Until now I had 2 NTFS partitions on my harddrive. Now I wanted to install Ubuntu 12.04, so i freed 100GB from the end of my harddrive, created a new ext4 partition, and installed Ubuntu 12.04 on it.
That's how my partitions table look:
/dev/sda1 - 98.81GB NTFS /dev/sda5 - 732.71GB NTFS /dev/sda6 - 100.00GB EXT4
The GRUB has written the data to the harddrive's MBR, however it seems that it can't access the
/dev/sda6/ partition. IT boots up to resuce mode, and when I type
ls I can only see
- Is it because the boot files are on an extended partition? If so, how can I make it a primary partition without reformatting my harddrive?
- If grub support extended partitions, where am I wrong?
