    Uhm ... the rest of what you said is greek to me. I don't know what HAL is so I am sure I have not messed around with it.
    We could cut a long series of exchanges short if you return the following information to here for us to see and use to formulate advice to you. Open a console window and enter the commands listed below. Use copy/paste to return the whole dialogue here.
    1. Code:
      sudo /sbin/fdisk -l | grep NTFS
      that will tell us if any NTFS partitions are detected by the operating system
    2. Code:
      cat /etc/fstab | grep ntfs
      that will tell us if attempts have been made in fstab to configure mounts for NTFS partitions to mount at boot time
    3. Code:
      sudo mount | grep fuse
      that will tell us if any NTFS partitions are actually mounted and if so, where
      .
    4. Finally -- tell us if the NTFS partition/s are on internal or external drives.



    That might help us to sort it quickly.

    later they are giving advice...sometimes great, sometimes not..

    in order to access any hard drive it is necessary to first "mount" it..
    As stated "I have never encountered such a message.".

    The mount command shows what's already mounted: non danger in doing that.

    Surely swerdna can help you (us) more than me: follow strictly his advice.

    Bye, bye Connaver ... and have fun!
