can't dual boot xp and ubuntu on sata2 disk
Hello linuxquestions.org forum members I wonder if you could help me
I've built myself a new computer and it uses a 320gb seagate sata2 hdd which I have installed Windows XP on.
I want to install ubuntu dapper so I can dual boot but during the partitioning phase of the install I can see my hard disk listed but I cannot see any of the ext3 partitions I have setup.
Is there a way of getting around this ?
Whilst testing I managed to install SuSe 10.1 but was informed by the installer that it would not be able to resize or move etc, etc my partitions which I put down as a lack of support for sata drives. SuSe just isn't for me and I miss my Ubuntu....HELP!
I am currently downloading the alternate version of Ubuntu in the hope this will let me install it but just incase it doesn't I'd thought I'd ask for some expert advice.
I have hunted through the forum here and if I have missed a post that would answer my question I do apologise.
