Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I was following this: Mount NTFS partition at startup, with non-root user as owner to be able to use permissions with my NTFS partitions without having to change owner to "root". I did what the (accepted) first answer said with all my NTFS partitions. Unfortunately, this also includes the partition on which I have windows installed.

The problem now is that windows doesn't load, it just shows a black screen with a cursor, after the "Starting Windows" screen. Safe mode does the same. However, the windows partition mounts normally on Ubuntu. How do I fix this ?

Additional Info:

  • I have Ubuntu 12.04 LTS installed along with Windows 7, (both 64-bit).
  • I don't have an Installation CD for Windows, I only have the recovery DVDs I created earlier. These will format the entire hard drive if used, and I really, really don't want to do that.
  • Just before using chown and chmod on the Windows partition, Windows was working just fine.
  • I removed the lines I added to /etc/fstab and the problem still exists.
  • This is my Boot-Info in case you need it:
