Ubuntu: Mounting a drive


I am a new user of Ubuntu. But i am facing a problem now. Just before starting it says that a drive has not been mount yet.

It says:

Wait for continue or click 's' to skip or click 'm' to recover manually

while Ubuntu is starting up, the screen appears with "ubuntu" and below that the exact lines are written like this:

The disk drive for /windows is not ready yet or not present. continue to wait, or Press S to skip mounting or M for maual recovery

and it remains like this until I click 's'. How can I solve this problem?

See below my /etc/fstab:

mehedi@Mehedi:~$ cat /etc/fstab  # /etc/fstab: static file system information.  #  # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a  # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices  # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).  #  # <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>  # / was on /dev/sda1 during installation  UUID=9befcfc0-96e4-45dc-959c-addd5e440498 /               ext4    errors=remount-ro 0       1  # /home was on /dev/sda3 during installation  UUID=f29ebd22-4ccf-4d45-8c57-ad18616e91f5 /home           ext4    defaults        0       2  # /windows was on /dev/sda5 during installation  UUID=381C-CD68  /windows        vfat    utf8,umask=007,gid=46 0       1  # swap was on /dev/sda2 during installation  UUID=6c2d8d89-38d6-4590-9980-279c3d7954bf none            swap    sw              0       0  mehedi@Mehedi:~$   


You can fix this with the following command

sudo -i -e 's/UUID=381C-CD68/#UUID=381C-CD68/g' /etc/fstab  

This will comment out (add a # ) to the front of the line for your windows partiton.

You can fix fstab by re-writing the line.

Post the output of

sudo blkid  

and we can re-write


mehedi@Mehedi:~$ sudo blkid  

[sudo] password for mehedi: /dev/sda1: UUID="9befcfc0-96e4-45dc-959c-addd5e440498" TYPE="ext4" /dev/sda2: UUID="6c2d8d89-38d6-4590-9980-279c3d7954bf" TYPE="swap" /dev/sda3: UUID="f29ebd22-4ccf-4d45-8c57-ad18616e91f5" TYPE="ext4" /dev/sda4: LABEL="Elmesh" UUID="0DA0CAA85371CC88" TYPE="ntfs" mehedi@Mehedi:~$
