Hi

I have tried to install the latest version of Ubuntu onto my PC, which I would like to run in tandem with XP. I am using the live CD to do this.

Unfortunately I get the following error whenever I try the 'install alongside current operating system' choice: -

"An error occurred while writing the changes to the storage devices. The resize operation has been aborted"

Can anyone offer me any help?

Thank you

Boot into Windows, run chkdsk /y twice, then defragment your hard drive at least twice, you should then be able to resize your Windows partition.
