Unfortunately, the SL 6 LXDE LiveCD does not contain the GNOME or KDE GUI partition managers. Therefore I suggest you create a bootable SL 6 GNOME 'LiveDVD' on you 8 GB SD card using UNetbootin or whatever, boot it, launch the partition manager GParted and format the HDD to have the partitions you want but using ext4, not NTFS.
You are correct in the first part. But your suggestions are useful still because I would like to try a few things based off of this (trying the larger LiveDVD GNOME version, possibly loading up a bootable gparted from LiLi to format the hdd, etc).

I have had these errors a lot on Sabayon live usb and it's either when you have to push alt+f1 for verbose or push f2 for verbose during the boot up, but I am willing to bet he is unable to even get to the splash screen with the sound of this error.
If this is the same error I used to have, I always tried a different USB port or even a different flash/thumb drive.
Also correct, I get to the LiveCD boot screen with options for installation or starting Sabayon. As it begins to load, I press Alt+F1 for the information I posted above.

Helps installing XFCE Sabayon 6.0 Edition. I tried to install daily to have much less upgrades to do.
I was using unetbootin and the same pendrive on both cases. I'm using FAT formated pen and have no problem if I use the same .ISO repeatedly.
Earlier I had similar problem sometimes, so for my opinion this is Sabayon problem with creating anaconda entries. Sometimes anaconda can't find root path, dunno why.
So would you suggest using an older or different build and upgrading? My internet connection bandwidth is approximately 120 kbps, but I suppose I can download more ISOs given enough time.
Oh, my misunderstanding. I'll have to try and stop speed-scanning posts. I saw the "/dev/sda1" and assumed the OP was getting the problem after running the Installer following a success boot into the DE of the LiveCD/SD.
In any case, the error message he is getting is interesting:
- Code: Select all
>> Attempting to mount media:- /dev/sda1
!! Media not found
I wonder if that is actually a bug in the LiveCD boot software. I'd be inclined to try a different spin, to see if that works. And, I wonder what "/dev/sda1" is really
referring to. The LiveCD or the HDD? It would still be interesting to try booting a SL 6 GNOME LiveCD/SD and reformatting the HDD as ext4 rather than NTFS to see if that has an effect.
I will try the GNOME suggestion as quickly as I can download that version (read: tomorrow morning), but first I'll try bootable gparted.
If I go to the shell and use "cat /proc/partitions" I get two results (which are from recollection right now), a partition "sda" with 312 billion bytes ("320" GB HDD) and "sda1" with slightly fewer bytes than sda. I did not know what to make of this last night, but I hope it's relevant.
