Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 21690
Error Reading The Partition Table on 40GB disk
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:06 EDT
I have Windows ME installed on Dell 4100 with 40GB hard drive and Intel
82801 BA Ultra ATA storage controller. Using Partition Magic 6.0 I created
extended boot, root and swap partitions. When I started the installation
process neither Disk Druid nor fdisk could not read the partition table
issuing the following message:
An error occured reading the partition table for the block device hda
The eeror was: No such file or directory

fdisk is part of the util-linux package; assigning there.
Does this problem still occur with the RHL 7.1 installer? It looks like it might
actually be the installer and not fdisk/disk druid.
Apologies for the unresponsiveness of the previous util-linux packager...
This is a really old bug with no response in almost two years. Closing.
