During the initial install process with FC2, right after I accept the keyboard set up but, before I choose any partition strategy, I get this warning.
Unable to align partition properly. This probably means that another partitioning tool generated an incorrect partition table because it doesn't have a correct BIOS geometry. It is safe to ignore, but ignoring may cause (fixable) problems with some boot loaders.
I have 2 physical HDD, Drive C: (hda) and Drive D: (hdb). W98 is currently on hda and is 16 GB with 8 GB used. hdb is a new drive and should be clean. I did the fdisk and formatt on with W98 DOS. hdb is 40 GB. I am trying to install FC2 on dev hdb.
The PC I have is a Pentium II 256 meg, 400 mhz system from dell.
Is my problem because W98 DOS did the fdisk and format on dev hdb? Do I need to use the linux fdisk on the drive instead or can I just ignore it and the install will take care of later?
I do not want to have any boot loader problems. The W98 has a couple of applications that cannot be re-installed. I have made a GHOST (from Norton) image backup of everything onto CD's and also have a W98 DOS standalone boot diskette.
