Hard Drive not detected after Fedora III install
Posted 20 January 2005 - 11:11 PM
Although whenever I set the fedora instal cd again, it finds the installation.
Any advice for me? I am royally stuck
i tried to fdisk, no drive detected....
How can I remove it and start over?

By fdisk, do you mean via fdisk from a Windows boot disk, or Linux?
How is the hard drive jumpered? Master primary?
What hard drive is this new one? Make and model?

The Primary Master and Slaves are not detected.... I am not too sure which harddrive it is, I just got the guy at the store to put up one. But he didn`t install the OS.
I managed to delete all linux partitions within linux. I did some more searching and now i think, i understand that windows does not read linux partitions, so that may be one reason...

If you are planning to re-install Linux/Fedora again, let us kno and we will walk you through the installation.
Fedora will install a bootloader (grub or lilo) when it is installed. At some point during the installation, it asks you where to install Grub or Lilo. This overwrites the master boot record (assuming that you picked this option)and allows you to boot Windows or linux. Are you able to boot into Windows now? If not, what version of Windows is currently on the system?
