I've stuck a Intel SSD into a (brand new) Lenovo X120e; the SSD
identifies as "ATA INTEL SSD SA2CW12"; it's one of the new 120 GB/25 nm
process drives.

The Fedora linux installer keeps dying on "you may need to initialize
this drive"; best indication I've got is that this is because parted is

address@hidden ~]# partprobe -s
/dev/sda: msdos partitions

A bug has been detected in GNU Parted.  Refer to the web site of parted 
http://www.gnu.org/software/parted/parted.html for more information of what 
could be useful for bug submitting!  Please email a bug report to 
address@hidden containing at least the version (2.3) and the following message: 
 Assertion (head_size <= 63) at dos.c:661 in function 
probe_partition_for_geom() failed.
Aborted (core dumped)

I can manually partition the drive with fdisk (and then stick an ext2
file system on it and mount it, do the usual tests with touch and copying
of files back and forth); I can't do so with parted.

Let me know if there's more information I can send you!
