Bt3-installation problems/fresh ntfs 60gig
First off hello, this is my firsts time posting here but I've been following the forums for a good half year now. I really appreciate the fact you guys take time out of your day to help newbie solve issues like this.
So the problem is "Warning: re-reading the partition table failed with error 22: Invalid argument." After following several guides this seemed to get me the furthest.
click KDE menu
here you will get list of all mounted devices
for a hazel free installation it is necessary that you unmount all the physical partitions because by default after booting using live DVD backtrack will mount all partitions.
I am assuming you are using hdc---- (in my case the drive is called hdc1)
p (view partition table)
n (create new partition at this point if you getting error no free sectors delete one of partition(warning:all data would be lost on that partition))
1 (partition 1)
+4200M (size for partition one.its root.storing files,downloaded data)
n (new partition)
+64M (it would be our boot partition)
n (new partition)
+522M (swap partition,double the amount of system RAM)
p (newly created partition table)
t (table for changing system partition id)
3 (that is our swap partition.def set to 83)
82 (making hdc3 partition as swap by changing its id from 83 to 82)
p (check partition table)
w (save changes)
all is well except when i save "Warning: re-reading the partition table failed with error 22: Invalid argument." follows. Googled the error and got a bunch of non-related topics. Any help would be great
WARNING: Re-reading the partition table failed with error 22: Invalid argument.
The kernel still uses the old table.The new table will be used at the next reboot.Syncing disks.
Hope you got the answer
