you will get write permissions by using 'sudo'. post the output of 'df -h' command and try sudo fdisk -l again. Casper...

Well I rebooted from the LiveCD and mounted as follows:
unionfs / unionfs rw 0 0
tmpfs /tmp tmpfs nosuid,nodev 0 0
/dev/sda3 /mnt/ ext3 defaults,umask=0 0 0
/dev/sda1 /mnt/ntfs_1 ntfs defaults,umask=0 0 0
/dev/sda5 /mnt/ntfs_2 ntfs defaults,umask=0 0 0
/dev/sdb1 /mnt/ntfs_3 ntfs defaults,umask=0 0 0
/dev/sda4 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/sdb3 swap swap defaults 0 0
Then of course I did: sudo mkdir /mnt/ntfs_1 /mnt/ntfs_2 /mnt/ntfs_3
then I did mount -a and mount -t ext3 /dev/sda3 /mnt/
That works like a charm and now...I did df -h as you asked, this is the output:

did you try to execute 'sudo grub-install /dev/sda' now? post exact error message here, if any.

ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo grub-install /dev/sda
Probing devices to guess BIOS drives. This may take a long time.
Could not find device for /boot: Not found or not a block device.
(Note, I didn't chroot to /mnt/ (but that doesn't work anyway)

thats strange. try recheck option.
sudo grub-install /dev/sda --recheck

Nope same story. I was thinking of re-installing the win bootloader and adding ubuntu to that and then re-install grub from that...rather long process especially since I don't know how to add entries to the windows bootloader..

i dont know why LiveCD is not working. remove BSD GRUB and re-install Ubuntu GRUB using LiveCD.
boot up from Windows Installation CD, select 'repair' and execute 'fixmbr'. this will remove GRUB and machine will Windows by defualt. boot up from Ubuntu LiveCD and execute 'grub-install' again.

You think that will make a difference ? Well...it's worth a shot since windows is the only OS I can boot into anyway...unless I change my primary HDD to my second one..which means it will boot from BSD...

where did you install BSD GRUB? in sda or sdb?
Windows and Ubuntu installed in sda. right? where did you install Ubuntu's GRUB?
- 01-25-2007 #20
BSD didn't ask me where to install it's bootloader it just installed it so I suppose it's on the MBR. I know though that Windows and Ubuntu/GRUB was on sda because I had re-installed grub there just 3 days ago or so...
When I tried formatting BSD's partition so I can do fixmbr with the Windows disk I couldn't delete it. It had a whole block around my whole HDD saying "BAD" which means it infected my whole HDD in some bad way...So I tried formatting the whole of sdb and I couldn't do that via Partition magic..So what me does is I boot from the Ubuntu disk and try installing Ubuntu onto sdb2 while creating partitions but that didn't work either. So I ended up allocating the whole of sdb to Ubuntu (120GB) and that...F I N A L L Y worked! I was worried that my HDD was broken or something...It's not the first time this has happened after installing BSD. I don't think my HDD likes reiser or something I don't know..
All the respect to BSD and its users and I DO believe it's a great OS but to me it is "Break Someone's Drive" No offense just a joke lol...Just doesn't seem to want to work here..
Now at the moment I've got two Ubuntu's installed and I can see both in the GRUB loader (Because the second Ubuntu installed it's own grub of course) So what I'm going to do is boot from my old and customized ubuntu, re-install grub and then delete this Ubuntu and format my partition again so I can add my 70GB music to it that I had lost...Thank God my brother has it on his HDD...
