|I am trying to mount an NTFS partition on my friend's broken laptop with the Ultimate Boot CD (http://ubcd.sourceforge.net/) using Insert and Captive NTFS. It either just hangs when trying to mount or I get the error "cannot stat mountpoint", eg:|
# mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/win -t ntfs -o ro
Mounts the partition fine.
# umount /mnt/win
# mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/win -t captive-ntfs
This it where it either hangs (can be exited with Ctrl&C) or I get:
Captive NTFS v1.1.5. Check etc...
cannot stat /mnt/win
The funny thing is:
# stat /mnt/win
returns the correct output!
I am using the ntoskrnl.exe and ntfs.sys files that are in the laptop's XP home installation (can't say whether it is service packed or not) and have copied them to /var/lib/captive/
The user and group captive have been successfully created.
Running StartCaptive from the insert menu brings up a box correctly listing hda1 as being NTFS and available for read-write mounting.
This is the first time I have had to use captive...has anyone got any ideas?
