I have an AMD Dual Opteron setup with two Samsung 160GB SATA drives not setup in RAID, though the motherboard has integrated RAID control.
I've done several searches here, and the results have basically all instructed me to reboot using the WinXP install CD, choose the recovery console, and go from there.
Problem: After choosing the "recovery console" from the WinXP setup screen, I get the error message, "setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in your computer. Make sure and hard disk drives are powered on and properly connected to your computer, and that any bla bla bla."
How can I successfully uninstall? I'm assuming this has something to do with how the partitions are setup? I let Suse 9.1 automatically setup the partitions during install, since I'm a newb.
In file manager, my home device list gives this info:
Hard Disc (hda2) [/] ..............contains /boot, /root, etc.
Hard Disc [sys] .............contains /block, /bus, /class, etc.
As superuser, the Yast2 partitioner gives this information about my hard drives:
device size type start end
/dev/hda 149.0 GB SP1614C 0 19456
/dev/hda1 1.0 GB Linux swap 0 130
/dev/hda2 148.0 GB Linux native / 131 19455
/dev/hdc 149.0 GB SP1614C 0 19456
Thanks a bunch for the help!!
