Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 8119
installing from harddisk
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:40:19 EST
After buying a new computer (PIII,Micro Super P6SBA Motherboard)I tried to
install RedHat 6.1 from hard-disk on this computer, it failed. I've
divided my harddisk (Maxtor 13 GB) into 6 partitions. Five partitions of
1.99 GB and one partition of 2.67 GB.
When I start my computer with the bootdisk (boot.img) there are only 2
partitions recognised by the installation program, hda1 and hda2 (extended
partition ?). The installation files are found on neither of these
partitions. After copying the RedHat files to the c-drive it finds them on
hda1. Now I can make it till Diskdruid were after trying to designate a
partition to linux it keeps complaining about the boot being to big or not
having enough disk space to assign.
What partition are you trying to put root on? Is there anyway that you can send
the output from fdisk to me (either DOS fdisk or linux fdisk will be fine)
Closing due to lack of activity.
