I seem to be having this odd issue with Ubuntu that I had in a previous attempt at installing and have still not been able to successfully install Ubuntu on any of my computers. This most recent attempt at installing stops at the installation type screen where I inform it to dualboot with my Windows 7 64 bit OS. When I clicked install now, I receive an error stating:
starting sector number, 4294967296 exceeds the msdos-partition-table-imposed maximum of 4294967295
With this error I cannot click the ok button to remove the error as it stays there and it doesn't seem to be frozen as I can see the lighting on the button light up when I mouse over the selection but it will not continue.
I have heard this error occurs from 3TB hard drives (which I have) not working properly with Ubuntu. However, when I encountered this error before I somehow got around it and ended up with 2TB on my normal
C: drive and 700~GB on a new partition like drive.
I don't remember doing anything to spur this on but I only assume it was during my troubleshooting of the situation last time and it ended up causing it to split up that 700~gb to another drive.
Also a small question about that, does Ubuntu do that or do I need to do it because Ubuntu cannot handle 3TB hard drives and has to force the hard drive to turn into around 2TB where it can easily work with it? I didn't exactly know why it needed it and if it maybe caused it on it's own.
I am relatively new to the Linux scene.
