    I'm trying to install Namib on my workstation. The installation on my laptop finished without any problem...
    The workstation is triple boot (Fedora 27, Windows 10 and planned Namib)
    Lots of kernel messages in journal about the disk i want to install to;
    Code:
    kernel: ata3 : exception Emask 0x10 sAct 0x0 SErr 0x4080000 action 0xe frozen
                ata3 : irq_stat 0x00000040 , connection status changed
                ata3 : SError : { 10B8B DevExch }
                ata3 : hard resetting link
    further;
              ata3 : soft reset failed (ist FIS failed)
    then;
             system-udevd seq 2865 '/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1f.2/ata3/host2/target2:0:0/2:0:0:0/block/sda/sda1' is taking a long time
    .....and then it gets killed and dumps the core...

    On Fedora and Windows the disk is OK!
    I have tried installing in four different ways;
    1) Erasing the (gpt) volume (that had [Hackintosh]MacOS on it.) from Calamares.
    2) Erasing the volume on gparted Fedora and writing msdos partition table in case that could be the culprit.
    Installing Namib on an empty disk
    3) Creating / (root) /boot /home and swap on Fedora
    Trying to install Namib didn't work.
    4) Creating / (root) /boot /home and swap on Calamares
    Got the errors above.

    Is there a workaround ?
    What is the advised way to install Namib? Is there an alternative for Calamares?

    Hi,
    Can you provide me some screenshot if possible. These type of errors come from hard drive failure or bad sata connector. Give me more detail on your computer. Give me the result of "lspci" and "lshw"

    Thank you

    Merci for your reply Frédéric! It seems I got hit by a (Samsung/Seagate) fimware bug that produced SMART errors on the bus. Strange for a >5 yr old disk i used to run Hackintosh from...
    I updated the firmware and now the installer runs very smooth.:)

    Something else... It seems i cant close this topic. Or I missed a button?
