View Full Version : [ubuntu] Gparted doesn't recognize partitions

March 31st, 2009, 03:54 PM

I have the Ubuntu 8.10 CD and I tried it in live mode. I have 3 partitions on my laptop and I was able to mount them from Ubuntu. The problem is that when I use Gparted to edit partitions or when I try to install Ubuntu it doesn't recognize such partitions but only the entire hard disk (as free). Any idea?

Have you tried a manual install option when the partioner first shows in the install process? If not, that option would allow you to pick whare ubuntu is installed (also show the existing partitions).

I resolved using cfdisk instead of gparted. Maybe because there were some pending operations from a previous cfdisk session. Thanks!

I have a very similar problem. Yes, I am also going to try cfdisk. Hope it works.
