Linux having trouble reading mounted Windows drive
During the Linux install, I did something I perhaps shouldn't have (or so it seems). Under the Windows partition (a FAT32 one), I asked Linux to mount it in /mnt/windows. I made linux the default operating system to boot to, and wrote Grub to the MBR. I did this before and was able to easily switch between the two. This time, however, when I select Windows in GRUB, it simply goes into Linux. I checked the commands and they are normal:
My windows partition is actually called hdc1. I read somewhere something about putting hd2 instead of hd0 and tried it, but that didn't work. Anyway, the problem is not only that Windows doesn't boot, as I could live with that if I could read the files, but Linux doesn't read the files properly! Inside the /mnt/windows directory (the mounted file system), all of my directories are showing as files instead of directories that I can actually enter in Linux - files that nothing can be done with. That is, except for one directory, a directory called WUTemp, which is totally fine (it had a bunch of useless windows update files in it or something). Additionally, the files that aren't directories that were in the root are also fine. Any ideas what is going on here? Thank you so much for the help!
