Thread: clean install cant get through installation dvd

  1. #1

    Question clean install cant get through installation dvd

    Installing opensuse 11 on one clean hard drive. Everything goes ok untill I get to the grub/boot loader part.

    I always get a "error 22 invalid partition (hd01) (hd01)

    I have gone through almost every option in system repair trying to get the boot loader to install somewhere with no luck.

    what is going on????

    No I took out all other drives for the install and put the one hd on my sata 1 cable. then told the installer to use my entire hardrive for the install during the partition part.

    I wonder if it has something to do with me having a raid controler but not using raid?

    I would try again, use custom partitioning during setup.
    Create
    swap
    /
    /home

    I always leave a fraction of space clear at the end

    your drive will be listed I guess as something like : sda
    you should see grub to be installed to that: sda

    I really can't say about raid.

    You said You disconnected other drives, did You connect them after an install (on a single connected drive)?

    Yea I disconnected them before the the install so its the only drive.

    Was this the primary drive before.

    If it was a slave drive, it may now need to be changed with the switches to let the system know it is now the master drive if no other drives are present.

    I don't know if that is required but I would check and test that first for all the time required

    Yes, it was the primary drive. Before the install I made sure it was set as primary and sata 1 ont he motherboard. So I dont see why this wouldnt work. Its weird....

    OK so I got suse installed. I had to delete all partitions off the drive, then delete /dev/sda. After that I rebooted and took the default install.
