After my old hard disk crashed I got to get a new one and decided for a Serial ATA. Now I'm trying to install Fedora 7 on it. The installation itself is no problem but everytime I boot, there are two errors:
mounting local file system . ..... failed
mounting other file system ...... failed
Then Fedora boots as usual. All drives are available but they are all 4 or 5 GB smaller than they should. In windows they got the size they should.
Another problem is when I move some files on my fat partition in windows they aren't available in the same partition in Fedora.
What did I wrong? I can't believe that fedora can't handle S-ATA.
The drive is partitioned like this:
sda1 win partition (for backups) 20 GB
sda2 /root 10 GB
sda3 /swap 1 GB
sda4 /home 45 GB
sdb1 win 5 GB
sdb2 win 5 GB
sdb3 fat 32 partition for moving files from one OS to the other. 10 GB
sdb is a P-ATA (IDE) hard disk
There's also another S-ATA hard disk only used by windows, I think it has nothing to do with my problem but for completeness I got to mention it.
I installed Fedora three times now, before this time I tried with a smaller /home partition and the fat 32 partition also on sda.
So if anyone can tell what's the problem it would be great.
