It say UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME. I also generally pick LILO over GRUB. But I've done both. Besides don't forget I formatted in Partition Magic with the same error without even installing anything. My BIOS, for the hard drive, has Type Auto with LBA Mode: Supported, Block Mode: 16 Sectors, PIO Mode: Mode 4, Ultra DMA: Mode 5, Cable Detected 80 Conductor. It also has 200GB as maximum capacity. I can change the type to User which allows me to change the LBA/Large Mode to Auto or Disabled, Block Mode to Auto or Disabled, PIO Mode to Auto or 0-4, DMA Mode to Auto or a list of other selections (don't feel like typing out unless needed), or S.M.A.R.T. to Auto, Enabled, or Disabled. What do you think?
