Error in Linux Installation - No devices foundon which to install new file system
I am newbie of newbie's of Linux and I have a machine with Athlon processort, 2 GB ram and Sata 250G hard disk. I have created a partition from it about 150G unformatted and left 80-90G for Current Windows.
Each time I start Linux AS install it errors out just as I select Automatic Partitioning with message " An Error has Occured no devices found on which to install new file system Please check your hardware for the cause of your problem.
Please advise, any help is highly appreciated. Its very discouraging when no help is to be found so something that is so widely talked about ( Linux).
