All partitions in two separate disks (SSD and HDD), are mounted as read only when I to open them in file manager.
P.S : The problem is not related to a windows installation.

Welcome to ask.fedora. From what you write, you don't have Windows installed, which simplifies things. Have you specified mount points for these partitions, or do you let your system automount them?

They are auto-mounted, but even when I tried sudo mount, the problem persisted.

You may need to create permanent mount points and entries in /etc/fstab for them. If you do, you can use umask=0000 as one of your mount options to override whatever's making them read only.

I did that, but Fedora wouldn't boot ( Cannot open access to console. Root account is locked ). Perhaps I did something wrong.
