Hello everyone.

I have an IDE hard disk which has been formatted into ext4 file format.
I then installed a debian OS onto a partition on the hard disk using the debootstrap program. I did this using debian live USB (which doesn't have debian installer).

The debian OS installed onto the hard disk - but not properly. The gnome shell isn't working and I don't have network access.
GRUB bootloader opens up and boots the debian OS. But then I get a simple command line interface - like it was a server.

To remedy the problem, I want to add files to the installed OS so the gnome shell will open and I'll have network access.
But I'm having trouble accessing the partition.

Firstly, the partition doesn't automatically mount when I boot my live USB.
So I then mount the partition. But I still can't access the filesystem on the partition.
