Bug#586738: can't install because 'write changes to disk' fails
attempting to install debian testing from weekly images (tried cd1 and
create partitions for root home and swap
when it goes to write these changes to disk i get the error:
"failed to create a file system"
this happens no matter which file system i attempt to use.
I have downloaded the most recent testing images and i am attempting
to install to a brand new Alienware MX-11 laptop.
I've never run into this error before so i'm not sure where to look.
because this laptop is pretty recent should i try and use a different
version of the installer?
are there ways to create my own squeeze image with the latest
installer for this purpose?
