Want to install Linux 7.3 on a laptop running Windows XP
Posted on 2004-10-02
I want to install Linux 7.3 on my laptop. The laptop is currently running Windows XP. I am using VMWare with linux as the guest operating system, when I get to partitioning, a message appears saying that
"The partition table on device sda was unreadable. To create new partition it must be initialized, causing the loss of all data on the drive."
I choose not to initialize the partition because I don't want to wipe out XP. But when I do, the install ejects the Linux CD and restarts the virtual workstation when it gets to the partitioning.
Anyone know a better way to add Linux to an XP workstation????
