View Full Version : [ubuntu] Trying to Install ubuntu getting partition error

May 3rd, 2008, 04:30 AM
Had Windows Home XP On the drive. Home made computer, no OEM or anything. I try to get 35 GB to Ubuntu and rest to Windows. Starts to partition, errors, and comes up with a table:

/dev/sda1 ntfs 80015 0MB
free space 8 MB

I do not know what to do

from within windows what does it say is your free space?

and all though I am sure you know this allready. It doesnot hurt to remember to...
create a restore point.
defrag your HDD in windows.

Just as a Close up, Defragmenting my Drive allowed me to install perfectly
