I am trying to reinstall mint, but the installer does not detect the partitions.
I can mount them with nautilus and see them with fdisk.
- Code: Select all
sudo fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 120.0 GB, 120034123776 bytes
240 heads, 63 sectors/track, 15505 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 15120 * 512 = 7741440 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x52835283
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 948 7166848+ 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda2 949 4048 23436000 83 Linux
/dev/sda3 4049 4131 627440 82 Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/sda4 4132 15507 86002560 f W95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/sda5 4132 15506 85985280 7 HPFS/NTFS
Do I have to kill all the partitions and reformat using gparted or is there any other solution?
Background information: I had windows and mint and after reinstalling windows and messing with grub I reached this point that I am not even able to install mint.
