Ubuntu :: Mount The Windows Partition When Using Wubi?

May 25, 2010

Using Ubuntu 10.04 with a Wubi Install. Vista Home Premium is the host. I can access all my partitions and external drives with the exception of my windows partition where Wubi is installed. I have seen some suggestion to go to "places" and click on "host", but there is no "host" listed. My windows install is on sda1 and I believe I need to create a directory for it and then execute a command in the terminal but I have no idea if this correct or what really needs to be done. mount my NTFS windows partition while I am running Ubuntu 10.04 in Wubi.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Wubi - Windows 7 Partition Along With The Lenovo Recovery Partition

Aug 1, 2011

I tried installing Ubuntu 10.04 LTS on my girlfriend's lenovo using a live disc. First we tried it out to show her the wireless would work fine (her previous lenovo was not ubuntu friendly at all). She's interested in keeping her windows 7 partition along with the lenovo recovery partition, so I tried doing a dual boot install. I manually moved the cursors setting the disk space on each partition, and we allowed Ubuntu to do the rest. Much to my dismay, the installation failed.

I've done some reading over the internet, and I think in our case it would be best to use a Wubi installation. We're interested in using 10.04, so where can we find a wubi installer of Ubuntu 10.04?

Also, any ideas why the installation might have failed? The iso was downloaded off the ubuntu main site, and we burned it using infrarecorder.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Use Wubi On Windows Partition?

Aug 1, 2011

I was just curious how many people have succeeded getting a triple boot from simple running boot camp on OS X and install windows 7. Then going to windows 7 partition and running wubi.[URL]... I have a brand new macbook air (one of the ones that just came out) and I'm tempted to try this, but if it doesn't work, then I will sit on my hands a little longer before I try to get the ubuntu on my mba. Anyway, anyone tried this? Especially with a new macbook air?

Ubuntu Installation :: Move Wubi 10.04 Install To Another Windows Partition

Dec 9, 2010

I have a Wubi install of 10.04 in my C: partition. I had given it 20GB of space but over the months my C: has become almost full, so I need to move the Wubi install to another partition (say E. I looked around for instructions on how to do it, but I could only find instructions for grub-legacy (that ask you to modify C:/ubuntu/disks/boot/grub/menu.lst) and not grub2 (which doesn't have menu.lst) used by 10.04.

how to move a 10.04 Wubi install to another partition in Windows is appreciated. Kindly note that I'm not trying to remove Wubi and convert it to an actual installation, but rather simply move it to a different location in Windows.

Debian :: Can't Mount Windows Partition

Sep 10, 2010

I have a dual-boot with Debian and Windows7. I used Synaptic to install the ntfs packages, and Debian detects the windows partition, but when I double click it, it says something like "Failed to mount. Invalid mount option". Now I can mount it and navigate the folders, but ALL folders and files have permissions set to 700, and I can't change the permissions to access any of the files. Sure would be nice to be able to access my windows partition.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Mount/boot Windows Partition?

Mar 19, 2010

Upon trying to boot Windows I got through the GRUB startup selections and then i get stuck at a black screen displaying "Starting Up. . ." That would be no problem, I just boot ubuntu instead and mount the partition to access the programs I'm looking for. Now I get an interesting error message:

"Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 13: ntfs_mst_post_read_fixup: magic: 0x00150000 size: 4096 usa_ofs: 0 usa_count: 1040: Invalid argument Actual VCN (0x15000011d92501) of index buffer is different from expected VCN (0x1). Failed to mount '/dev/sda1': Input/output error NTFS is either inconsistent, or there is a hardware fault, or it's a SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware. In the first case run chkdsk /f on Windows then reboot into Windows twice. The usage of the /f parameter is very important! If the device is a SoftRAID/FakeRAID then first activate it and mount a different device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g. /dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1). Please see the 'dmraid' documentation for more details."

I would run chkdsk in windows if I could, but that's my problem in the first place.

Ubuntu :: Windows Partition Won't Mount Automatically At Startup?

I had to re-install Windows XP because the install was running slow.So, I created another partition using GParted for my personal data and moved my files there and re-installed Windows XP.Now, the Windows partition won't mount automatically.NTFS Configuration Tool shows 0.0GB. So, I have to open up a Terminal window, and issue sudo mount /dev/sda1 /media/Windows and everything is fine.

Ubuntu :: Auto Mount NTFS (windows) Partition?

I have a windows partition on my drive, and I want to access it without having to mount it first, etc. There are just two partitions, windows and Ubuntu. I am running Ubuntu 10.04.1 so I want to mount it on startup. I saw this article: [URL] but I don't know if what it describes will work as it's almost 2 years old. I'm not adverse to commands, in fact would probably prefer those.

Ubuntu :: Mount .disk File From A Previous Wubi Install?

Aug 30, 2010

I had an installation of Ubuntu under windows via wubi, after an update last week it wouldn't boot up at all, I tried everything I could find about how to fix grub, none of which worked, after looking at a working installation of Ubuntu with wubi I realised that my root.disk file had dissapeared.

I gave up and decided to get rid of windows all together, and now have a fresh 'proper' install of Ubuntu, but that root.disk file has turned up in a file called 'found'.

Is there any way I can mount that file in ubuntu to retrive the documents etc that I thought I had lost?

Ubuntu Installation :: Resizing Windows Partition - Install Files On A Non Windows NTFS Partition

Jul 22, 2010

Now however its not letting me resize the Windows partition, mounted or unmounted. It currently occupies the whole disk. I would rather not reinstall the whole thing over again, but I will if I have to. Isnt there an easy way to shrink a Windows partition? I swear Ive done this before and it wasnt this hard. Could it be a problem with the Mint installer that now asks me if I want to unmount my disks before it goes into install mode? On this PC I would like to have

Windows XP
Mint
Ubuntu-Studio
Edubuntu
One of the E17 OSs
Puppy Linux (to create a remix)

I am probably going to put most of the linux partitions on the second laptop drive but I want to install files on a non WIndows NTFS partition.

Ubuntu Installation :: Wubi On D: Partition Doesn't Work?

Jun 13, 2010

I installed Ubuntu 10.04 with WUBI. In the setup wizard in windows, I selected the D partition to install Ubuntu on. It extracted the files, and after a reboot, and selecting Ubuntu, the Ubuntu setup wizzard appeared. After it was done, it rebooted. I selected Ubuntu, and this appeared on my screen:

Code:

booting from (hd0,0)...

And there it stucks! I tried editing C:oot.ini, to let it select the ubuntu files.

My original boot.ini file:

Code:
[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)WINDOWS

[Code].....

I have very little space on my system partition (C:) So, I installed it on D:. I'm using Windows XP Professional SP2.
