Failed to Mount NTFS Disk of a Modern Windows

To allow Windows and ROSA working correctly on the same computer we recommend to disable "quick start" feature in Windows. To do this, in Windows console launch "powercfg -h off" with administrator provileges In order to force mountin NTFS disk in ROSA you can launch the following command:

 # ntfsfix /dev/<ntfs_partition_name>

"Windows" is Missing from the Boot Menu

The root of this problem usually lies in Windows "quick start"; another possible reason is that you didn't shutdown Windows properly and after that updated kernel or bootloader in ROSA. ROSA bootloader doesn't automatically mount NTFS that is aiting for filesystem consistency check or where the Windows "sleeps". To fix this:

  1. Mount NTFS disk in Dolphin
  2. Update bootloader from console:
 # update-grub2
