Using the normal GUI interface to mount drives I seem to be having an issue with trying to mount my two sets of raid drives from winBLOWS.

Error mounting /dev/sda1 at /run/media/ghod/347019DF7019A89E: Command-line `mount -t "ntfs" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid,uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=0077,fmask=0177" "/dev/sda1" "/run/media/ghod/347019DF7019A89E"' exited with non-zero exit status 21: ntfs-3g-mount: mount failed: Device or resource busy

Error mounting /dev/md124p1 at /run/media/ghod/347019DF7019A89E: Command-line `mount -t "ntfs" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid,uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=0077,fmask=0177" "/dev/md124p1" "/run/media/ghod/347019DF7019A89E"' exited with non-zero exit status 21: ntfs-3g-mount: mount failed: Permission denied

as you can see I can not mount a single drive or the raid drive.

it asked me for the password and I gave it, yet no dice and this happens with all 4 drive and both raid arrays.

I would like to make this work with the GUI, or I guess I could read the details about raid and edit the partition table

Short answers: Yes I have windows installed on this computer in a dual boot, but that shouldn't matter. The drives are not anything special at all just raid drives not compressed or running any security on them(when in windows). I installed WinBLOWS first XP, on the SATA raid device (it has a boot sector), then I setup the IDE drive as first boot added FEDORA on it and it found the XP install and added it to the boot menu. I can boot XP either by putting the XP drive first OR with the dual boot menu in Fedora. Again none of that should matter from what I am reading. I will have to take a closer look into /etc/fstab and mounting the drives manually since the GUI does not work. This is not a good thing. The GUI shows 6 devices each individual drive and the raid unit. Meaning it sees the device correctly (I think) Also it asks for permission when I try to mount them and then it gives those errors.

do you have windows in dual boot next to your fedora? maybe windows somehow locked the raid drives for security or something similar.

you can try to select 'mount at startup' in the edit mount options for your disks, and see if that does work. note: it will ask for your password in order to get the necessary permissions.
