Hello, i'am trying to load slackware 8.1 onto a seagate hard drive i just got and for some reason when i install it and restart and doesn't show up. Either my computer doesn't detect it or it didn't install correctly. I have installed it before with no problem but this time it just seems to have problems. First I made a linux and a linux swap partition (linux - 4gb swap - 300mb). I wrote those partitions with no problem. Then after that I did a full install, I did decide not to load lilo boot tho. Slackware found all of my hardware and I selected KDE as my graphic interface. After all of that i restarted my computer like it said and after that it checks the cd rom, checks the floppy, and then it checks the hard drive and doesn't seem to find linux. Does anyone know why it's not working? Would using partition magic 8 to do my partition make any difference from using slackware?
