    Installation issues

    I am trying to install Vista RC1 on a systeem to dual boot Fedora Core 5.
    During the installation step 2 says select destination. I had a gB FAT32
    Partition set up, and it said it needs to be NTFS. I formatted the drive to
    such, and now it keeps telling me that windows did not detect any volume that
    match the criteria. Now I have removed the FC5 drive entirely, and it still
    gives me the error no matter how large a partition I make.

    I am running a Dell Dimension 2400
    Using an SIL680 RAID card with driver floppy
    and a maxtor 300gB HDD

    Hi,

    What format is the active partition? Not the installation target, but the
    partition or volume that is designated as active. It has to be NTFS for
    Vista to install its bootloader.

    well it wasn't listing any from yhe primary drive, however in this system's
    BIOS I found there is a Hard disk sequence option separate from the boot
    sequence, all I had to do was List this drive as primary, and it installed.
