newbie with kubuntu fiesty installer crash needs help
Hello, no answers coming to this query on kubuntuforums - so wondering if someone here could help.
I'm on a dell PC with 2 256kb discs that windows XP interprets as 1 C drive and a smaller D drive which has crashed on an attempted install of feisty kubuntu from live CD downloaded from the official website as an iso.
I had got to the end of the 6 part install package when it picked up an additional external hard drive that I have attached for data backup purposes. An error message showed up and it shut down.
Now when I go through the install system, it no longer gives me the guided and shrink partition, it only asks me which of the 2 discs attached do I want to 'use entire disk' or manual. I'm no longer given the option that I want of shrinking the windows partition down so I can run it as dual boot - which is essential to me.
As I entrusted that this install would be simple I haven't kept detailed notes of what's been happening, as I didn't expect a crash.
Detailed step 4 is:
Guided use entire disk
SCSI1 (0,0,0) (sda) - 250GB ATA SAMSUNG SP2504C
SCSI3 (0,0,0) (sda) - 250GB ATA SAMSUNG SP2504C
Thankfully, when I boot without the live CD, Windows XP appears to be running without any data loss; if that means anything.
