I tried to install SparkyLinux MATE 3.6 and get this error message

Traceback (most recent call last):

  File "/usr/lib/live-installer/frontend/gtk_interface.py", line 828, in wizard_cb
    partitioning.build_partitions(self)

  File "/usr/lib/live-installer/partitioning.py", line 55, in build_partitions
    partition_setup = PartitionSetup()

  File "/usr/lib/live-installer/partitioning.py", line 210, in __init__
    self.disks = _get_attached_disks()

  File "/usr/lib/live-installer/partitioning.py", line 201, in _get_attached_disks
    size = str(int(float(size[:-1]) * (1024/1000)**'BkMGTPEZY'.index(size[-1]))) + size[-1]

ValueError: substring not found

Any suggestions? Thanks!

Hi
It happens sometimes.
What machine you have - with BIOS or EFI?
If BIOS - try to install sparky using our old installer:
sudo sparkylinux-installer gui
Nothing is easy as it looks. Danielle Steel

I found where is the problem ;)
in bios I disable floppy disk and the default installer works with no errors!
