    Default problem with the debian installation

    Hi,
    I'm trying to install Debian on my pc but it doesn't work.
    I choose the language and then the installation process stops.
    I look at the log file and theese is the last line:

    user.info dbootstrap[76]: mount: mounting /dev/hdd on /instmnt failed: no
    medium found

    user.debug dbootstrap[76]: /instmnt was not mounted so it was unmounted

    user.debug loading message catalog /etc/messages.en

    any idea?
    It seems that nobody can solve this problem...
    maybe I have to change distro.

    Thank You
    Bye

    The install program can't see hdd. Can you mount it from whatever other
    OS you are using?

    Could you format or partition it?

    /dev/hdd should be the slave on the second IDE Controller, might
    be a CD-ROM and the installer is looking for the install CD? Unsure,
    I don't use debian...
