Installation without partitioning was able to work.
What partitioning steps did you do which caused the error?
I had partitioned with disk druid and fdisk with other i/o problems, and my root
partition was approximately 10 gigs.
I repartitioned with windows fdisk and windows partition manager, leaving the
partitions under 1023 cylinders( actual size for this installation of root was
7gig), and the full installation was successfull.
What i/o problems did you have when partitioning?
When Disk Druid or Red Hat's Fdisk partitioned the drives, it seemed to corrupt
the fdisk structure so it was unreadable by either windows or linux, and came
up with the error message I/O error when trying to read the partitioning table
with anything but windows Fdisk.
Would you happen to know what the partition table looked like before it became
No, sorry I don't.
Unfortunately I don't have enough information to really pursue this report.
If you find out anything additional please attach it to the report.
