Re: [SOLVED] NTFS drive causing problems at boot.

What do you mean when you say ntfs-3g didn't work. You have to edit fstab to use the ntfs-3g (rather than the ntfs) driver, otherwise it will still use the kernel based ntfs driver rather than the userspace ntfs-3g driver.

Re: [SOLVED] NTFS drive causing problems at boot.

OK, first things first, check your disk order. With the disks connected (I'm assuming it's internal, but if it's external do this twice, once without the ntfs drive connected, and once more with it connected)

sudo fdisk -l
sudo blkid

And post the output.

Not sure what I missed, and I'm not very sure what to do to make this work still. I am probably missing something stupid and obvious, but who knows..

Good job fixing this yourself. Before you make another random change and break something you can't fix, please read the wiki topic on Partitioning, and if you're feeling ambitious also read the topic on File Systems.

Re: [SOLVED] NTFS drive causing problems at boot.

With two drives, I have always just used the UUID's instead of the kernel names.  Though recently I gave all my partitions labels and ahve been using those for the human readability.

Though udev typically names your two hard drives the same thing (ie /dev/sda for your Linux drive and /dev/sdb for your ntfs drive), there is the very good chance that it will not always name these devices persisitently.  Therefore, sometimes you might end up with Linux as sdb and ntfs as sda. 

You already have your UUID's printed above your kernel names in your fstab, Seems like the switch would be super simple.

Re: [SOLVED] NTFS drive causing problems at boot.

UUID = universally unique identifiers
In your fstab, they are already set up to be used.  Just put the respective UUID=xxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxx in place of your /dev/sdX.
