Urgent! | Desperate Need! | Please Assist! | fDisk!
I'm installing an operating system to my hard drive. Microsoft decided to be a prick and wont take my key (which is legal!! I paid 99 bucks for the stupid OS 2 years ago and it wont take the thing!) So I deleted everything, My hard drive is unpartitioned.
I Run fDisk, Set it all up, go to write and it says "read only. You do not have permission to write to this drive" WTF!? Its unpartitioned space! Ofcourse I have permission to write to it!
Am I doing anythign wrong?
Incase your wondering what version, it comes with the slackware distro.
I got it up, went to fdisk
p (nothing there to show, unpartitioned, duh, thats right)
1(I have 81 cylinders, I made it 1-79.)
2(I set up 80-81 cylinders)
82 (for linux swap partition, its the perfect size for my hd I believe)
p (shows everything and it looks good)
w (<Insert Quote from above> It wont let me write to my own disk)
Im like "fuck!" I reboot, go through first processes, type in cfdisk at the command prompt, You do not have permission to write.
Can ANYONE Help me? Maybe the hard drive is supposed to be set up different jumper wise or ribbon wise for linux? Dont think so.. I dont know
Please reply as soon as possible! Rep will be given to all that assist lol
