I have a copy of redhat 7.1. I was wounding if any of you, ever had
this problem before? I ran into trouble when I was uninstalling
redhat and I lost power and restarted. When I got back in to the redhat's
installation, on the part of Disk Partitioning Setup. It gave me an error.

***As follows****
- An error has occurred - no valid devices were
found on which to create new file systems. Please
check your hardware for the cause of this problem.

Maybe one of you guys has had this problem in the past. All I want to
do is put back a fat32 partition or a NTFS. Well please help if you can,
I'm off now to see if I can find something on this.
Thanx MetadoX

You can do that as well. You should however have gotten a option in your install to partition your disks.

Well, what I wanted to do was uninstall Linux. I ran into some trouble and my computer restarted. Now I can seem to get linux to read the damm partition nor fdiak to read any partition. All I want to do is install windows 2000 back on my system. Help please and thank you ragweed I will try the fdisk /dev/hda tough.

Zapperlink I did but once I clicked on my choose like disk durid or fdisk in would give me the error and shut down. What do you think I should do? I know the harddrive is good it's brand new. Plus it was working with linux installed. It just to a dive on the uninstall.
