I have a new laptop that's got both an SSD and an HDD. It's dual booting Windows and Ubuntu. The problem is that I can't seem to get Ubuntu to mount the ext4 partition of the large storage (HDD) drive.

I used the disks application to set up the mount options, and it looks ok to me, but I'm no expert.

When I boot into ubuntu I get the message to "push s to skip mount".

Here's the settings I have-- can anyone advise on what's wrong or how to troubleshoot this?

enter image description here


i mount my hdd's in: /etc/fstab

my root filesystem

UUID=84a8ae47-0504-4b4a-9911-2612c4186ac7 /               ext4    errors=remount-ro 0       1

my ext4 hdd

UUID=623643e8-f7ef-4edc-9c83-7b13c89b002d   /media/Shared   ext4    defaults    0   0

my ntfs hdd

UUID=2EB81EA6B81E6D19  /media/Storage  ntfs-3g  defaults,windows_names,locale=en_US.utf8  0 0

How do I avoid the "S to Skip" message on boot? states that you should add "nobootwait" to the line with "nosuid,nodev..."
