What does the partition table of your system look like?
I've now got my system working be useing FDISK to create partitions but when i
had the problem I had a 6GB primary partition at the beginning of the drive
followed by a 12GB Primary partition, there was then free space and then an 8GB
Partition. The first two Partitions are NTFS5 created by Win2k and the last
partition was unformated. After i had problems i deleted the last partition
leaving only the 2 primary NTFS partitions but still had the same error.
Without more info I can't really pursue this report since we have not ever
encountered this situation.
If you have a similar issue in the future and can give us a partition table
listing please feel free to reopen this issue.
