Re: debian 6.0.4 grub installation failed.
by the way when i am creating partition via fdisk on 2TB HD . it
showed that my starting block is 2048. instead of 1. i dont know why.
however when i create the partition. via FDISK it gives me an error
when i fdisk -l /dev/sda. like "Partition does not start on physical
sector boundary" it happens when i create partition via installation
CD. however when i create via fdisk via clonezilla CD and try to
installed debian on these partition. installation doest recognize the
partition. it shows drive is empty.
