So recently I've been having a strange issue where Ubuntu kicks back an error stating there was an "Error mounting "0" " and to press S to skip.

This is what my fstab looks like. Can anyone tell me exactly which lines/entries should be erased without doing any harm so it no longer attempts to mount "0"? enter image description here

The first line under the "proc" mount, where you are mounting /host has something wrong with it. If you notice, the portion that reads defaults,nls=utf8,umask=0222,nosuid,nodev is repeated on the next line. I can't tell from the screen grab if that is truly a separate line or not, but it probably shouldn't be there twice either way.

It should read: /dev/sda2 /host ntfs defaults,nls=utf8,umask=0222,nosuid,nodev 0 0

I use tabs for the whitespace, but any whitespace will do.
