    Re: Ubuntu 10.04 installations problems (partitions)

    I deleted the HP TOOLS partition, and then I shrunk my C drive, to about 50 Gigs. Now there are 2 unallocated partitions, and they dont combine to form a larger partition.

    Once i boot into Ubuntu, i cannot install side by side or even use the largest continuous free space. Am I doing something wrong?

    Boot windows and in command prompt run:

    chkdsk /r /f
    Darko.

    Are you reading what we say here? I said no partition should be created into the unallocated space, leave it as unallocated, not belonging to any partition.
    What is sda4, with size of 50GB? Again you have 4 partitions, and that's the limit. You have created another partition after deleting HP Tools which beats the point.

    Delete that partition (if it's newly created and empty) and the installer will show you other options too.
    Darko.

    When i deleted the HP Tools Partition, it became unallocated. The size of it was about 100 mb. I wanted to increase it so i shrunk my C drive 50 gigs or so. I ran the command you gave me, but nothing seems to happened.

    That command was only to check the C: for errors. I wrote it before you attached the screenshot.

    Only shrinking sda3 would not have created sda4. Anyway, just open Gparted (System-Administration) in live mode and delete sda4. After that start the installer and use Use Largest Available Free space option.
    Darko.
