Re: 64Bit installation on a 500 GB Sata DRIVE



What I tried was to partition my HD using other linux installation at my workplace. Then I tag the partition so it wont be formatted but the installation still fails. Anyways thanks for the info. I just wanted to know if there are limitations or problem that could arise. Thanks!

We've been doing an installation on this LTSP Server we are trying to
build. While formatting the 500 GB HD the partitioning
process is stock at 33%. Can anyone suggest if there are limitations or
problems or past experiences?

Anyway just for additional information:
I tried using lenny 64bit installer to no avail and 32bit installation is
successful but we want to use 64bit because the machine has 5GB of memory so
as to maximize the memory.
Processor is Intel QUAD Q9550.
    
I donot have experience in it, if I encountered this problem, I would
try to use the gNewSense livecd to partition the harddisk, and after
that, install the 64bit debian. here is the gNewSense livecd,
