Accessing c:\ from windows
Hello all !
I am trying to access my c: drive from linux.
I have 2 seperate drives
hda - windows
hdb - linux
How would I do this ?
Thanks so much !
please search this site for more information. this gets asked so so many times. search for "mount windows partition" or somethign similar
I tried this
I created the directory /mnt/windows
Then I tried :
mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows
error I got is the following
mount : fs type ntfs not supported by kernel
Any ideas ????
yes, sorry to say it again, but search the site... ntfs is not supported by default, there are many discussions recently about how to use it.
I tried this.
MOUNT -T NTFS /DEV/HDA /MNT/WINDOWS
I still got back that same reponse.
mount: fs type ntfs not supported by kernel
I am running windows 2000 on a seperate hard drive.
Any ideas ?
That means, your kernel doesn't support reading from a NTFS filesystem. To get support, you probably either need to load the module for NTFS or in most cases you have to recompile your kernel with NTFS filesystem support.
But also if you search this site as this is asked all the time, NTFS support in Linux sucks, cause NTFS is closed off, you can usually only read from it if your lucky from within Linux and rarely ever be able to write to it from within Linux as it can cause problems.
Good luck though. Personally I still format my machines with dual boots with FAT32, no problems read or writing to it from Linux.
