Fedora Core - Installation Problems

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi All,

I'm trying to install Fedora on a dual-boot with Windows XP Professional.

I have two RAID arrays.

1: IDE RAID 0 - 3x40GB Seagate

2: SATA RAID 0 - 2x160GB Seagate

Both RAID arrays are fine. I intend to install Fedora on the first array, Windows XP is already installed on the first array as well.

I have allocated 20GB of unformatted space for Fedora.

I downloaded Fedora, burned to discs and then I tried to install, works well boots up etc. but when I get to the partitioning bit I get the following error:

Quote:
The partition table on device hda was unreadable. To create new partitions it must be initialized causing the loss of ALL DATA on this drive.

This operation will override any previous installation choices about which drives to ignore.

Would you like to initialize this drive, erasing ALL DATA?
There are then lots of similar pop-ups, however hda (as emboldened above) changes to hdc, hdd, sda and sdb

I tried using partition magic to format the drive using the linux file system, same error message.

I think the installer may be having trouble determining my RAID array, but I'm not sure.

I'm using the latest version of the CD-based fedora, this is the x64 (64-bit) release.

Cheers,

//Xeijin

Hi Xaimus,

sorry for the late reply. I'm using the latest version: http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu.../4/x86_64/iso/ its the 64-bit version, I used the cd version not the DVD ISO.

I don't have a RAID0 setup to try an installation out for myself, but: http://www.linuxcompatible.org/insta...d0_t33701.html

You may also want to try asking on the FedoraForum.
