gparted will read only (Ubuntu installed)
Posted on 2006-11-24
I'm trying to set up my Inspiron 700m to dual-boot both Ubuntu Dapper Drake and Windows XP. Never having used gparted before, I'm at a loss to figure a way around this:
Warning: Unable to open /dev/hdc read-write (Read-only file system). /dev/hdc h as been opened read-only.
Error: Unable to open /dev/hdc - unrecognised disk label.
... in order to create a new partition to install Windows on. Can anyone help me out? Why won't it write? The hard drive in question has an Ultra DMA/ATA-33 interface, if that matters. I read that certain sector sizes aren't supported by gparted, but I have no idea how to find out if that is the problem.
