    I've been testing Hardy since the initial repository was opened, but decided that in honor of alpha 4 I should wipe the partition (dev/sdb2) and do a bare metal install from the CD (/home is a separate partition).

    Bad plan. The installer got confused right after the partitioning selection screen, complaining it could not unmount /dev/sda1. Investigating.

    It works as long as the partition to which the install is going is already formatted. Installing to unpartitioned space on the drive does not work.

    Investigating
