I've spent the last frustrating week trying to install Easy Peasy to the hard drive of my HP MINI 5102 (1.66Ghz Intel Atom N450) with no luck and am really desperate for some advice. All I want to do is have the netbook boot Easy Peasy locally without the need to have a chunky USB stick hanging out of the side.
I've tried all sorts of methods gleaned from Google and finally got to the point where I have used GParted to completely remove all partitions from the hard drive leaving the entire 150Gb unallocated.
I downloaded the Easy Peasy ISO and installed it to a multiboot USB using Yumi (I also run GParted off it). I have previously unsuccessfully tried Unetbootin and Universal USB installer (both of these resulted in the OS installing over the top of the USB not to the hard drive)
I have no trouble booting from the USB from BIOS on start up. When I run Easy Peasy from Yumi I get two options: 1 - Run from this USB; 2 - Install the Hard Disk.
Option 2, Install to Hard Disk appears to run Easy Peasy from the USB, with Gparted showing no partitions on the 150GB Hard Disk. When I reboot Yukon EXE runs and reports a Non-System disk error or disk error.
So I reboot, and this time select Option 1,Run from this USB. Easy Peasy starts and I run the Install This app which runs the installer GUI. I select Language, Time Zone. The Prepare Disk space window says "There is no operating system on it where do you want to install Ubuntu?" Option 1 - Erase and Use Entire Disk; Option 2 - Use Largest Continuous Free Space; Option 3 - Specifiy Partitions manually.
Option 1 cretes the following partitions but continues to produce the disk error options.
I also attempted to use Option 2 with the same results. I am at a loss of what to do.
