I'm trying to mount my Windows drive while running an Arch install on an external drive. However, when I try to mount the partition, it throws
Wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1, missing codepage or helper program.
dmesg | tail gives the following output about it
EXT4-fs (sdb1):VFS:Can't find ext4 filesystem XFS (sdb1): bad magic number XFS (sdb1): SB Validate failed
fdisk tells me
Disk /dev/sdb: 750.2 GB, 750156374016 bytes, 1465149168 sectors Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 4096 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes Disk label type: dos Disk identifier: 0x4e49496f Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sdb1 1979 1424183295 712090658+ 12 Compaq diagnostics Partition 1 does not start on physical sector boundary. /dev/sdb2 1424185344 1465149167 20481912 12 Compaq diagnostics
However, this is the partition that stores all my Windows information. I do not know why it is labeled as diagnostic. gparted shows it as ntfs as well, although it shows the error in this screenshot http://i.imgur.com/pfStwYB.png.
I ran chkdsk and it came up with no errors. After restarting twice, I've somewhat given up.
What should I do to be able to mount this? Do I have to change the partitions over to NTFS from where they are now, even though it works fine under the windows install? Or is there some sort of workaround.
