Re: P5Q Pro mobo - cannot find sata drive
I have run dmraid -E -r /dev/sdd (this was the device that wasn't being detected) and it now shows up in the installer as a storage device.
I am able to configure the partitions, but then the installer exits saying 'extended partitions cannot be hidden msdos labels'. This asks if I want to file a bug report, or exit.
My /dev/sdd has the following partitions/allocations:
/dev/sdd1 = Vista OS (300GB)
2 = free space (50GB)
3 = NTFS (20GB)
4 = free space (30GB)
Both using all the free space above, and using only the 1st free space allocation give me the above error.
I have checked in windows, and the free spaces above are genuine free spaces - no partitions, msdos or otherwise.
I know this is outside the scope of the original query, but any help appreciated :-)
