After the basic info (username, password) I had this error and the installer exited.
Any ideas?

Traceback (most recent call last):

  File "/usr/lib/live-installer/frontend/", line 828, in wizard_cb

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

    self.disks = _get_attached_disks()

    size = str(int(float(size[:-1]) * (1024/1000)**'BkMGTPEZY'.index(size[-1]))) + size[-1]

Run the live iso.
You have two choices then.
1. If your machine has BIOS, run the old installer:
sudo sparkylinux-installer gui
2. If your machine has UEFI:
Remove the present live-installer:
sudo apt-get purge live-installer
Just in case to make sure its clear:
sudo rm -rf /usr/lib/live-installer
Install the latest version of the live installer:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install live-installer

Thanks. I did the noEFI install. It' s UP and running.
After some days using it I  'll be back, I hope not for problems solving.
