toshiba satellite c655d-s5057 slackware install
This is the first time I have tried to install on a sata drive. I have successfully installed on a few thinkpads, and dell latitudes. I purchased this laptop new with windows 7 installed two weeks ago so the hardware works, although I had to remove the HD to format it.
The installation disk started up as I expected it to but when I tried to use cfdisk and fdisk neither was able to open the disk. I also tried the sata.i and scsi.i kernels with the same result.
All the searches both online and on LQ.com for toshiba laptops seemed to be with problems after install. I did find one solved that used huge26, but I do not have any idea what that is.
Any help, suggestions, or direction for reading will be appreciated.
