Thread: Unable to mount location: Internal error...

  1. #1

    Default Unable to mount location: Internal error...

    Internal error: no mount object for mountED volume.

    That's the error message I get when I click on the icon for another HD in this machine (1 of 3 HD's, and that one is dedicated to an XP install).

    Any ideas?


    So I just tried to boot XP, and it didn't boot. Something is awry ???

    This doesn't look like a partition table
    Probably you selected the wrong device.

    You need to edit /etc/fstab and add this

    /dev/sdb1 /path_to/mount_point ntfs-3g defaults 0 0

    *The path_to/mount_point is the location you want to have the partition mount to.
    Myself I always create a location at install. For XP I would have /XP

    So you need to create a folder in the tree first and you will need to be root to do that. So lets say you do create a folder in the tree /XP. Your entry will be:

    /dev/sdb1 /XP ntfs-3g defaults 0 0
