Old situation and New situation


Hi

I am trying to install an ISO based on Ubuntu, I am wondering that during the creation of the Partition i am seeing Old Situation and New Situation, Can someone let me know what Old Situation means?

In one other system i am seeing that Old situation shows

Creating working directory: /tmp/ramdisk ...OK
Erasing partition table of /dev/sda ...OK
Creating partitions: /dev/sda ...
Disk /dev/sda: 1018 cylinders, 62 heads, 62 sectors/track
Old situation:
Failed
OK
Failed

Old situation refers to the partitioning or storage configuration before modifying it. New situation refers to storage after the modification.

It's not clear to me where the Failed comes from; perhaps something is wrong with your disk. Is the output in your question from a text-based install? If not, can you share a screenshot?
