View Full Version : [ubuntu] error partitioning when installing from usb

October 27th, 2008, 07:30 PM
Hey, I'm currently trying to get Ubuntu to install onto my hard drive but for some reason everytime I try to partition I get an error at 15% saying, "The ext3 file system creation in partition #1 of SCSI3 (0,0,0) (sda) failed."

Currently I'm using the Guided - use entire disk method, although I've also tried the manual way and gotten the same results. I used to have the option to split the Windows and Ubuntu partitions but for some reason it's gone now, which is not a problem for me because I don't really want Windows anyway.

currently there's basically nothing on my hard drive, not even an OS so the only way I can run my laptop is by using the live session from the usb.

I used unetbootin to try to install Ubuntu from my usb.
