I just tried installing Mandrake 10,1 Community, and I got this error when I tried to resize my 80 hard drive.
ERROR: Your disk has bad sectors ( manufacturing faults or dying disk).
This situation isn't supported yet.
In windows I ran : chkdsk and Disk Defragmenter but got nowhere.
About a month ago I have MDK 10,1 Community installed but then my system crashed ( ya XP) and I had to reinstall and re format my HD. So I don't know why it says it could be dying disk or manufacturing faults.
