as i speak i am using my ubuntu live cd. i am about to install ubuntu 9.10 but i encountered a problem. i had hibernated my windows partition and now i cant perform certain tasks on it. i figure out the problem, i need to remove the hiberfile from the partition to gain access to the partition. i used the code below to perform the function.
sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /media/sda1/ -o remove_hiberfile
if it works you should see something like this:
The disk contains an unclean file system (0, 0).
The file system wasn't safely closed on Windows. Fixing.
