I believe that it happens in any windows version. Considering that it
likes to check the CHS geometry , even when using LBA , you're doomed..
The best solution: get your geometry now and use it when booting the
core 2 cds (like "linux hda=C,H,S").
I've been biten by this bug when installing core 2 (and core 2 test 3)
on existing partitions (where core 2 test 2 was installed or where core
1 was installed). I didnt choose the "upgrade" option in anaconda , so
I'm not sure it's related , but when I last installed using the "linux
hda=geometry" above , I ended with a working system...
