I think I've messed up something with my partition mount points.
OK, this is the thing. When I have been fresh installing Ubuntu 12.10 from a Live CD, I made all my partitions with ext4 file system format and mounted them at random mount points (now special interest on
/Windows, see it here). After installation complete, I wasn't happy without seeing my partitions appear as shown in a picture at the red "A". As I had them there on my previous older laptop, witch was dual boot alongside with WimXP, and these partitions were NTFS. So I decided to format them back to NTFS. I've labeled these HDD1 and And HDD2. And somehow it become mounted an the directory
/mt/486FFA615D0979A2 seen in this picture at "B" and "C" marks. Despites all that, in general it worked all fine. Until I boot the machine next time, I encountered with the problem explaned here: "How to avoid "S to skip" message on boot?". I did try all the mentioned solutions and none worked in my case. As in my case there in no longer any partition as
Now from here: "Specifying a custom mount point for an empty partition", I found that it may be the better way of having my partitions in a place "A" in this picture. I am willing to reformat these partitions back again to ext4, and mount them in a folder as
/example/HDD2 so I easy and quick access when needed. But I get now very confused what to do next.
! Picture with "A,B,C"
! Picture with 2 Folders Selected (Containing a total of 0 items)
! Picture with Disks-sda1 selected (HDD1,
! Picture with Disks-sda5 selected (HDD2,
! Picture with GParted
! Can't delete folder (directory with 0 items)
I have just deleted the directories using Nautilus as root. Here is the process outcome:

After rebooting the problem "press S to skip" is still here. Will try now updating the Grub2
