Corsair Force F60 + Ubuntu

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I have a Corsair Force F60 and I d like to install Ubuntu on it. Unfortunately there are alway errors during the installation process.

It says " Read only filesystem" during the datacopy.

 

In contrast to that I was able to install Win7 on the same drive.

 

I already updated Bios but without success at the Ubuntu installation.

 

Does anybody have an idea?

 

Regards

On older linux kernels NTFS is read-only. This is a shot in the dark but if you already installed Windows 7 and the drive is NTFS that might be why you can't install linux to it. Just format the drive completely before you install it and you should be able to install it. Try an ext or Reiser, or even FAT32 if you want Windows compatibility later if you haven't tried these already.

It sounds to me like it's more of a Ubuntu/Linux problem. I would check with Ubuntu support or their forums, or a general-purpose Linux forums if possible.

 

There is a power problem with the Force drive right now but I don't think it's related. Can you put the drive in a Windows machine and report back what firmware you have by using CrystalDisk Info?

I would try another Build of the O.S. like SUSE or Mandrake both free downloads you can use to test. But I have installed both of these on the same drive with no issues at all. I am using openSUSE-11.3-DVD-i586 to other testing now on that same drive with the same firmware. You also might try and run Parted Magic and do a secure erase on the drive.
