    You need to post more info.

    post how or what commands you are using to mount root dir and system dir, in adb do you get su? have you tried adb remount? The more details the more help can be provided, if the tablet isn't rooted then you need to root it.

    Hi thanks for the fast reply , ive used 2 root checking apps both confirmed im rooted ? , i cant install su or super , this is where to problem started , well i can install them but they have no effect as the system dir is r/o , ive tried most of the mounting commands through terminal and adb but to no avail , i cant even get the block location for the system dir ?

    Then you aren't rooted, you need to root your device.
