Having been encouraged that it is possible to install Mandriva on my HP Mini, presently running Windows 7 Starter, I set about doing it. The Mandriva I am installing is a Live Install, off the original Mandriva on a USB stick. Things seem to be going OK until I reach the partitioning portion. Here I elected to have it install on the free space left by Windows. So it went off and started doing its thing and came back with the following:
"Partitioning failed:raw_add: partition table already full."
Whatever all that means. If anyone can help me out, I would appreciate it. Thank you.
