Installation issues / "Unknown Filesystem Type" mount error
« on: February 12, 2008, 02:07:54 am »
I am trying to install Linux MCE from the bootable DVD.  It starts, I can choose the hard drive and it starts to copy the files over.  It then says MOUNT: Unknown File Sytem Type " Silicon_medley_raid_member" and hangs about 5 minutes into the install.  I have tried a new hard drive and I receive the same error.  I have D/L KBUNTU 7.10 from their site and it installs fine with no errors to the hard drive so the drive is good, even the old one.  My guess is that it thinks my HD is part of a RAID which it is not.  My motherboard does have a SIL raid controller on it but I do not use any of my drives in a RAID. I have tried both the AMD 64 DVD and i386 version.  Currently I cannot get the cd torrents to D/L ?  It is strange that it begins to install and fails about 5 minutes later.  Any help would be great.  Here is my setup.

ASUS A8n-SLI premium
AMD athalon 64 X2
WD sata hard drive
seagate sata hard drive
2 gigs of ram.
