I just purchased a hp probook 450 which came with pre-installed Windows 10 pro. I shrank the main partition in order to create a ubuntu partition with dual boot (ubuntu 16.04).
This has worked fine so far, until I tried to mount the main partition of my hard drive. The problem with the mount command is that I cannot determine the FS type of the windows partition. I would expect it is NTFS, but now I don't know for sure.
fdisk -l, I know the device file for the partition I want to mount is
/dev/nvme0n1p3, but the
mount command does not work:
> sudo mount -t ntfs -o nls=utf8,umask=0222 /dev/nvme0n1p3 /win NTFS signature is missing. Failed to mount '/dev/nvme0n1p3': Invalid argument The device '/dev/nvme0n1p3' doesn't seem to have a valid NTFS. Maybe the wrong device is used? Or the whole disk instead of a partition (e.g. /dev/sda, not /dev/sda1)? Or the other way around?
I ran multiple commands to try to determine the file system, but without success.
df does not show the partition I want to mount.

fdisk command shows all partitions, but does not display the FS type.

lsblk command shows no FSTYPE for the partition I want to access.

Can anybody help me in mounting this partition ?
