Title: Having issues trying to install Vector 5.8 SOHO final to Dell 2550.
Post by: Jim_B on December 30, 2007, 02:07:22 am
Live cd boots and runs fine. I used cfdisk to partition my single 36GB scsi drive into (sda1 12GB boot), (sda2,2GB swap) and (sda3, 22GB home) partitions. I used parted to mkfs the boot and home partitions ext2. (why no other filesystem available?). I use the vlliveinstall icon and select the boot and home partitions, then wait. When the cd ejects, the machine reboots and after recognizing and spinning the scsi drive, it hangs. I don't get it.....
