CFDISK crashing - fishmanloveslinux - 12-31-2014 06:13 PM

Hello Yall! I am new to this Distro. I have a machine that is almost 10 years old. Dell Dimension 2300 and the specs are cpu Intel Pentium 4 @ 2.60 Ghz, 256 Mb of RAM, and 13 Gb HDD. Everytime I try to delete and format when I type in cfdisk command it crashes with the error: FATAL ERROR: Bad primary partiton 1: Partiton ends in the fianl partial cylind. I have tried to re-partition this using different things such as G-parted and so on with no success. Can anyone help me with this issue? Thank yall in advance.

Did you try fdisk instead of cfdisk?

Hello.
Sorry for the late response.
Even when Pentium 4 is 10 years old, it is still too young and powerful for this distro. I'm sure you could find more suitable candidates for this machine.

Is it a SATA or IDE harddrive? What controller does your MB have?
