While creating partion tabel ... i can see sda as first disk ... where in as i wanted sda to be my local disk that is local system ....
local sytem shows as sdb .... if i install in sda disk system will not boot .....

and the second thing i tried was switch of the storage box ... & install linux on it ... now it show sda as first disk of local system ...
