I was using the Snap1-i686 LiveCD to try to install to the HDD of a fresh Asus EEEBox (B202).

The partitioning looks like this:

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1   *           1        5222    41945683+   7  HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda2            5223        5607     3088384   1b  Hidden W95 FAT32
Partition 2 does not end on cylinder boundary.
/dev/sda3            5607       19458   111254528    f  W95 Ext'd (LBA)

There used to be a /dev/sda5 (inside the extended sda3) but I deleted that (from Windows) to be able to install F11.

I started anaconda from the livecd, choose "use free space" and "review and modify existing layout" and got the above error.

I have now deleted /dev/sda3 and now the installation seems to be working.

On my system this bug seems to have been related to the presence of USB storage devices.  I had a USB hub plugged in that would accept the memory cards such as those found in cameras, etc.  Once I unplugged this the install was able to proceed.

This Bug is existing since Fedora 9 - will the Installer ever be fixed? *argh*
