    Default BackTrack 4 installer can't see existing partitions

    Hi.

    I'm trying to install BT4 in dual-boot configuration with Windows 7 x64. Unfortunately installer is not able to find existing NTFS partitions, and appears to think that hdd is empty.

    So I got this: http://www.backtrack-linux.org/images/bt4inst-02.png

    Instead this: http://www.backtrack-linux.org/images/bt4inst-05.png

    By default partitions are not visible in "storage media", but i can mount them and access their content with no problem.

    Could anybody give me suggestion what I need to do?

    Default Re: BackTrack 4 installer can't see existing partitions

    Ok, i found that this bug is reported to ubiquity developers, but nobody is working to fix it, so there is probably no known way to make it work.

    so another question: is it possible to install BT4 from console? Is there how-to similar to this: How to install backtrack 3 final from the shell - Remote Exploit Forums ?(This one is for BT3).
