Description Adam Stroud 2004-05-19 17:04:16 EDT
Description of problem:

When trying to install FC2 on a second HD in a mahcine that has Win2k 
on the first harddrive, I get a message indicating "Unable to align 
partitions".  The message states that another program had generated 
an invalid MBR.  In my case, Win2k is the only program that has 
touched the MBR.  This would not be a huge deal except for the fact 
that FC2 no longer gives you the option to create a boot disk during 
the install.  This rendors FC2 useless and I have to replace the 
Win2k MBR in order to get the machine to boot at all.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Win2k
2.Install FC2
Actual results:
