    Post Error Mounting Volume

    Hello,

    I'm a little bit new to ubuntu and I just installed Ububtu 13.04 on my laptop . I have 3 harddrives, 2 of them are working great. the last one isn't.

    If I go to places and select , I get this:

    Unable to access “105 GB Volume”

    Error mounting /dev/sda2 at /media/ubuntu/8AB0F007B0EFF799: Command-line `mount -t "ntfs" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid,uid=999,gid=999,dmas k=0077,fmask=0177" "/dev/sda2" "/media/ubuntu/8AB0F007B0EFF799"' exited with non-zero exit status 14: Windows is hibernated, refused to mount.
    Failed to mount '/dev/sda2': Operation not permitted
    The NTFS partition is in an unsafe state. Please resume and shutdown
    Windows fully (no hibernation or fast restarting), or mount the volume
    read-only with the 'ro' mount option.


    If someone could help me, it would be great.

    Nothing has showed for the command fdisk -l

    for the next command nano /etc/fstab

    overlayfs / overlayfs rw 0 0
    tmpfs /tmp tmpfs nosuid,nodev 0 0

    (I'm actually using the live cd and trying without installation now)

    try;

    sudo fdisk -l

    I take it this is a Windows machine with 3 physical HDD or does windows see 3 partitions on 1 or 2 disks?

    Re: Error Mounting Volume

    Assuming sda2 is a Windows system volume, have you tried doing exactly what the error message tells you? i.e. booting into Windows and fully shutting it down?

    it is a windows machine but after installing ubuntu something went wrong and i couldn't go back to windows .
    I'm using ubuntu via usb . when i reboot without this usb , system shows "Operating system not found" I tried to restore using my windows 8 installation disk , but it is not reading .
    I'm totally stucked with this Operating system not found message .
