Re: Can't mount WinXP partition or boot to it. Will "fixboot" work?

BTW, I think you are correct that the disk
should mount, whether or not the partition is bootable- that is if it
contains a recognizable filesystem.


BTW -- that reminds me to ask the OP;
Let's see the 'mount' command syntax you used?
'mount -t ntfs -o,ro,users /dev/sda' (may work)

I don't like those dmesg errors, but it may be not be as bad it seems
(not sure). I'm pretty sure NTFS needs (specific) module support before
it will mount (or anything else).

I'm going to refresh/renew/update my knowledge as well, from revirewing
those URLs I posted earlier
