Second Hard disk Instal BackTrack
I cant seem to install BackTrack 2 on a second hard disk.
I have booted from a fresh BT2 cd and following the install hard disk document.
Essentially I have:
1. 20 Gig (C:\ ) With windows
2. 80 Gig (With partition magic partition 4 gigs EXT3) the rest 3 partition NTFS
From a pdf document I downloaded for BT it stated that 3 partitions should be made
From the onset I think I need to create a dual boot menu lilo guy but here is what I am receiving when I am trying to write the 3 partitions on the 2nd hardisk.
/dev/hdb2p1 * 1 98 49360+ 83 Linux
/dev/hdb2p2 99 1091 500472+ 82 Linux swap
/dev/hdb2p3 1092 98 3393936 83 Linux
Calling ioct() to re-read the partion table.
Warning: Re-reading the partition table failed with error 22: Invalid argument.
Thought maybe as its only a warning, I would continue, however when I tried to create a filesystem on the partitions I received the following error.
Could not stat /dev/hdb2p1 --- No such file or directory
The thing is the 3 partitions do not exist in /dev
After some reading, I tried to mknod each of the partitions with no luck. Also read could be a bios limitation on support for large disks..
Anyone can help me out? Basically just want to dual boot my existing windows hardisk and a 2nd hardisk that contains one 4 gig EXT3 partition (start of disk) and has some other NTFS partitions..
