I know this question gets asked a lot so sorry but i cant work it out as all the tutorials i have seen are for backtrack 3. However i have one HDD and i dont want it to be muliti boot as i will add this HDD into my other pc and then i should be able to boot into it from that one. So i want to format this HDD fully and install BT3. When i go to edit the drive it says "permission denied" so i would like some help
Im using the program in backtack3 i think its called cfdisk or something.
I try too using fdisk but it says "you do not have wright permission"
*This will let you see what is mounted to your PC. and if you slave drived it onto your machine it should come up as HDB. So it will show it somewhat like this /dev/hdb
*Now if you want "cfdisk" that drive. Type this is in Shell Konsole.
cfdisk /dev/hdb <ENTER>
*This will bring up that HDD and all of the partitions in it. MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT WIPE OUT YOUR WINDOWS HDD. SO I WOULD RECOMMEND FOR YOU TO SIMPLY UNPLUG THE POWER TO YOU WINDOWS HDD AND ONLY LEAVING THE POWER TO YOUR BLANK HDD.
Hope this helps. Leniux From Ri
