Windows 7: ntfs windows 7

ntfs windows 7

Hello everyone, I do not know how to explain this thing:
I have 2 hard drives from 80 GB on a secondary ide channel and the other of 300 gb on the primary channel. in these 2 hard drives are installed respectively in fat32 windows 2000 and the second hard drive windows xp, vista and other windows 2000 and so far so good ...
The strange thing is that if I start windows 2000 or xp from second hard disk all right but if I start the windows vista (tried also Windows 7) happens to me that the partition of the hard disk starts saying MFT master file table and says invalid descriptor protection / sid correct ...... But I skipped the operating system ... Now I doubt that the problem is caused by formatting ntfs windows 2000 version 5.1 is not compatible with Windows Vista / 7 using ntfs 6.1, which do you think?

thanks

It shouldn't be caused by the file systems in place (whether NTFS or not, or even different versions of NTFS) because the file systems employed are specific to the individual partitions they are installed on.

The issue may be due to the booting method change in Vista/7 (departing from the Ntldr method).

Plenty of other forum members are well versed in multibooting from a given disk. Hopefully someone will chime in. In the meantime you can check out what this tutorial has to offer:

All versions of NTFS are backward compatible with each other. NTFS 5.1 will work well in windows 7.

Starting from Windows NT and onwards to Win 2000, Win XP, Win Vista and Win 7 employ NTFS file system, a very efficient file system useful for very large hard disks. NTFS also provide file system protection for folders and files. Eventhough FAT32 and new exFAT (for large flash drives) are developed in parallel by Microsoft, they do not provide any security and are not robust file systems. Now the flash drives can also be formatted in NTFS.

It is always better to use NTFS filesystems on all the hard disks. Microsoft has provided an easy migration from FAT/FAT32 to NTFS (The reverse can not be done easily). This method can be used even if the FAT32 partition contains operating systems, programs and datafiles. The conversion method is non destructive and all the existing files and folders are not disturbed. For added security a backup may be taken.

To convert FAT/FAT32 to NTFS, open a command prompt in admin mode and type

Convert D: /fs:ntfs

where D: is your FAT/FAT32 partition.

When do you see this NTFS error? Can you post a screenshot of it?

Did you have a look at that dual boot tutorial I linked to?

A digital camera or smartphone snapshot will do fine for a screenshot...
