Hello all, I'm currently having a problem with my Ubuntu distro. Specifically, the one on my USB drive, which I installed via the method at this URL:
(Backtrack is a security-oriented version of Ubuntu.)
Now I have a 32 GB USB drive, so I figured I'd use 16GB for the installation, and have a 16GB FAT32 partition reserved for all my Windows files, since my Windows can't access Ext2. I can both create and read the partition just fine in Backtrack (Ubuntu). However, when I try to mount it in Windows:
- The "Format Disk" option appears, which is most definitely NOT what I want. I assume it's trying to mount the first partition.
- In "Disk Management", it shows that the last partition is mounted, but that it's in RAW.
Here's my basic partition layout, from memory, in order.
- ~500MB EXT3 partition, which I assume has the bootloader.
- Extended partition, that has a ~13GB EXT3 (Linux files) and a 1.5GB swap.
- ~16GB (rest of the USB) dedicated to my files, in FAT32.
I would really appreciate some help as I often need access to these files in Windows, but would also like to have a Linux distro on my USB. Please let me know if there's any information you are missing!
