Main OSX hard drive mounts as read only

I finally got iAtkos to install but it runs really slow. I figured out that when it boots that my disk is mounted as read only


If i boot into single user mode and type

mount -rw -a

it boots and then run faster. Is there anyway to make it do this automatically? so it mount as read/write

Perhaps when you're booting with -s, you're booting the Install image as read only.


That happened to me many of times.


There's a difference.. one says root: and the other says... something else I think also when it loads up, you'll hear the CD spinning madly

I am not sure I understand what you are saying.


It is definitly the hard drive that I am booting, I use the darwin X86 bootloader and iAtkos is installed on an external drive.


When I don't boot -s it runs significantly slower than when I do mount it as read-write


I am just wondering if there is a way to do this automatically.


Also my processor is 1.6 GHz Intel celeron M could this be a reason it runs slow?


I will boot again to see if it indicates the DVD-drive being read only

Root device is mounted read-only

If you want to make modificatons to files
   /sbin/fsck -fy
   /sbin/mount -uw /


Is this better than "mount -rw -a"
