I was going to install Linux Mint 6 using the Live-CD. When I booted and clicked on INSTALL, everything went fine until the Gparted screen.
I have one 320gb hard disk, divided into 3 partitions (/, /home, Windows). The problem is, Gparted can't see anything! It just shows one empty bar, as if there was nothing in my hard disk, and the only option I have is to completely format the hard disk!
That aside, all the rest is working just fine. I cant boot into my windows, my Linux Mint 5, etc., and there is no problem at all.
Does anyone know what might be happening?
When I run Gparted from the terminal, it shows this message:
libparted : 1.8.9
Can't have overlapping partitions.
And when I run fdisk -l /dev/sda it shows:
