http://askubuntu.com – (ubuntu 12.10 on HP DV7 i5 with 8GB memory) Yesterday I decided to convert my 522GB Win7 (NTFS) partition to Ext4 since my exposure to Win8 on another laptop had made me a 100% Ubuntu person. This should have been simple. Use Gparted to Shrink the NTFS partition to nothing, create a new partition, format at Ext4 and that's it. After a manual mount it works fine. Problem is that it will not automount. When rebooting I have to hit 'S' twice (not once!) then I can use GParted or Gigolo to mount it. (Files will not manually mount it). In "Disks" Mount options are "nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gvf (HowTos)
