Can't mount Anti-X partition

#1 Post by oliverjames » Mon May 28, 2018 11:31 am

I installed Anti-X to sda3, put grub in sda3.
Now when I try to configure grub4dos from Puppy the system is not able to mount the Anti-X sda3 partition?

Any suggestions please

If you post your grub4dos contents for antiX we might be able to help

Unfortunately Grub4Dos doesn't see the AntiX partition because the system cannot mount it.

This is a screenshot of the message displayed when trying to mount the Anti-X partition from Puppy. I had the same when trying an Anti-X installation to sda8 so I don't think it's a problem with the hdd.

For the third and last time, post the contents of your puppy grub4dos file. That is controlling the boot process and the entry for antiX might be wrong (which is why it won't mount).
What file type is sda3? ext4?

As the message says, the puppy e2fsck is too old. You could try booting antiX live and fixing that error by running e2fsck from antiX live.

Your grub4dos menu does not show an antiX entry.

Are you trying to boot an installed antiX on sda3 via Puppy's grub?

Possible that e27sck is too old although it successfully checks the sda2 Ext4 partition containing Linux Mint.

Yes I know, as I said Grub4Dos doesn't see AntiX because the system won't mount it.

Yes, I am trying to boot an installed antiX on sda3 via Puppy's grub.
