Wow Oo it's been so long since I posted here xD. Anyways ^^...
I have two hard drives on my comp:
hda 40Gb Seagate (IDE 1 Master, Windows XP, hda1=20Gb partition, hda5=20Gb partition)
hdb 40Gb Maxtor (IDE 1 Slave, nothing there)
I used to run Debian Sarge all fine, but got tired of waiting two long hours to just update to Etch (I reinstall very frequently) so I decided to go for something different.
Gentoo (2006.0): Boots perfectly, and when finishing install, both with LILO and GRUB, goes like: FATAL ERROR, can't install GRUB/LILO.
Alright, so I try Ubuntu...
Ubuntu: Boots perfectly, installs, and when finishing, about 85% if I let it download the language packs or when configuring clock if I skip it, it just stops, does nothing. Waiting 15 min on a 933Mhz/256Mb RAM/52x CD I guess is enough for noticing it isn't responding.
Of course, I'm installing the bootloaders in the MBR of hda (or so I guess that's what the installers are doing), but if Debian can do it fine, why these two can't?
Can anybody tell me what to do in this case then? I want to try those distros on hdb
Any help is appreciated
(Just incase: I have no money, can't buy any PC parts, I'm asking for help with what I have, not with what I don't have / can't get)
