Re: 64Bit installation on a 500 GB Sata DRIVE

Its a Seagate HD. I dont have the exact model number. Now I am checking if this is a hardware problem. One thing that bothers me is why does 32bit works?

We've been doing an installation on this LTSP Server we are trying to

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.

Who is the manufacturer of your HD? What is the type?
I installed Debian Lenny 5.0 amd64 on two 500 GB HDs with no problem.
