Error With GParted : Cannot Create Disk Label
After finally getting Puppy to run on an old desktop I was able to assemble out of a couple parts, I was trying to do an installation on a hard disk.
I have the hard disk, a nice 40Gig'er, and it is detected by GParted.
As my title states, though, I was planning to swipe the disk (I got it used), and do a install. However, I need to create a disk label, and when I try to do that, GParted refuses to do anything but give me an error.
I checked it in debug by opening in in the shell, and I found a weird set of errors:
1. "Input/Output Error during read on /dev/hda"
2. "Input/Output Error during write on /dev/hda"
Does anybody have any ideas for me?
(Note: I CANNOT run anything like Ubuntu on this machine. It'd lag like hell. I'd rather have a GParted/Puppy native solution. I'd be willing to try Damn Small Linux, though, if it takes that)
