No problem at all. From what I remember the whole system had been
locking up on each try, but I had managed to partition the drive in the

the disk has died approximately half a year later and I've not seen
anything similar with newer disks / Ubuntus, so it may have been a kind
of a hardware problem (moreover, a firmware flaw was reported in the
Barracuda 7200.11 series -- Seagate was even offering free data

GParted freezes after creating a NTFS partition
Status in “gparted” package in Ubuntu:
Binary package hint: gparted
During scanning all devices after creating a NTFS partition on a clean
SATA drive (Seagate Barracuda ST3500320AS) gparted freezes hard --
even kernel magic does nothing. After a restart rerunning GParted or
trying to access any partition on the drive also causes a freeze.
Ext3 partitions on the same drive work (also created with GParted),
removing the NTFS partition using command line parted makes them
Logs don't seem to show anything relevant.
Tried a couple of times with different BIOS settings, msdos and gpt
labels, nothing works.
