Mandrake 10.1 Error installing on Sony VAIO PCG-FRV31- No hdlists

Hi guys,

This is really odd. I installed Mandrake 10.1 on my dekstop fine, but when iintall it on to my laptop over window xp it says the following error:

An error occurred No hdlists found
So i deleted all my partitions via the Mandrake patition manager an then tried but i get the same error.

I cannont think of why i would have this error.

Any ideas?

Thanks guys.
