    Re: gparted doesn't recognize existing partitions

    Hi
    I have the same problem. Xp has installed and now functions without any problems (I did have a 'volume device' detected window pop up at every startup but I reintoduced my xp Disk and it loaded the necessary drivers/ files and so everything works great!) The real problem lies with linux. I have six or seven other partitions (three empty) dedicated to Ubuntu/swap/home partitions, another empty ex3 partition and an empty FAT partition. These were all origionally created under Gparted live cd. Since I changed the motherboard (now its ABIT for intel, the disk was prepared and operated perfectly with AM2 ASUS board) and all these problems have arrived. Windows started with ne reinstallation necessary. Ubuntu refused. I tried to install Ubuntu again and it failed when it tried to prepare the disk for partitioning. PSclos reported there was no available space during an attempted install, and Fedora claimed my volume did not exist! Now Gparted gives the same screen and message as reported by peaople at the start of this thread. How can I reinstall Ubuntu (or any linus for that matter) ?
    Mant thanks for any suggestions

    Same problem here. I have a dual boot (windows x and ubuntu 8.04) and wanted a fresh kubuntu 8.10 install. At the time of manual partition, the application doesn't recognize hda, which has 4 partitions (windows, ubuntu, swap and data).

    I have this problem too. Did anyone ever find a way round? I suppose not, given the deafening silence in here...

    You could try adding all_generic_ide at the end of your boot line in the Ubuntu Live CD.

    Adding all_generic_ide solves this problem. Thanks, Pumalite.

    Re: gparted doesn't recognize existing partitions

    I'm having the opposite problem with Lubuntu 12.04, I have one big ntfs partition and 1 tiny 100mb partition and sees all kinds of non existent partitions, such as fat 32 and sda2 unkown etc.

    I have a single wd 250gb drive.

    Old thread closed.

    @cdoublejj, please start your own thread for your problem giving full details of what you are seeing and what you want to achieve.

    They are not non-existent partitions. They would be hidden partitions associated with Windows and which Windows would not show. I suggest you include a screenshot of Gparted, if this is what is showing your partition layout, with your new post.
