I'm an aged (over 30) OS enthusiast. Previously, as a developer in a small work group, I became the sysadmin by default since I was the only developer with a dozen users in a growing AIX environment.

Early Linux adopter, installing Slackware with 30+ floppies. I've installed most variants of Unix, Linux, Plan9, mkLinux, NeXtSTEP 486, BSD/386, NetBSD, FreeBSD, and I'm still waiting on HURD :)

Using Windows, I am limited by Windows. In Unix, I'm only limited by my knowledge of Unix.

comment How to mount GPT nfts partition
You'll need to install the ntfs-3g package. Search for it in your system's packages (you didn't mention which distro/version).

comment Fedore 20 rescue mode from usb stick
You can use any live rescue cd, it doesn't have to be Fedora. /root isn't usually a partition (though it could be), likely a directory on /. You need to know which filesystem to mount, then mount it and clean it. SysRescueCD is fairly stable and robust.
