Xubuntu Alternate Partitioning wrong table
Xubuntu Feisty Fawn Iso Testing - Manual Partitioning Fail
Objective: Manual partition delete, new, format on 1st (of 3) partitions on 2nd hard drive HDB. Subsequently found that worked.
But then as Partitioning continued it insisted on wanting to rewrite partition table on HDA. Not acceptable. That's existing Windows 98 and Dapper. Aborted Manual partition & Install at that point. Whew, HDA wasn't harmed.
Bug is, Manual Partition should re-write the partition(s) selected, not any partitions not selected and certainly not any partition tables on another hard drive.
