I was given an old server from work that I wanted to convert to a home file server. So I wanted to just do a clean install of Ubuntu server. Problem is, when I get to the partition screen I don't get the normal options. Instead of getting the normal options, its skips straight to the confirmation screen and I have 3 options:
- Help on partitioning
- Undo changes to partitions
- Finish partitioning and write changes to disk.
1 is obviously not helpful here, 2 just gives me a blank screen, and 3 tells me that "No root file system is defined." If I were to make a guess I would say that the hard drive is most likely encrypting and perhaps that is causing the problem?
I have no interest in the data that's already there. I just want a fresh install. I can probably get the root password to the machine if I have to. Any ideas?
