    Hi.

    I'm having a partition problem on my HP touchpad(32g).
    I've tried to install ubuntu on my touchpad, but somehow it messed up.
    I tried to use meta-doctor to revive my touchpad, it keeps stoping at 8%.
    regarding to meta-doctor trouble shoot, stopping at 8% can be something wrong with novacom driver,
    I followed the thread, but still not working.
    I kinda assuming that this is not a problem with novacom, i'm guessing entire file structure on partition is some how messed up.
    it does power up, but does not boot up to webos. and yes it is fully charged.
    below is error message what i'm having with meta-doctor

    i can go into novaterm, but all the commands i can use, (eg, lvscan, lvresize, lvcreate etc..) are not working.
    Also, fstab.txt file does not exist in /ect

    I'm still looking for a way if there is anyway I can reorganize file/folder structures in my touchpad.

    I'll be glad if there is anyone can help me with this problem.

    Thank you.

    Have you looked at the homebrew app "Tailor"? You can set, and remove partitions on the fly with that app. (I haven't used it yet, but that's what it's for).
    Due to the cancellation of the penny, I no longer give 2 about anything. I may however, give a nickel

    Thank you for the help. but i wasn't able to install anything off from webosquick install.
    also, i can not access to preware because webos does not boot up atm.
    I'm still looking for a solution though.
