Hi guys,

I m trying to install Linux on my PC. The flavor is mandrake.

The PC configuration is Intel Pentium iv 3.2 GHz with 1 GB ram and 200 GB hard disk.

Whenever I try to install the Linux, I get the following error.

no valid devices were found on which to create new file systems.

Error:

An error has occurred – no valid devices were
found on which to create new file systems.
please check your hardware for the cause of this
problem. 

I previously used windows 98 and 2000 professional and don’t have much experience of working with Linux. I bought this new PC and now want to use Linux as operating system due to its free nature and open source technology.

I am very thankful for the help in this regard.

Take Care.

Hello Simra,

I will be very happy if I can solve your problem by my research solution. Before that, I have to know something about your previous installation process. But don’t worry, my solution will also work. Please do the following as I say: You should install it with SCSI if you prefer VMware. As it is the default type.

But if you prefer FC, then you should go with IDE If this does not work, please do the following: > Manually choose the device > Select yes > Then Find "BusLogic MultiMaster SCSI (BusLogic)" > Select it and install Linux I hope this will work.

Thank you.
