Installation not possible
« on: October 03, 2013, 11:11:59 am »
Hi,



during installation the installer did not recognize any partitions, what is going wrong ?



May be, because the partition table is gpt and not msdos ?

Hi

Yes, the installer does not support GPT.

We work on new installer, but it takes time.

Yes. It's a known issue. We've got a ticket for this already: https://sourceforge.net/p/sparkylinux/tickets/7/

There's a separate ticket for the new installer as well: https://sourceforge.net/p/sparkylinux/tickets/8/

There isn't a single thing that's impossible. Just the things that we don't yet know how to deal with. ;)
