Knoppix Live CD and Permissions on Windows


I have successfully used a Knoppix Live Boot CD to read the disks of a Windows Computer running XP

I need to move some registry files around to make it boot into XP again, but I get a denied access error when pasting files into a directory.

Can anyone help on this

Can you mount it with read-write access manually?

Also it would depend on version of Knoppix. As CoderMan suggests you mount it read-write. You'd need nfts-3g to be safe.

I have Knoppix 5.1

I also see that the Wins XP comp has a RAID setup

Only Knoppix can read the files - I tried Puppy, with no luck

I am so used to just clicking on an icon on the desktop for stuff to happen - I see that writing in code is necessary to do stuff.

Is that the only way ?

I right clicked on the ntfs drive and tried to click "Change read/write mode" - then it sade "Do you want to change the partition /dev........ (fuseblk) to be writable

Then


"A remount command failed. Maybe there is another process accessing the filesystem already"

Stuck again at the moment

Sorry

Thanks

I tried "mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/(drive) /mnt/ntfs/ "

(drive=name of drive)

"Only root can do that"

It is a RAID setup by the way

The link I gave you had a way to do it.

sudo ntfs-3g /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows -o umask=0,nls=utf8

Sudo ought to give you root privileges.


INFO:
Try command whoami

If it says knoppix then you have to su to root. Then try your mount command.


One knoppix they don't put a password, so sometimes you have to boot to the cd and then open terminal and su to root. Then use passwd to make a password. Then you can use tools that require a password. Only works as long as you are booted you know unless you make a usb or floppy save file.

did you try typing "su" in the command prompt to become the super user (root). And then typing your mount command?

From a terminal you type su (then press the enter key)

You don't type the (then press the enter key) by the way.
