To mount an NTFS drive we can also use a disk label only. We can safely change the label from Windows or by using ntfslabel . See Constant UUID on USB install how to rename partitions? Needless to say that by using ntfslabel we can also change a drive's UUID (aka serial number). To avoid negative effects on the UUID dependent Windows file allocation we ...

As muru mentioned, add nofail. But also add a low timeout with something like x-systemd.device-timeout=2, because the default timeout seems to be 90 seconds. Example from my fstab: LABEL="test" /mnt/test ext4 defaults,nofail,x-systemd.device-timeout=4 0 2

I don't know what it is for, but it is a GPT feature. Since the G in GPT stands for GUID (Globally Unique Identifier), the PARTUUIDs might be the GUID of the corresponding GPT partition. The UUID, on the other hand, is from the filesystem. The PARTUUID should remain unchanged if you format the partition to a different filesystem, as long as you don't modify ...

Here's an example from my fstab to mount a 2nd internal drive (it's a legacy Windows drive, hence the mountpoint name and file system type) UUID=01D0465A0EE56520 /media/Win-G ntfs defaults 0 0 Here are the properties for the mount point. Note that root owns it, but other users have read/write/delete permissions.

Follow the steps to mount lvm partitions: In live session, open a terminal Press Ctrl+Alt+T and run: sudo fdisk -l This lists out the partition table of the system and it looked something like this: Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1* 1 4864 39070048+ 83 Linux /dev/sda2 4865 6691 14675377+ 83 LVM2_member ... The next step was to ...

In addition to @Maythux excellent answer, you can also reformat one of the hard drives as the UUID gets set at the formatting stage. What you probably have is two identically factory-formatted drives (extremely rare nowadays but not impossible)… Copy all data to one of the drives before formatting as formatting will wipe the entire drive!

Interesting! There is a way to modify the UUID of ntfs partition by modifying the superblock as documented here. It says that volume serial number is the eight bytes beginning at offset 0x48 in an ntfs formatted drive/partition so, altering it will change the serial number/UUID. To reproduce it: dd if=/dev/sda# of=my_block bs=512 count=1 ghexedite2 ...
