Gparted Error " No Root file System"
I am trying to install Ubuntu (DVD 6.10) onto a USB drive 'sdb'.
I am given the instruction 'I must mount one partition on the root file system "/"
I try to proceed but any alternative I try I get the error " No Root file System " What is Gparted trying to tell me? How do I proceed?
The automatic format was not clear and I do not wish to loose the existing ntfs data part, so I had to use Partition Magic to set up the above partitions. I then had to choose the 'manual' option in gparted during the Ubuntu install procedure.
I cannot get past this page;-
sdb1 is ntds data so I insert the mount point "/dev/sdb1" (blank is not accepted so this is a guess)
sdb3 is a primary partition for mount point /
sdb4 is a primary partition for /home
sdb5 is a logical partirion for /swap
Is this OK? how do I get over the error and install? Some help would be most appreciated.
