On several machines that I've upgraded from Natty to Oneiric, I get an error every boot (one for every NTFS partition):
Serious errors were found while checking the disk drive for /windows/c.
Press I to ignore, S to skip mounting, or M for manual recovery
Following the suggestion in this answer, I ran
fsck from the manual recovery shell. I got this output:
fsck from util-linux 2.19.1
fsck: fsck.ntfs: not found
fsck: Error 2 while executing fsck.ntfs for /dev/sda1
I can't find fsck.ntfs, and
command-not-found doesn't help either. How can I make this error go away?
By the way, I've tried booting into Windows (XP) several times, thinking that Windows would repair the filesystems. But apparently Windows thinks the filesysystems are just fine. And it's odd that all NTFS filesystems are affected.
Also, I can work around this problem by dropping to a recovery shell and issuing
mount -a, but for my coworkers' sakes I need unattended boot.
