could not detect partitions or filesystems on this drive
I tried to install Fedora 15 onto a notebook recently. However, when it comes to find hard drives, the following messages pop up:
The storage device below may contain data.
(Hard Drive correctly recognized and displayed)
We could not detect partitions or filesystems on this drive.
Are you sure that the disk doesn't contain valuable data?
As I have installed windows XP on the notebook and don't want to lose it, I choose "No,...". Then it prompts to turn off. Why couldn't the Fedora 15 detect the installed XP partitions? If I should give some options when booting?
