Topic: Running live CD, cannot mount ntfs
I want to resize the windows (ntfs) partition on an HP laptop and install one or more linux distros. The message I get from Gparted is "cannot mount /dev/hda1, i/o error".
Also, when I choose "eject and reboot" from the shutdown menu, it only ejects. I've tried shutting down from the command line too, and no dice. Just sits there and doesn't respond. Do I need to try another download and iso burn?
Thanks for any and all advice,
