    Question Can't install Intrepid from HDD

    I am trying to install Kubuntu Intrepid to my Compaq Presario laptop using the HDD install method of downloading the appropriate initrd and vmlinuz files from

    http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dis...ages/hd-media/

    The GRUB entry is:

    title Install Kubuntu
    root (hd0,2)
    kernel /hdinst-vmlinuz vga=normal ramdisk_size=14972 root=/dev/rd/0 rw --
    initrd /hdinst-initrd

    But after "Scanning disks" and starting the partitioner, I get an empty list of partitions (i.e. no partitions indicated). Upon pressing Ctrl+Alt+F4, I get the installer's messages:

    main-menu: INFO: Menu item 'partman-base' selected
    partman: No matching physical volumes found

    I don't understand why this is happening. I have installed upto Intrepid Alpha 6 using this method without any problems. Now with Intrepid final I am not able to do this.

    Can anyone help me with this problem please?

    Jamadagni, did you find a solution to this?

    I too am having the same problem with a Xubuntu Intrepid hdd install.

    Syslog:
    Feb 12 09:30:31 partman: No matching physical volumes found
    Feb 12 09:30:31 partman: Reading all physical volumes. This may take a while...

    But then it just sits there for ages.

    Did not find a solution in Intrepid, but Jaunty does not have this problem.

    Well looks like Jaunty has this problem too. I am trying with Jaunty beta and don't get the partitioner.

    I found bug 297492 in Launchpad and added my comments to it.
