Well, I think I assumed success too soon. I thought it was working, because Ubuntu and windows were co-existing happily, and then I tried to install fedora and it complained that the partition table was unreadable, and wanted to initialize it (warning: will lose all data on drive).

I went ahead and re-initialized it in fedora, but I'm still running into problems. What would be causing this?
