TurnKey Linux Virtual Appliance Library

Using Ubuntu live CD to access TKL drives

essentialhumanservices's picture

I'm trying to set up a data transfer appliance that will let me copy files from customers harddisks before I begin working on their computers. The basic idea is to remove the drive, mount the filesystem (NTFS, HFS, ext3, ext4, whatever), transfer the drive contents to TKL, reinstall the drive and work on the system.

My initial experiments are with Ubuntu Live CD. I've tried 10 and 12 but both systems report my TKL drive as 255MB. CMOS setup reports the drive correctly as 500MB but from Ubuntu Desktop, I can't see the whole drive.

Perhaps I shouldn't have enable LVM when I installed TKL? Any help with this situation is appreciated.
