When I comment out the partition info, then anaconda pauses asks me to run the partitioning utility, and then everything installs exactly how I want it. Or the whole disk instead of a partition (e.g. /dev/hda, not /dev/hda1)? But now it's coming from a CDROM. You can use chkdsk from Windows, or fsck /dev/sda2 to examine the disk. http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-newbie-8/fdisk-unable-to-open-dev-hda-142347/
If not, create it: sudo mkdir /media/disk1Then, mount your partition to it: sudo mount -t ntfs /dev/sda5 /media/disk1 gregorio-magnoJune 2nd, 2008, 04:23 PMThanks so much, it finally worked. at the console (alt+F2), I try 'fdisk /dev/had' with the error "unable to open /dev/hda" . My whole setup is fubar - ubuntu is installed on a couple of logical partitions, and I'm running Grub with XP.
You can also verify that the hda exists and it is assigned to your hard drive by" "sudo lshw" This way you can find the logical name of your hard drive. homey View Public Profile View LQ Blog View Review Entries View HCL Entries Find More Posts by homey 02-04-2004, 06:38 PM #3 andykerouac LQ Newbie Registered: Jan 2004 Posts: It's not the first time I've made this dumb mistake. dstewMay 16th, 2008, 06:32 PMTo specify the file system type, use -t ext3 if it is a Linux system, or -t ntfs or vfat for windows.
