Invalid Flag 0000 of partition table 4
Posted on 1997-03-16
I'm installing linux on a 1.6G IDE hd with Win95 on the first 980M partition. I know this question has been asked and answered already but the answer was insufficient, because I am using RedHat 4.0. After I create 1 500M linux native partition and 1 16M linux swap partition and proceed to the next step in the install one of the virtual terminals has this message
"you must set heads sectors and cylinders. you can do this from the extra menu. warning: invalid flag 0000 of partition table 4 will be corrected by w(rite)"
And after completing the entire install on rebooting
I get this error: Invalid partition table
I've tried just about everything I can think of a good answer to this question would be very much appreciated.
