Unable to install Fedora 14 on my machine

I have been planning to install Fedora 14 from a long time and at last decided to install it on my machine.

When I try to re-initialize my hard disk space of 320 GB, I get an error message. I am not able to install it on my machine.

Here is the error message, which comes up when I try to perform the installation

Error processing drive: pci-0000:00:01.1-scsi-0:0:0:0

38543MB

ATA VBOX HARDISL

This device may need to be reinitialized.

REINITIALIZING WILL CAUSE ALL DATA TO BE LOST!

This action may also be applied to all other disks needing re-initialization.

Any help on this would be appreciated.

  • First of all, the problem, that you are describing is not about installing Fedora on a 320 GB hard drive on your machine.  Your problem details indicate that you are installing Fedora inside a virtual machine with 40 GB virtual hard drive space in VirtualBox.
  • Now that we have established what the REAL situation is here's what I think:
  • The error about reinitializing the hard disk is not actually a problem.  This is because the Fedora installer is seeing the virtual hard drive within the virtual machine.  It is safe to reinitialize the hard drive because it is separate from your PCs actual hard drive.
