noob questions about mounting drives automatically and autorun.lua

Question

I have tried to follow the tutorial, but no matter how much I try, hard drives will not automount between reboots or hard drive reinsertions. Furthermore, I have tried to write an autorun program at the root directory, but the program just deletes itself when I reboot my computer. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

so from a fresh start, I install OPPM and OpenOS to the same (unnamed) hard drive.

Here is a screenshot of what the df command says after I do so.

after that, I run the mount command on a different hard drive (named bigboi), and it works just fine.

Here's a screenshot of that.

Then, following the tutorial, I cd into the folder that was created and make the autorun program specified.

I wrote it exactly like the tutorial, besides that fact that I am using my own names.

After saving and exiting, I make sure that the file is there, which it is.

But when I take out the drive and reinsert it, the folder is gone, and I am automatically set back to the root directory with no trace of the mounted folder or the autorun program.

This modpack uses OpenComputers-MC1.7.10-1.7.3.1258-universal, as copied and pasted from the actual file name in the mods folder. I hope this is what you were asking for.

Could I see a screenshot of a directory listing of the root directory after the drive is reinserted? I would like to see if the directory is gone.

Well, I tried to turn my computer back on to take a screenshot, but...

I didn't do anything to my computer besides shut it off after taking the screenshots before. I have a chunk loader on top of my computer, as well, so I don't think that would have been the cause of this issue.

Try rebooting the computer. If that doesn't work, craft an Analyzer (if you don't already have one) and Sneak+Click on the computer case. It should show the error.
