Arch Linux messed something up with my HDD?
Well, before I had Fedora 14, and I decided to proceed to the next step of my plan to learn more about Linux, Arch, and next will be Slackware, but currently, while installing Arch, I easily got through the the first 3 steps, but with the 4th step, installing packages, it "Crashed" or whatever you'd call it, the setup closed and put me into the Command Prompt, and I tried /arch/setup again and it told me to repartition my HDD. When I tried to Auto-Partition again it said it came across an error and to use /dev/tty to find out what was the cause. After trying a reboot after trying /dev/tty *Permission denied, even as root* I tried doing it all over again and whenever I came to partitioning the Arch Setup menu closed out on me immediately. I've tried putting in the Ubuntu 10.10 disc and it reads it perfectly, but when I try GParted to create a partition it comes across an error as well, so I plan on installing Ubuntu and going back to Arch Linux setup and doing it all over again. It kind of made me panic though, because I heard strange noises coming from my HDD, not the loud sounds of HDD Failure, but... I'm not sure, I know my HDD was perfectly fine before I tried to setup Arch Linux. What happened? It said the installer was buggy but I didn't think I'd come across a bug like it. Oh well, time to try again... If it lets me that is.
