View Full Version : partition table error

I dont know if you're supposed to do this but I tried installing 0.7.5 into free space alongside my slackware install by using the installer to create a new partition, unfortunately the partition it created overlapped an existing one. I was able to boot into slack and managed fix it with fdisk, after both qparted and cfdisk failed.
If you're only supposed to create partitions inside an existing one (which works fine) or if this is allowed then I think I found a bug.

I face the same problem, I have a disk with an NTFS partition, a Fat32 partition, and a reiserfs, which was erased to install PC-BSD instead. The begining of the FFS overlap the end of my Fat32.
I run cfdisk from /stand/sysinstall and I found that the disk geometry was wrong. Then I check my BIOS configuration to discover that my disk was setup as [AUTO] or [CHS]. I change the value to [LBA] after remove the FFS. Then I reinstall PC-BSD just fine.
Just my 2 cents: the two win partitions (NTFS/FAT32) were mounted in the same mount point /usr/home/aukar/ad0
I add a new directory and edit the /etc/fstab and the two partitions were mounted ok. But the icon [Computer] in the desktop refuse to add the new device icon.
I hope was useful, sorry for my crappy english.

I have the same problem and for me it's too late now. I have a 250GB HDD with
two NTFS partitions (one primary at the beggining of the disk, 10Gb, and another one, logical, at the end of the disk, 100GB).
I tried to install PC-BSD in the free space between, by creating a new partition, but the stupid (i don't know how else to call it :( ) installer created the partition over my 100 GB NTFS. So now my data's gone... i'm attempting recovery, but no luck so far..
So... anybody who wants to test this... take care and lotsa good luck :twisted:
