I'm running into quite a dilemma, where I'm unable to create a new partition table on a particular SSD (Samsung 840 EVO). Attempting to create a msdos partition table via gparted doesn't work, and I've search high and low for an answer. Even tried diskpart from a Windows disc, but it would only indicate that the partition table is good and once I run up the installer, the installation fails (failed to create a partition). Installing and running Windows on the SSD works fine, and installing 14.04.1 on one of the HDDs in the system works, but not on the SSD.
In GParted is just indicates a warning that "/dev/sda: unrecognised disk label". I've only ever installed a Fedora LVM on the SSD once but it was wiped, and have never had any success with it since.
If anyone could shed some light on this, I would greatly appreciate it.
Update 13/12/14: I've RMA'd the SSD, and will update again once I get my replacement in.
