I used to own a windows-based laptop but I wanted to partition the disk for ubuntu installation. After two weeks of debugging, defragmentation and windows settings, I was still unable to partition the disk. Therefore I backup up and remove the whole windows system for re-partitioning as a whole. I hope it would solve the problem.
Yet in the middle of my ubuntu installation, I tried a few settings then my disk could not response to partition again. Currently my laptop has no operating windows system. Only CD booted ubuntu (try ubuntu option) is available.
In GParted Partition Editor, there is a warning sign on that disk which stated -
Unable to read the contents of this file system! Because of this some operations may be unavailable. The cause might be a missing software package. The following list of of software packages is required for ntfs file system support: ntfsprogs / ntfs-3g.
Is there any way to save the disk and complete the partition? Please tell me if it is a duplicate. I am already exhausted from encountering endless issues these weeks.
Thanks for your understanding.
