Linux Mint 6 x64 install problem

Postby marc_c on Sat Feb 07, 2009 5:13 am

I am attempting to install x64 from the LiveCD via the manual partitioning option, however, when the partitioner kicks off it only reflects one of my disks (I have two internal sata drives plus two external usb drives). The partitioner only reflects one of the internal drives, which is not where I want to install. Any ideas?

When the manual partitioner starts up and you see the one drive have you clicked on the drop down box top right where it names the drive, if not do that and it should show your other drives. I have 3 sata and they were all listed there

I think it was just inexplicable errors , as I restarted the computer a couple of times and on a subsequent boot, both internal drives showed up fine and I was able to install the correct drive.
