Ubuntu :: Non-ntfs Hard-drive - Install Windows?

Apr 18, 2011

Some time ago I reformatted my hard drive to just run Ubuntu. Now I need to install Windows XP but when I put in the install disk it says it can't find a hard drive. I'm guessing this is because the hard drive is formatted to a Linux-specific ext4/extended/linux-swap set-up. The ext4 partition is 71GB and only uses 13GB. I have 57GB free. I can see all this in Gparted but how do I now split that ext4 up and free some space for ntfs partition for Windows? Indeed is this what I should be doing? Obviously I can't unmount the ext4 bit whilst in Ubuntu.

Ultimately I want to do a complete reformat of the hard disk and just install Windows XP for the time being (I'm handing the laptop in for a hardware service).

Hardware :: NTFS - Sharing Hard Drive Between Windows / Ubuntu?

Mar 13, 2009

I've got a SATA drive (formatted as NTFS) I share between an XP machine and an Ubuntu machine. From Ubuntu, I never write to the drive... I only write to it from the XP box. So, I am wondering about a couple of things:

- If I do write to it from the Ubuntu machine, will that create any problems. By that I mean, if I add, rename, edit files from the Ubuntu machine, will that negatively affect anything?

- If, from the Ubuntu machine, I set perms on the files and folders on the drive, how will that affect things when I plug it back into the XP machine?

Ubuntu :: How Do I Clone A Hard Drive To Different Sized Drive

Jun 23, 2010

I am soon going to have to return my intel ssd for replacement. Therefore, I am going to be cloning the 160gb drive to a 320gb drive to keep my system settings while I am waiting for my new drive. I will not change the size of the partitions to fill the 320gb drive. I'll just change the grub settings if I absolutely have to. After that, I am going to have to clone the 320gb drive back to the replacement 160gb drive. Am I going to have problems doing that since I will be going from a larger to a smaller drive?I typically use Clonezilla with the default settings.

Ubuntu :: Clone A Hard Drive Using Dd & Netcat?

Jan 7, 2010

i'm trying to clone a hard drive using dd & netcat.

Quote:

on target:
nc -l -p 1333 |dd of=/dev/sdb
on source:
dd if=/dev/sdb |nc 192.168.0.5 1333

However after a while since the process was initiated I get a

I/O error in filesystem ("....") meta-data dev ...block 0x..... ("xfs_read_buf") error 5 buf count 512 XFS: size check 2 failed

Further digging showed that the target hard drive was less in space by 100 kb. Both are 1 T drives seagte but different models, hence the diff in space maybe.The data on the original drive is only 900 GB.

Ubuntu Installation :: Clone / Expand To New Hard Drive?

Oct 28, 2010

I'm looking to move my 10.04 installation from an 80 GB HD to a 250 GB HD.

Last week, I successfully moved a Windows system from an 80 GB HD to a 320 GB HD using Clonezilla. However, I must have missed a command option, as I wound up with only 80 GB used on the new drive, and the remaining space unused. I used PartedMagic to resize the partition to use the full space, and all is now well.

Back to my Ubuntu move, on the second machine, I currently have three partitions - /, /swap, and /home. I'd like to expand / just a small amount, leave /swap sized as it is, and give most of the drive space to /home (as that is where I am running out of space). I think I have two options:

Option 1: Use Clonezilla to clone the drive (3 partitions), and then use PartedMagic to move/resize the partitions as desired.

Option 2: Use PartedMagic to set up 3 partitions to the sizes I want, then use Clonezilla to copy to the new partitions.

Option 1 seems to be the easier way. But, is there another option, a better way? Perhaps there's a command option in CloneZilla that I'm just not seeing, which would allow me to do the move in one step?

Ubuntu :: Clone A Dual Boot Hard Drive?

Jul 3, 2011

I currently have a 160GB hhd running Ubuntu 11.04 and Windows XP, with the following partition configuration:

sda1 Windows NTFS (primary-active and boot and system)
sda5 Linux Swap (logical)
sda6 Linux Ubuntu ext3 (root)
sda7 Linux Ubuntu ext3 (home)
sda2 other

I have Grub2 installed, which provides me the choice at boot to start either Ubuntu or XP. This currently works fine.

I want to clone this hhd and transfer to a new, larger hhd, and have several questions, since I don't want to make a mistake with something so crtical. 1) Which software is generally considered the safest, most reliable and easiest to use (dd, Gddrescue, Clonezilla, Paragon, Macrum Reflect, Easeus, Drive Image XML, or something else)?

2) Which software will be able to copy and include both operating systems in the partitions to be cloned?

3) Will that software change the booting process or options in the cloned copy in any way? I've read where using Easeus corrupts Grub2 and thus requires re-installing Grub2!

Are there any other concerns, considerations or factors I need to consider in cloning the hhd; e.g. prior formatting an external hhd, and with what file system? I've also read where FAT32 would be the choice, but don't really know for sure.

Hardware :: Can Clone Failing Hard Drive Easily?

Jun 8, 2011

I have a 3 weeks old PC which I've just finished getting set up with Ubuntu 11.04 and W7 in a Virtual Box. Now the drive has started making rumbling noises and doesn't always boot.The engineer from Dell is coming tomorrow to replace the drive, but what can I do about transferring the whole old drive to the new one in full working order, quickly?

I've been using rsync to keep backups of my home folder, so I've got the data side covered. But I don't really want to spend the next couple of weeks re-installing all the software, printers etc all over again. So is there a quick, easy way of replicating the old drive with partitions, VB, etc (I'm not that good at using the terminal) ?

General :: Software Booting - Trying Clone To Another Hard Drive As Back Up

May 8, 2011

I have a mini ITX computer that runs a software that I have been trying to clone to another hard drive as back up. When I do clone it, it is the exact same copy down to every byte. When I try to boot from the cloned hard drive, it starts booting, then displays some text:

Then is says some of the files are not found including a encryption signer key not found.

I do no know the next step I need to take. Is this becasue it is running off a different hard drive? I do not understand a bzImage too well, but does it have anything to do with that file?

What problems if any could come up when cloning from a failing pata to a sata HD? I'd like to make the switch to sata for many reasons if possible. It is indicated that the HP d530 sff here supports both types.

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...

Ubuntu :: Unmountable Ntfs Hard Drive

If I plug it into my imac, it shows doesn't mount either, but in the driveutility it shows up as a fat32.Windows 7 doesn't seem to helpfull as it just says that the drive needs to be formatted.Is there any way to recover my files before I format, or better yet solve this problem without formatting?

Ubuntu :: NTFS USB Hard Drive Unexpectedly Unmounts?

Feb 5, 2010

I recently updated to Kernel 2.6.32.7 available from the: Mainline. The reason I have done this is because it corrects an error that prevents my web-cam from functioning (Microsoft VX-3000). So, with this kernel I have a functioning web-cam *but* I have noticed now that my USB Hard Drive intermittently now unmounts. I am unable to remount the device without rebooting Ubuntu. The drive was mounting dirty but installing NTFSProgs and running NTFSfix was the solution for that. I have disabled power management completely on my machine by editing /etc/default/acpi-support and changing SUSPEND_METHODS to "none" and both ACPI_SLEEP and ACPI_HIBERNATE to false. This seems to have made the USB hard drive take longer before it unmounts but it does still unmount. Also as a GRUB2 boot option I have tried acpi=off but this also disabled my usb keyboard and mouse and my BIOS isn't flexible enough to work around that so I cannot use that option. With these things in mind are there any other avenues I could pursue and things I could try?

Edit: It may not be "unmounting" it just disappears. Also, I could try to whitelist the USB controller in /etc/default/acpi-support if I knew how to find out what it was called but I do not know how to do that.. Yet !

Edit2: I moved the physical plug to another slot where it connects on the computer. If this disconnects again I'll swap out the cable. If it disconnects again.. I'll go buy a huge 1TB internal sATA and call it a day. ~

Ubuntu :: Share NTFS External Hard Drive?

I've been searching for a way to do this with no luck. I've got a 1TB external hard drive I used to share over the network from my Windows desktop -- which is now a Ubuntu desktop.I've tried setting it up as a samba share, and the closest I've gotten is mount error(12): Cannot allocate memory. I've tried the suggestions (editing /etc/security/limits.conf), and that removed the warning I got from testparms but didn't fix the mounting on my mythtv box.

Ubuntu :: Can't Mount Ntfs Partition Located On Other Hard-drive?

Dec 19, 2010

Does someone know how to reconfigure this? I have three hard drives.

1. Sata 1TB. It has Windows xp and ubuntu 10.10 on it
2. old 30G drive. It has ubuntu 10.04 on it
3. Old 120G with ubuntu 10.04

I installed the oses on each drive by disconnecting the others. So each drive has a boot record, and I can choose by pressing F11 at boot. All ubuntus can see and mount the NTFS partition except the one I installed last. It's on the 120G drive.

Ubuntu Installation :: Is Keeping NTFS Hard Drive Still Worth It?

May 14, 2011

It's been about three days since I've made Ubuntu my OS and I'm quite surprised to see, when I tried it first via wubi, that it actually reads NTFS partitions.It made backing up easy for me though now is it still alright that I still keep them NTFS or should I now start converting them to ext4? Except for my external hard drive.and what's the difference with ext3 and ext4? I was shown these options when I tried formatting my hard drive.

My other hard drive has two partitions which was done when I installed windows a few years back..If I would to reformat should I combine these partitions into one and make new partitions via that?

Debian Configuration :: Fdisk And NTFS Hard Drive

I have 2 hard drives both are 278.9GB in a mirror raid 1. Why does 2 partitions show up? Are they referring to each physical hard drive? I want to believe that this is the same partition and not two different physical hard drives since both are in the same 'start' and 'end' range. Is that correct?
