Description Henri Ala-Peijari 2007-03-10 16:14:27 UTC
Description of problem:
In an installation running from an IDE drive I also have a SATA drive with an
EXT3 partition. Everything works ok when I boot to Fedora Core 5. When I boot to
Fedora Core 6, I am unable to mount the partition and when I use fdisk /dev/sda
I notice that it shows the parition as type NTFS (ID:7). 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot fedora core 6
2.fdisk /dev/sda --> "p" to print filesystem types, shows wrong filesystem
3.Unable to mount partition
Actual results:
fdisk shows wrong filesystem type, unable to mount

Expected results:
fdisk should show ext3 partition type ID:83

My mistake. Filesystem was ntfs, I didn't realise there was support for ntfs in FC5.
