So tell me what I'm doing wrong here,I install SolydXK and all goes well till the end,it asked me if I wanted to restart and use it.I did ,it did and PXE-E61 Media test failure. So thinking I may have removed the disc too early I reinstall.

But this time I say no,wait till it shows the desktop and shut down,restart to F2,remove disc and check boot order,F10 enter same *$&#^$*$) thing. I freely admit I have no idea. :confused:

Boot the live cd. Does it see the hard drive? From desktop home directory.

Is this a dual/triple quad boot or something?

Looks like you have duplicates ....consider wiping the disk. I tried to find a 32 bit live cd but no luck so far.

I think there is an option in downloading for gpart. delete all the lines, follow instructions to wipe them and then back up a page and mark the hopefully single line with a right click and /.
Some people use a separate home directory partition. It just confuses me so I ignore it. You can always save your home directory if needed.

Good luck,

Jeff

Here is what I get when I try to make the partition. These are 40gb drives I bought the other day,I have loaded Windows 2000 to them but when I try Linux I get this error.

I'm not sure what system you are using, but suggest you use a more user friendly linex distribution.
I would try Zorin 9 Lite first and go from there:

That's odd. :D Brilliant minds think alike.
I haven't checked in for a couple hours because I was dumping Solydx for Zorin.

It's was on a ssd and wouldn't play with trim.

CF-29 MK5
