  1. #1

    Default opensuse 11.2 and gparted dont recognize my hdd

    as i said i was trying to install suse 11.2 and at the begin it says that im not able to add or resize partitions, bacause parted cant read.
    so i stopped and tried gparted and when i started the live cd it says my complete hdd is unallocated but thats not true,
    i have 1 win7 and 2 recovery and 1 data partitions thats 4 total.

    where is the problem?

    You really need to boot a live cd, like Parted Magic and give us the result of

    Code:
    fdisk -l

    im not sure if this is what you need to figure this out

    i opened the terminal in gparted live cd and fdisk -l

    is there a way to save a screenshot or something like this? i wrote it on a piece of paper and then wrote this in here,
    a little complicated

    Device Boot Start End Blocks ID System
    /dev/sda1 x 1 1307 10991904 27 unknown
    /dev/sda2 1307 1320 102400 7 hpfs/ntfs
    /dev/sda3 1320 14356 104719247 7 hpfs/ntfs
    /dev/sda4 10533 60801 403785712 F w95 ext'd
    /dev/sda5 14357 60801 373069431 7 hpfs/ntfs

    hope this helps

    You could copy and paste the full output, If you can't get internet access from your liveCD, paste it in a text editor (kWrite for example).
    Then save it to perhaps a USB stick and copy and paste from there, also if you post it between code tags (use the button with this symbol # ) this makes it a lot better to read.
    Giving advice on partitioning when it may be based on a typo (It's two easy too make a typo or to) is risky.

    Ideally, you should use you mouse to copy and paste the terminal output. Either directly to here, or to a text file that you then save to a usb stick or even to your HD.

    Looking at what you quoted it doesn't look too promising. Actually, I'm struggling to make sense of it, particularly sda4 which looks to have the start and points in reverse.

    You might also be able to take a PrtScreen of the partitioner looking at this, and save the image too.

    If the numbers are correct then partition 4 is overlapping partition 3. I'd say the partitioning on this desk is truly screwed up.

    It would be interesting to find out what windows disk management (or what ever it is called) has to say here, and weather there was a third party partitioning program used by the vendor,and what that may be.
    It does look like a save and repartition situation, but it would be nice to see a copied and pasted fdisk -l output.

    Parted is the program being called for partitioning.(by gparted and YaST)What does this show?

    Code:
    parted -l

    Windows since Vista changed alignment of partitions. This is why parted-2.2 was introduced into ubuntu lucid after freeze as an exception:
