"Removing Conflicting Operating System Files" when installing to formatted partition?

Asked by Michael DePaulo on 2010-04-13

When I went to install Lucid nightly April 12th 64-bit on my system, the only changes to the existing hard disk were to format the old ext 4 partition as / , format the old swap partition, and mount the ntfs partition as /media/win7 . However, after formatting it told me it was "Removing Conflicting Operating System Files." I thought I should only see this message/status when installing to a partition without formatting it. Is this a bug?

Hi :)

It doesn't sound quite right! Did you complete the install and does Windows still boot up fine? If you didn't complete the install please could you try again but this time without mounting the ntfs partition as anything? I assume the / is a spare partition and not your main install?

Good luck and regards from
Tom :)

Can you help with this problem?
