Ubuntu 9.10 partitioner does not see my XP install Tags: Ubuntu Hard Drives Windows XP Product Last response: December 22, 2009 3:04 PM in Linux/Free BSD Share linuxhero27 December 22, 2009 1:44:12 PM I have a fresh XP installation on my 640gb HDD. When I go to install Ubuntu 9.10 (either directly from the Live CD or from the main disk menu), you would go through the installation menu like normal. Instead of going to the screen with the colored bars that let you configure where and how you want to install Ubuntu, it gets me to the "Prepare Partitions" screen (http://blogs.sun.com/observatory/resource/finalLinuxPar...) but does not show any HDD's or partitions to install to. Any ideas of why this is happening? 640gb SATA, no RAID. More about : ubuntu partitioner install linux_0 December 22, 2009 1:57:07 PM What kind of SATA chipset do you have? Please post your full specs. Semper Fi Ijack December 22, 2009 2:25:50 PM Is it a basic disk or a dynamic disk? Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer linuxhero27 December 22, 2009 3:04:24 PM It is a basic disk. It is a GIGABYTE GA-G31M-ES2L (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...). I resized the XP partition and gave Ubuntu its own, but the blank partitioner stage still appears. Thanks for all the help in advance guys. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
