Hi guys,

I'm trying to install hardy on a friends machine.dual boot w. xp. the manual partitioner appears to get stuck on 60%, any ideas, I've partitioned the machine already and still only seeing one.

Please help.

I've partitioned the machine already and still only seeing one.Can you explain what you mean by this - it's a bit open to interpretation - do you mean you can only see one partition, despite having pre-partitioned the hard drive?

course- there's one hard drive which has 3 partitions, when you use the livecd it only shows the full vol of 200gb as opposed to the 10gb i set aside for an install.Then try manual to adjust and the manual partitioner would get stuck at 60% checking vol....

I ended up having to do a wubi install and this worked fine.
