      I’ve found that almost always, I have to delete all partitions to get Antix to install.
      Has anyone else encountered this problem?
      Regards

        No. Are you formatting MBR or GPT. I set my bios to legacy and format partitions as MBR. If I need more than 4 primary partitions while using a drive as a MBR drive. I make a Extended partition and start adding.

          Hi
          Thanks for your prompt reply.
          Normally, when I install a distro, there is an option to erase the disk and install, which the distro does for me automatically.
          I’ve usually just let the installation work and it usually does.
          Regards
          D
