Slackware 9.0 & missing partitions


I had to upgrade my harddrive so ended up reinstalling slackware and all i get now is your drive had no valid partitions when tring to install either slackware 9.0 or 8.1 even tried old drive and still same. I had them partitioned as always type 83 and 82 anyone know what me or slack is doing wrong?

Thanks,
Dustan

Welcome to LQ.

Check the jumpers on your hard disk, make sure it's not set to CABLE SELECT. Choose either the MASTER or SLAVE settings depending on your usage.

Hope this helps

No Linux Partitions Detected

Ok will give more details here.

After I do the login and type setup I get the message "No Linux Partitions Detected" and it goes on tot talk about how i need to make some.

I have already made a swap and a native partition in cfdisk and still it says no Linux partitions any ideas I tried redhat and wow its so gui I have no idea what to do it not that I know much about slack but am lost in red hat.

You can use cfdisk to create the partitions first. Just type cfdisk at the prompt and you're on your way
