Can not install with XP, getting Error.
When trying to install Mandrake 9.1 with XP I get the error: Drive too fragmented to continue install. Quit install and run windows defrag. I did this (several times), and I get the same error. I have installed the same OS before and no probem. Can I make Linux install?
thanks, between you and the Admin at work
A unix admin here at work, told me the same thing. The space has to be continuous on the hardrive. I have partition magic. He told me to make a "blank" Partition and try to install. I did this before, and it worked. What I did not like about, it was... Linux will not install on the whole "blank" partition. So, you have a little piece of a hard drive with nothing on it.
He gave me 9.1, because I could not burn the ISO to a cd. But, I can burn his CD to a CD?? Weird. Anyway, he just downloaded 10.1 and is bringing it in tomorrow. I would love to have USB modem support. Hope 10.1 has it.
