I have a problem (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/297179/booting-windows-xp-from-live-cds/?p=1639328) and I have the Ubuntu CDROM which I can use to boot Ubuntu and solve the problem with Windows.
When I get into it, I couldn't seem to open the C:\ because it cannot be mounted. I followed the instruction in the box to type the following in the terminal (bold text):
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ mount -t ntfs-3g/dev/sda1/media/S3A2004D001 -o
mount: option requires an argument -- o
Usage: mount -V : print version
mount -h : print this help
mount : list mounted filesystems
mount -l : idem, including volume labels
So far the informational part. Next the mounting.
The command is `mount [-t fstype] something somewhere'.
Details found in /etc/fstab may be omitted.
mount -a [-t|-O] ... : mount all stuff from /etc/fstab
mount device : mount device at the known place
mount directory : mount known device here
mount -t type dev dir : ordinary mount command
Note that one does not really mount a device, one mounts
a filesystem (of the given type) found on the device.
One can also mount an already visible directory tree elsewhere:
mount --bind olddir newdir
or move a subtree:
mount --move olddir newdir
One can change the type of mount containing the directory dir:
mount --make-shared dir
mount --make-slave dir
mount --make-private dir
mount --make-unbindable dir
One can change the type of all the mounts in a mount subtree
containing the directory dir:
mount --make-rshared dir
mount --make-rslave dir
mount --make-rprivate dir
mount --make-runbindable dir
A device can be given by name, say /dev/hda1 or /dev/cdrom,
or by label, using -L label or by uuid, using -U uuid .
Other options: [-nfFrsvw] [-o options] [-p passwdfd].
For many more details, say man 8 mount .
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ mount -t /dev/sda1/media/S3A2004D001 ntfs-3g force 0 0
mount: only root can do that
And end up still unable to mount the drive. Can someone please guide me? I need to rename the boot.ini file and the giveio.sys file.
Win XP Pro SP3
Ubuntu 8.04 LTS
40GB HD (NTFS)
