Grub and Ubuntu on it:

[URL]

And my second HDD which has Windows and a backup partition called "datas":

[URL]

And here's a copy of my /etc/fstab file:

Code:

# /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
# devices that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).

[code]....

The ext3 partition on the 250GB drive called "datas" is an old partition that I created while I was still using Intrepid... and it works just fine. However the partition called "archives", which I created during the installation of Karmic, doesn't seem to work properly. For some reason I can't write any files or folders on it. Why is that?

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Write On New Partitions?

Mar 15, 2010

I am using Ubuntu 9.04 on a Sony Vaio. Because when I installed it I was new in Linux, I messed up with the partitions and I have lots of unused logical partitions in my extended one.

I have used Gparted to delete a number of partitions and create a new, bigger one (ext3, logical), within the Linux extended partition I have

well, first of all I do not understand why it created partitions that are not mounted, that is I can only access them typing my password and they got automatically unmounted as I restart the computer

but the worse is that I cannot write on it! I completely deleted the previous partitions but, when I open it, there is still a folder "lost and found" that I am not allowed to open (+_+) and when I drag anything into the window it says "error" that is I cannot write anything on an empty partition...

Ubuntu Installation :: Sony Vaio Z - Unable To Write Grub Loader On HD

Mar 27, 2010

I got a new Sony Vaio Z and try to install Ubuntu on it. The laptop has got two 64 GB SSDs setup as a RAID 0 array. [URL]. As the configuration is done in the BIOS, I assume it's hardware RAID. [URL]. The problem is that - no matter what I try - the installers are unable to write the GRUB loader on the hard disk. I tried both, standard and alternate installer (9.10 / 64 bit), and both failed at that point. Not a really error message, it just says "cannot write GRUB boot loader".

I also tried two different scenarios:
- Ubuntu beside Windows (shrinked the partition for that)
- Ubuntu on the empty RAID

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Format Partition In 8.04 LTS?

May 11, 2010

I have a Dell mini 9 with a 16GB SSD. At one time I had Hackintoshed it to run OS X. Went back to original OS(Ubuntu 8.04 LTS). Had some issues installing 8.04, apparently MBR was lost, or corrupted, so had to re-install grub and was able to complete the install. The issue is under partition ed. it shows dev/sda1 flagged as boot, with a yellow triangle, file system unknown, size 23.5 MB. When you double click the partition it shows status as unmounted, reason 1. file system damaged, 2. file system unknown to gparted, 3. no file system available (unformated). So I decided to try to formate the partition with ext2, or ext3 it fails with no detailed info. as to why it has failed. There is also no swap partition showing up? why this partition seems to be untouchable? When you right click the partition the options are delete, format, and manage flags. I am afraid to delete partition as this is flagged with boot, and cannot format.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Uninstall 10.10 For Re-installation On New Partition

Apr 26, 2011

I recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 (to make me do more work by taking away the distractions of Windows games etc) but for some reason it decided to install on a really small partition even though I left everything as default and so after about 1 day of using it and installing some programs it keeps warning me "There is only 11mb free space!" etc. and everything runs really slow because of this.

So I am wanting to uninstall ubuntu and grub so I can reinstall them but I don't know how to uninstall. In win7 if I go into Computer>Manage>Storage>Disk Management, there is no Ubuntu partition, just the 1TB partition that win7 is on, so I can't go about the "deleting the partition" method that people have given as a solution on this and other forums.

Ubuntu Installation :: O/S Grub - Unable To Mount Win Partition

Mar 22, 2010

had a dual O/S win Vista 64bit & unbuntu 9.10 64bit.

1. Had a virus on my Win vista side, anti virus could help (virus kept replicating itself - to halt all progs from running).
2. In the End Win Vista would start & was only used Unbuntu for about 2 days.
3. Tried to repair Win Vista, but noting worked.
4. Couldn't mount Win partition through unbuntu either - needed to copy some files across.
5. Eventually formatted Win partition side & re-installed Win Vista 64bit.
6. The problem now is that the grub option to select the O/S choice isn't there, thus i can't use Linux.
6b. The computer loads only Win vista 64bit (Like there usn't a Linux)
7.Checked at the disk management prog - could see my linux space but have no access.
8. Used a live Linux cd to access linux partition, just to check - it worked.
9. how can i acccess the Linux O/S as normal?

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Read Partition Table (10.04)

May 1, 2010

I'm trying to install Ubuntu Linux 10.04 on my computer with following specs:

ASUS P5KR Mobo
HIS 2600XT GFX
160 GB Hitachi Harddisk (SATA)
500 GB Hitachi Harddisk (SATA) - Only for Data.

The 160 GB Harddisk is currently split into 3 main partitions: i) 200 MB created by Win7 setup.

1) Windows 7

2) Leopard OSX

3) Partition formatted in Leopard as Journal which is empty, meaning I can convert this if I want and onto which I will install Ubuntu.

My problem is that despite booting up fine, installer starting and working fine, it cannot however detect my partition table, it thinks its unallocated.

The funny thing is that I can mount the partitions and view the data but the installer however can't see it.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Create A 17th Partition?

Jun 23, 2010

So I was just partitioning my hard disk to get it ready for installation of multiple Linux distributions and that's where it happened. I booted up my notebook using an Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Live CD and used GParted to partition my hard disk.

First, I created an extended partition that would cover my whole hard disk (don't worry, I backed-up everything twice and stored it on my server). Then, I decided to skip the first GiB of my hard disk and started creating multiple ext4 partitions (10 GiB each) and labelled them so I'll be able to tell which partition contains which distribution later on. When I was satisfied with the result, I created multiple 100 MiB ext4 partitions at the very beginning of my hard disk (the first GiB of unallocated space, remember?) which I'm planning to mount as boot partitions for each distribution. But, when I successfully created 16 logical partitions in total, GParted refused to create a 17th partition, let alone an 18th and so on...

Now my question is: is GParted unable to create more than 16 partitions on a single hard disk, or is it a known fact that an extended partition cannot contain more than 16 partitions (so that it would be wrong to blame GParted for this). So, is it possible for me to create more than 16 partitions using a work-around or manually partition my hard disk using the terminal, or should I not create as much partitions on my hard disk?

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Is Unable To Find Partition

Oct 4, 2010

I have a 9.10 ubuntu desktop on a tower (bought 2004) working fine, and wanted to add a 10.4 server on an additional partition. After install, I stated grub may be newly written, as the list of os was fine. After reboot I got "grub rescue>" I managed to get the system working again, and now I have a grub2 menu list stating correct entries. But when I select the server entry the boot fails telling "disk not found" (The UUID of the partition given is correct, and also shown when accessing the partition from the 9.10 desktop (this needs an additional authentification when mounting) grub shell command ls does not show the partition, all other tools (life-CD, working installation, gparted etc.) do show it normally, I cannot find any difference. The partition is on the beginning of the disk

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Boot Into New Drive - No Partition Table

Apr 2, 2010

I'm upgrading from a 250GB drive to a 500GB drive. I booted into the live-CD, ran gparted and created the necessary partitions:

/dev/sda1 ext4 /
/dev/sda2 swap
/dev/sda3 ext4 /home

then I used dd to transfer data from the old drive to the new drive. Now I am unable to boot into the new drive. I tried to boot again from the live-CD but fdisk reports that the drive has no partition table. I can still mount the devices (e.g. mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/sda3) and I can see all the files. But without a partition table, I can't set one partition to be bootable. Why doesn't gparted create a partition table? it created the filesystems just fine. how do I boot into the new disk? What do I have to do to make grub handle the new disk?

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Resize Partition With Gparted On Live CD?

Feb 17, 2011

I recently got new hard drives for more space and copied all my old drives onto this one (everything mirrored, no problems)The thing is, when I first setup my Ubuntu, I only allotted like 20GB because of space.Now that I have new hard drives, I wanted to give it more space, roughly double it to 50gb.The problem is, I am unable to resize it.I have booted into the Ubuntu Live CD, and started Gparted. I see all my stuff there, including the unallocated space next to my ubuntu partition (I left it so i could fill it when I expanded the partition)

The problem is, I am unable to make it larger. I right click, click on resize/move, but when I do, it just shows that I'm at my maximum size for that partition, I can only shrink it.so my question is, how in the world can I extend that partition into the unallocated space?I've tried formatting the unallocated space to ext3 to try and merge it, no success.I tried moving my ubuntu partition all the way to the right (end of the disk) so maybe I could extend it to the left, nothing

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Re-partition HD On Presario CQ62-225NR

May 10, 2011

Last year, I bought a Presario CQ62-225NR running 64 bit Windows 7 Home Premium. With the recent release of Natty, Ive decided to take the plunge and try out the Unity interface. In preparing the hard drive for dual booting Ubuntu, I shrunk the C: Windows partition using Disk Manager and deleted the D: RECOVERY partition.

The 200mb hidden SYSTEM boot partition and the 100mb E: HP_TOOLS partition were untouched.

So far so good. I now have an unallocated block of free space roughly 140 GB in size between the Windows Partition and HP_TOOLS partition. Disk Management shows the three remaining partitions to be healthy.

However, after I boot into the Gparted live-CD, Im presented with a small mess. Every partition is lite up with caution signs. A new partition that doesnt appear under Disk Manager has popped up out of nowhere. And all the labels have now been shifted.

In short, before partitioning:

/dev/sda1; ntfs; SYSTEM; 199mb; boot
/dev/sda2; ntfs; [no label]; 286.29gb
/dev/sda3; ntfs; RECOVERY; 11.5gb
/dev/sda4; fat32; HP_TOOLS

[Code].....

I took the precaution of saving a disk image with Clonezilla before starting this adventure. Though the computer can run Windows just fine right now, I may choose to find out soon if the stored image can properly restore everything. Then Ill have another go at repartitioning the HD to get Ubuntu installed. how to avoid the same results?

Ubuntu Installation :: Dell System: Unable To Start Utility Partition

Jun 20, 2010

The system is a Dell 530n. It came preinstalled with Ubuntu 8.04. I didn't care for the way Dell handled its repositories (they don't keep them current) so I installed Ubuntu 10.04.

Now when I select "F12 Boot Options" while the BIOS is bringing things to life, I still get the various boot options, however, when I select "Utility Partition" all I get is "Not found. No boot device available."

For those not familiar, the Dell Utility Partition is a hidden partition that has various utilities to help troubleshoot hardware problems.

What did Ubuntu 10.04 do and how do I fix this?

Debian Installation :: Unable To Make Partition Bootable?

The only thing I can see is that this is an issue with the netinst ISO image from the daily built images. Has anyone seen this or is this a known issue / bug? I don't want to file a bug report if possible but I searched and couldn't find anything on this. I doubt I am the only one who's experienced this so far.
