    Question Can't access Hard Disc Drive Partitions anymore..

    Kali 2.0 USB Persistence installed.
    Working with nomodeset (i.e. it fires up and everything seems working .

    1.) The problem is I can't access my Hard disc partitions on kali. It say Not Mounted but when I try to mount any partition or /dev/sda it says:
    mount /dev/sda
    mount: can't find /dev/sda in /etc/fstab

    What is the reason and solution?

    2.) Another one is that sda2 is read as ext partition, How to fix it?

    Device Boot Start End Sectors Size Id T ype
    /dev/sda1 * 32 263610584 263610553 125.7G 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
    /dev/sda2 263618497 976773056 713154560 340.1G f W95 Ext'd (LBA)
    /dev/sda5 263618560 599379904 335761345 160.1G 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
    /dev/sda6 599379968 976773056 377393089 180G 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT

    3.) How to fix display resolution as am running it with nomodeset and the resolution under display:
    Unknown display
    Resolution : 1024x768
    Resolution : 800x600
    Moreover the Aspect Ratio in both the cases is only 4:3, could it be set to 16:9?
    The Ubuntu way of fixing it by editing Grub is possible in kali? If yes guide me.

    Reinstalled Kali 2.0 and now it reads the HDD partitions as well but it still shows the drive /sda2 as:
    /dev/sda2 263618497 976773056 713154560 340.1G f W95 Ext'd (LBA). it is a HDD partion for God sake and accessible through windows.

    Still have to boot through nomodeset=0 as all installation guides are for kali 1 and installation fails where it says /etc/grub or so. Grub is simply not there. Installing Grub again won't help too.
    So the problem no. 1 and 2 persist.
