    It should automatically find the volume. When you see the volume that you want to mount, all you should have to do is open it with a double click. Let me know if you don't see the volume you want to mount and we can go from there.

At a terminal, type:
fdisk -l
as root to see what drives and partitions are on your system. Let's say your partition is /dev/sda1. Next you need a mount point. I like to make and use /sd so type:
mkdir /sd
and to mount it, type:
mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 /sd
and to view what's on the drive, type:
ls /sd

Can't remember the password of my old computer can't acces to nowhere since i can't open my session it's windows 7


What a joke! Remember!
If you just want your data, perhaps you can mount the partition using a LiveCD that mounts vfat/fat32/ntfs partitions, like WattOS?

How to install linux fedora 7, already i am using windows 7, now i want to use dual os's , please tell me how to install linux.


WARNING: I will not be responsible for any data loss that occurs. It is recommended to backup your hard disk to external media before commencing any of these operations. 1. Download and burn the Fedora LiveCD. It is recommended that you use the latest version, Fedora 14, instead of 7, but you can use Version 7 anyways. 2. Boot up with the Fedora LiveCD. Select Install. 3. Follow the instructions displayed onscreen. When you reach the partitioning screen, you will need to resize your Windows partition. Resize it to a reasonable size (1024MB =1GB). Leave at least 5GB for Fedora to install. 4. After resizing, select the "Use Free Disk Space" option, and continue installing. 5. Your system will be installed with Fedora and the GRUB bootloader. The GRUB bootloader will allow you to boot into both Windows and Fedora.
I hope this post helps you. I appreciate your vote very much!

What is the difference between ntfs & fat


This are the difference between the two.

File Allocation Table (FAT): A file system used by MS-DOS and other Windows-based operating systems to organize and manage files. The file allocation table (FAT) is a data structure that Windows creates when you format a volume by using the FAT or FAT32 file systems. Windows stores information about each file in the FAT so that it can retrieve the file later.

NTFS: An advanced file system that provides performance, security, reliability, and advanced features that are not found in any version of FAT. For example, NTFS guarantees volume consistency by using standard transaction logging and recovery techniques. If a system fails, NTFS uses its log file and checkpoint information to restore the consistency of the file system. In Windows 2000 and Windows XP, NTFS also provides advanced features such as file and folder permissions, encryption, disk quotas, and compression.

A disk read error occurred saying Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart


i would like to share few things to u.

1.you can see the vista drives in federa but can't see federa drives on vista.

2. 2ndly if u have burned any thing in the xp cd even a 1 kb file then the bootable disk will get corrupted and from next time u can not use that disk to install xp.

borrow from ur friend and try again keeping above things in mind.

one more thing if u want to use that 20gb then either u have to delete that partion from boot prompt only or u can also do it by partition magic only.

Ubuntu Installation


If your able to see the Windows Setup page, and get as far as your partitions, I would suggest deleting the partitions on the hard drive (make sure you know what your doing before trying this), as Ubuntu is mounted normally on a filesystem which Windows can not read (EXT2/3 for Linux - Fat32 / NTFS for Windows).

Once you have deleted all partitions, you can then create a partition (I'd recommend just clicking Install) and then chose the second option to format (not quick) for NTFS.

This then does a "secure" format of your hard drive, setting you up for a nice stable installation.

Apart from that, why don't you try jumping onto Ubuntuforums.org for Ubuntu Help, since Ubuntu is a much better Operating System (OS) than Windows, and there is a great community for helping people.

Install xp vista linux


If you're trying to install all three operating systems onto the same partition it's creating a conflict, more than likely between Vista and linux. XP and Vista are similar enough and recognize each other, putting them in the same partition is ok, but try setting up another partition to install the linux to. I'm curious as to why you want or need all three on the same machine?

About Linux fedora and XP


Without knowing more about your system, the key rule is to install XP first, then Fedora.
If that doesn't work then it's time to put more partitions on your hard drive, and install the 2 operating systems on different partitions, again, remembering that Windows XP has to be the first installed.
