really basic troubleshooting flowchart here. no ntfs signature... what might that be and could we change something so that ntfs-3g no longer sees it as missing...

Id System
7 HPFS/NTFS

Id System
ee GPT


ID ee is not an NTFS signature. ntfs3g wants to see 7 to proceed.

WARNING: GPT (GUID Partition Table) detected on '/dev/sdb'! The util fdisk doesn't support GPT. Use GNU Parted.

Use parted to change the ID & label of the disk to 7, HPFS/NTFS.

OK now looking a little further I see that you ran parted and it said "partition outside the disk."

"Linux GPT Kernel Support

You must include GPT support in kernel in order to use GPT....if you are using Debian or Ubuntu Linux, you need to recompile the kernel. Set CONFIG_EFI_PARTITION to y to compile this feature."

Check your kernel config for

File Systems
Partition Types
[*] Advanced partition selection

[*] EFI GUID Partition support (NEW)


I believe there's also a few other options in there, I do remember "filesystems larger than 1TB" being an option, and you probably don't have that set either. Research for all the options you need to mount a large GPT partition, adjust your kernel config, rebuild and reboot. [it's not that hard] Then once you see it properly in parted, set the label & mount.

hmm...my raid 0 is a 1.5 tb gpt, and ubuntu has no problem seeing it and using it, and i'm running the stock kernel.

if the OP wishes i can rebuild the stock kernel for him, with those features enabled to see if that fixes the problem (just let me know what arch, 32 or 64 bit).

I'm going to try some other approaches and see if they work.

Do you have the same problem using a LiveCD? Download a copy of Knoppix and stick that on a CD, Knoppix can detect nearly anything
