and I installed Ubuntu on D:
but compared with vista in ubuntu I do not see C: partition and only see the D: partition on the ubuntu operating system. How to view the other drive or the partition from the ubuntu operating system. Any help will be great. Thanks in advance.

Hello,
Dsl, I thought it had a tag code in this. Open a terminal and typing
Code:
sudo fdisk-l
Also, remember that when you are trying to type the command in the terminal then you should be the root user, only if you are the root user then you can get the output of the following command. This should be pretty easy to do.

Re: Partition problem with ubuntu

Hello,
This is what I get the output of the command
Code:
Disk / dev / sda: 250.0 GB, 25058350015 bytes
258 heads, 62 sectors / track, 30201 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225380 bytes
Disk ID: 0x4716b705
And also this was in the output
Code:
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/ dev/sda1 1 1698 13621488 27 Unknown
/ dev/sda2 * 1698 16041 115219856 7 HPFS / NTFS
/ dev/sda3 16042 30402 114345208 7 HPFS / NTFS
I really do not know what this is all about, this is confusing me now. IF you can explain me this then it would be great. Thanks in advance.

Re: Partition problem with ubuntu

Hello,
You can not access your partittion C: because you have installed linux in windows. To access normally requires repartitioning the disk and do a real installation. You have two choices, be you partition your disk and you installed linux correctly. Or my favorite operating system that will cost you $ Windows and Linux installed you only as a great operating system. Anyway, I advise you to take the first option. A dual-boot is ideal.
