My first attempt ( alas Newbie as anything ) into Mandrake 6.5 installation has me reeling!
I had configured my desired choices of partitions, then saved them and then I"M ALERTED TO FIND OUT my partition table is corrupted ( to the best of my recollection! )
Upon reattempting to install, I'M AGAIN ALERTED TO FIND THAT MY PARTITION TABLE DOES NOT EXIST!
This is the error message:
" Fdisk error
An error occurred reading the partition table for the block device hda.The error was: No such file or device
Since I only have on drive, I can't even setup a file system or anything!
Have I wiped some data from my hardrive preventing the recognition of the partition table? Or have I screwed my disk?
My specs: ( i don't think I have any SCSI adapters )
HDD: Maxtor 40Gb 5400rpm
Mboard: ASUS A7A266-E K7DDR/SD
Monitor: 17" Acer 77c
Ram: 412 SDRAM pc133
Any help would be very philanthropic and greatly appreciated.
