Can't install on my SSD

Hey everyone,

I've installed Arch Linux with no problems in the past on regular HDDs. Now that I'm trying to install it on an OCZ Vertex 60 GB SSD, it says the following:

FATAL ERROR: Bad primary partition 0: Partition ends in the final partial cylinder"

The SSD currently has my Windows 7 installation and it has been formatted with the default Windows 7 formal tool (that's recommended and comes in the default installer).

Re: Can't install on my SSD

Sorry should have said, use fdisk from the arch install cd.  Setup partitions.  Then skip the partition section of the installer.
