During the weekend I downloaded usb installation image and tried to
install on 3rd partition (primary), but the installer showed only the
usb drive itself as available storage. I tried more times to be sure.
I assumed the usb installer is not good, so I grabbed the dvd ISO (again
x64) and this time the installer did not show any available storage (no
hdd was detected probably).
I will try 32bit images in upcoming days, but I'd be happy for a advice.
I have lenovo thinkpad r61 laptop with sata 250GB HDD. and I previously
used windows xp (using at the moment), ubuntu, pcbsd, desktopbsd on my
laptop and never had issues with my hard drive.
I will add that I installed AiR-boot bootmanager (I had no success with
GAG and I dont like its graphical interface), but in ideal case the boot
manager should not interfere with hdd detection, right?
Thx for any advice in advance.
