i wanted to install redhat 7.3 in the same hard disk alongside xp.i had 9.84 gb of unalocated space in my 120 gb hard disk. i was trying to install it from a dvd ( linux fifth edition by peterson,the complete reference)but when i booted ,it just hanged halfway.( instaling red hat linux window ) .then i used microsoft virtual pc 2004 and everything went well until i selected the automatic partition choice.
and i got thisERROR:
THE PARTITION TABLE ON DEVICE HDA WAS UNREADABLE.TO CREATE NEW PARTITION IT MUST BE INITIALISED,CAUSING THE LOSS OF ALL DATA ON THIS DRIVE.
wat now? am completely new to linux. how can i install redhat without losing any data.
my drive info->c:drive=12.52 gb
unallocated space=9.84 gb
e:drive =26 gb
