Troubleshooting an Windows 7 installation. One tactic is to increase permissions on files/directories ACL's (access control lists) for windows, from within windows, so all system data and drivers etc will be usable by Windows 7 OS, as they should be (long story about how they may have been changed).
Problem: can't use windows to do this, won't start properly.
Can I do this from linux. This is not about ntfs-3g allowing the mapping of existing permissions in windows to users in linux on, say, a linux partition in a dual system.
This is about changing the permissions on ntfs, from linux, so that, next time I boot windows, Windows will use those permissions.
I've read that windows is posix ACL compliant and linux can kind of use those. But I HAVEN't read that you can alter what windows itself will access within its own ntfs ACL's, from a linux system.
