I am trying to install Ubuntu 9.10 and I am running into a problem during install.
So basically I booted my PC using the Ubuntu CD, I'm in the GUI. On the desktop there's an icon called Install Ubuntu 9.10
, I double-click that and an Install windows pops. Here's a step by step:
1. Choose English, click Forward
2. Choose Region and Zone, click Forward
3. Keep default Keyboard layout, click Forward
4. Now here's the problem, am at Prepare partition
section of the install but the device list is blank/empty.. nothing's there. If I click Forward I get No root file system is defined.
My guess is that Ubuntu doesn't detect my HDD.. Is that possible? I was kinda expecting problems with the sound or webcam drivers, but HDD??
I booted the PC with the latest SystemRescueCD 1.3.2 and I can see my HDD with GParted, I can even partion it with NTFS or EXT3 (However format only works with NTFS, if I tried to format EXT3/4 partions it complains that the HDD is already in use - messed up)
Any help/suggestion are appreciated,
