I have dual booted Windows 7 & Ubuntu 14.04 with EasyBCD, i.e. I have installed grub on the Ubuntu root partition & added entry of linux to Windows bootloader using EasyBCD.
So effectively i am using Windows Bootloader to boot into either of them. Working perfectly.
As i already had 4 primary partition on HDD, i converted one of that (NTFS-Windows 500 GB) to Logical using EaseUs Partition, so that around 70GB of uncollected space on HDD could be used.
NOTE: Before that the 500 GB partition was Primary & i was able to see all partition in Gparted. "What i mean to say is all was working properly".
The problem (i.e. after conv. of primary to logical) is i am getting this message after starting Gparted & shows entire partition as Unallocated.
Unable to satisfy all the constraints on the partition $ sudo fdisk -l Disk /dev/sda: 1000.2 GB, 1000204886016 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 121601 cylinders, total 1953525168 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 identifier: 0xe6bfc2a4 Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 * 2048 206847 102400 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT /dev/sda2 206848 427624447 213708800 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT /dev/sda3 427624449 1805438975 688907263+ f W95 Ext'd (LBA) Partition 3 does not start on physical sector boundary. /dev/sda5 427624512 1532823551 552599520 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT /dev/sda6 1532825600 1780301823 123738112 83 Linux /dev/sda7 1780301824 1805438975 12568576 82 Linux swap / Solaris
So what is the cause of this problem.
I know there might be duplicate for this at "Gparted Error" (that was bug probably & was for old version of Ubuntu 13.04) & "fdisk error"
Also, if there is any chance that both errors are related or complementary to each other?
So, is this problem caused because of Sector Size (512 bytes/4096 bytes) or my mistake of converting a Primary partition to logical using EaseUs rather than some of the Ubuntu Tools.
How can i rectify this?
If any further info needed, feel free to ask.
@psusi, sudo parted -l says same as what gparted said. (Unable to satisfy..)
@oldfred, i have started chkdsk, will update you with the same.
(Thanks to both)
@rod smith, I will try your suggestion after i done with chkdsk.Thanks !
