Trying to install 9.04 on an XPS M1530 (Dell) with an unallocated block of ~20G. The disk has been verified and I have tried pre-formatting the unallocated space to an 18G ext3 and 2G swap and that doesn't help either.
Here is the layout:
Disk /dev/sda: 200.0 GB, 200049647616 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 24321 cylinders, total 390721968 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x3ad50b5e
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 63 64259 32098+ de Dell Utility
/dev/sda3 * 53616640 385476607 165929984 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda4 64260 390719487 195327614 5 Extended
Partition 4 does not end on cylinder boundary.
/dev/sda5 64328 12659219 6297446 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda6 385478656 390719487 2620416 dd Unknown
Any thoughts on getting ubuntu running on here?
Just moved the unallocated space out of the extended partition. Still no luck.
