Auto Mount Windows Partitions in Fedora 14, 13 or 12
While Fedora (14, 13, 12 etc.) detects all windows partitions automatically on the boot, it doesn’t mount them automatically at the boot. You can have them automatically mounted at each boot by simply using ntfs-config. It is an easy to use GUI tool which adds the appropriate tags in /etc/fstab automatically and you don’t have to edit them manually. Here is how to use it. First install it by doing
yum install ntfs-config
Launch it while being root by typing
ntfs-config at the command prompt.
It would automatically detect all your windows partitions and you should see something like this, we would untick the System reserved partition as we don’t need it.
Choose Enable write support for internal device in the screen as shown above. NTFS configuration tool would automatically make the changes for it. When it is done applying the changes click on Close to exit the program. Now your /etc/fstab should have entires like these, depending on the partition(s) you chose:
#Entry for /dev/sdb1 : UUID=29CDFA1227AFD60B /media/Win7 ntfs-3g defaults,locale=en_US.UTF-8 0 0
Thats it, reboot and now your Windows partitions would be mounted automatically. The name for partition mount is usually the drive label, if not it is a random number corresponding to UUID, in effect you can modify the entry above to mount it at a desired location (e.g. /media/Win7)
