Try to use ext3 or ext2 filesystem, or make partitios beforehand. If you make partitions via terminal, you can use cfdisk, fdisk and mkfs programs.. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cfdisk http://linux.about.com/od/ptn_howto/a/hwtptn06t00.htm http://linux.about.com/od/commands/l/blcmdl8_fdisk.htm http:/...

Strangely this happens about 75% of the time. The other 25% of the time everything starts just fine. ...
