Hoping someone can help me with this.I have Window 8 (upgraded Windows 7) and am struggling to free up space to install Ubuntu as a dual boot. What I have tried so far:
Used Windows Partition Manager to free up 20GB then used the Simple Volume Wizard to set this as a FAT32 volume. When I fired up UBUNTU it picked up this space but it was flagged as unuseable.
I then went back into the Partition Manager and deleted the volume so I just had unallocated space. Fired up Ubuntu and launched GParted. This didn't pick up the free space. I tried shrinking my main volume to free up space by GParted threw up and error and wouldn't do it.
Not quite sure what yo try now. Any ideas?
