    Problems installing Mandriva


    Hello guys,

    first of all I should tell you that I am really a noob on Linux, so that you guys don't think I'm totaly retarded. Well, anyway, I have got a huge problem when I am trying to istall Mandriva. First of I choose Language etc. but when I try to partition my harddrive a message is shown "An error has ocoured: no hd-lists". Well... What the heck is a hd-list?

    I have tryed every type of partitioning the disks... So does anyone have a clue what the problem may be?

    Thanks in advance,
    Marcus Olsson

    Check your bios, make sure PnP aware OS is turned off.
