    Installation, GAG, GParted and fdisk won't recognize hard drive

    Installation, GParted and fdisk won't recognize hard drive. I got a good deal on an Everex GPC2 TC2512 with the gOS V2 operating system. I initially installed ubuntu and it crashed when I tried running the updates??? I hit the power button and when I re-powered back up ubuntu was gone. I tried to re-install but when I get to step 4 where the installation is supposed to recognize the partitions and hard drive it comes up with nothing. ubuntu live runs fine but when I try to run Gparted it to recognizes nothing. Win '98 fdisk recognizes nothing either. I tried running GAG and it doesn't recognize anything either. All I want to do is format the hard drive and do a fresh install. I have nothing I need saved.

    Thanks in advance,

    Mark

    Get www.killdisk.com to WIPE the drive completely clean and then install Ubuntu from the ALTERATE CD version.

    Good luck.

    Thanks, I'll try it tonight. What exactly is an ALTERATE CD version? I won't be able to install from the .iso disk I initially used?

    Thanks,

    Nope. Killdisk doesn't recognize the hard drive either. It recognizes my external hard drive when I plug it in though. Now what guys?
