I originally removed Vista from my XPS M1330 and installed Ubuntu. Now, I would like to be able to dual boot both OSs. Everything seemed to go fine as a reinstalled Vista, but as I was downloading updates, I started to receive messages that there is no more memory left on my c: drive. Was there some way I could have gone wrong when creating the partitions? Is there a way that ubuntu and Vista could share the same memory

thanks

hi,

we need more information.

can you show us your current partitions, what is on each, and how much space is avilable on each?


also, when people say 'memory' they are talking about RAM not hard drive space. :D

Open Disk Manager and resize C Drive according to your needs:
