unable to access linux after installation on new hard disk.


Hi,

My name is Rajiv. I had very recently installed a new hard drive on my laptop. After installation, I tried to install linux from the CD and followed the instructions. I did not create a partition in the hard drive and carried out the installation procedure. After installation, i tried to start but it would not start...and shows error. I am not sure what I should do ...please instruct me in a step by step procedure to solve the problem

Regards

Rajiv

How do you expect anyone to help you, when you don't provide any useful information? What version/distro of Linux? What hardware? What error(s)? With no information, how can we give you 'step-by-step' instructions??

If you didn't create any partitions on your hard drive, where, exactly, did you install Linux? Create partitions, and do the load again. Otherwise, post some actual details, and perhaps you can get help.
