hard drive not found in qtparted
im trying to do a dual boot system / vista - backtack
im using this tutorial
www .securitydistro.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=251&Item id=43
ive shrunk my drive (the wrong way round ) but no problem im just trying it out.
so next instructions are boot into backtrack . wich i have done .
as you can see in the tutorial link if you look at qtparted you can see the drives .
well if i open qtparted the only drive i can see is /dev/hdc wich is my pioneer dvdrom with the backtrack disk in it .
whats going on and why are my drives not showing ?
thanks in advance
Your first mistake was not searching the forums and finding out the best method to dual boot. If you had you would have discovered this and you would not be in this predicament.
Make sure you read the trans script and the notes as there are a few changes here
ive got my drive back to normal was easy enough in vista . but i think ill give that video tut a mis . it may be easy for someone with good pc knowledge but im not risking my new laptop . ii think ill just take it somewhere to someone with more pc knowledge .
theres a lot more involved in that tut than the one i had the link for .
Just copy the commands. I'll be REALLY honest. If your not up to that dual boot tutorial than you are in for a lot more headaches if your going to use anything besides crackin wep on this distro.
