Redhat problems?

6 posts in this topic

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.

***End***

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.
