Topic: Gparted show my NTFS partition as unkown, unable to detect filesystem
My system is a laptop gateway 505, centrino, disco duro 40gb, 512 ram
TO THE PROBLEM
i have windows xp sp2, installed from cd, give all the hard disk when install it, one partition. C.
now, like many people, start searching for a better system than windows, apple still expensive so like a lot of people start trying Linux, i hear of linspire, that lead me to freespire, download the iso and try it, i like it, and all hardware work (in windows have to download 20 files for the basic drivers), so i decided install it to my hard drive.
from the livecd, i select create and manage partitions, that lead me to Gparted, but i cant resize my partition (i want resize my windows partition to create a new for freespire) i read this
in the tabs
partition filesystem size used unused flags
/dev/hda1 (!) unknown 37.25 GiB ----- ----- boot
unallocated unallocated 7.84 MiB ----- -----
i can use windows xp, so the partition exist and is alive, the only issue is just everytime i run the livecd to gparted, when reboot to windows, it check the hard disk with chkdsk and reboot, then work normally
WHAT I TRY
i came to the gparted forums, since neither freespire not linspire talk about it, say double boot is not supported.
i see that the first thing you ask is using the last version, i read that someone with ubuntu have the same problem i have, because early version, freespire have 2.5, so i downloaded the last iso, livecd, check the md5, correct download, burn, i can boot to gparted, but the same problem prevail, exact copy that i post before, unknown, unable to detect filesystem.
i read another post with similar problem, that solved running chkdsk /f from windows, and reboot twice, i did it, but without result.
i practically read all the forum searhing for a similar problem, sadly i found a few without any solving the mine, any help is truly apreciated.
