Hi, during installing Fedora from USB I got only this ERROR. However, it seems that this error prevents me from installing Fedora. It boots, loads and when I click on "Install to harddrive" nothing happens.

Thank you for any response what this error might mean and possible solution.

Error

ldm_parse_tockblock(): Cannot find TOCKBLOCK, database may be corrupt.

TOCBLOCK is the Table of Contents for Windows logical disks. What is your plan with respect to the current windows system?

Install Fedora over Windows. Meaning deleting whole Windows from disk completeletely. Do you think that for example formatting whole disc with windows would help ?

I have found out that this problem was most likely caused by multiple HDD I used in my system (mostly fore storage). After unplugging all of them except disk I wanted to install Fedora on, erros disappeared and I was able to install Fedora.

"TOCBLOCK" is the Table of Contents for Windows logical disks (ldm).

What you can try to do is running gparted /dev/sdX on your disk and remove the offending partitions. This can also be done using fdisk or gdisk. If all this fail, you can wipe everything:

dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdX bs=64K count=100

Replace sdX by the name for the disk where you would install the system. Thus don't specify the name of your usb boot device.

It might be interesting to know what caused the Windows ldm to be corrupted, or if the ldm is no longer compatible with linux.
