Vector stalls on Disk partitioning step on Gateway computer
« on: October 29, 2009, 04:30:20 pm »

I am trying to install Vector Linux on a Gateway computer. But it stays on Disk partitioning step for about 15 minutes now. It says "Working" on the bottom of window, and "please wait". How long should I wait? or what else could I do? Frank

Can you post the hardware specs for your computer? Was the computer known to work previously?

Sorry Daniel and Moe.  I went ahead and tried linux boot option and solved that problem, but now I cant get X configured so I may have to post help for that one soon. So I think solved one problem but have a new one. Frank
