I have a dual boot configuration with windows 7 and Ubuntu 14.04. I have my Ubuntu installed on a portable drive with 2 partitions. The internal disk also has 2 partitions and have windows on it. When I boot, I always get a unable to mount drive message and once I skip, everything works fine and I can mount the drive after login without an error. How can I rectify this? Please help.

I have run a few commands

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
