View Full Version : Knoppix keeps hiding my partitions

10-13-2004, 10:23 AM
i have knoppix installed on one harddrive and windows installed on another. for some reason, knoppix keeps trying to hide my windows partitions. everytime i run /sbin/lilo -v, it hides my partitions and i don't know how to unhide it. i tried using that partition tool that comes with linux but everytime i try to save my changes, it never does so when i restart, my partitions are hidden again. anyone here know how i can unhide those partitions? thanks.

Try with the last QTPARTED version.

If you right-clic a partition, you can un/hide.

Good Luck

i tried that, and i commit the changes, but as soon as i restart the system to go back into windows, it just goes back to being hidden

I believe you install knoppix onto extended partition which usually caused this problem.
Anyway you could try unhide partition using partition magic.

:D :D

i didn't install into an extended partition. i installed it on a different harddisk in that harddisk's primary partition. i would just like to know how to configure lilo to unhide the partition. can someone help me with that?
