    Unhappy error: out of space

    Hi all
    I just reinstalled Ubunto 12.04 on my dell inspiron 6000 laptop, on top of Windows7
    My hard disk is an older IDE drive of 320 Gb which, as I learned on a previous installation, has problems seeing disk spaces bigger than 137 Gb (my old laptop doesn't support newer SATA drives which I think do not present this kind of problems).
    Nevertheless I chose to let ubuntu installer decide where to install ubuntu. The installation went apparently well but...when I rebooted
    ZAP! I get an "error: out of disk" message and after that the grub2 prompt emerges.

    I used boot-repair to see if the problem could be fixed. I had to run it twice.
    The first time run it with the general process, and it apparently solved the problem or so it said: (here is the result: (http://paste.ubuntu.com/6723853) but upon rebooting...ZAP again! same error message.

    I rerun boot-repair, going into the advanced options and marked the ATA disk check box, and this time too it said that the problem was solved
    (with the following check list: http://paste.ubuntu.com/6723859).
    Indeed when I first rebooted it was all right, well almost, I first got an "error: can't find device" (or something similar), but after a few seconds the dual-loader boot menu appeared and could normally login into ubuntu.

    After that, I downloaded lots of updates and finally shut the system down..and went to bed
    This morning I got again the same initial problem: error: our of disk, and I wonder why.
    Could it have been caused by the fact that I downloaded so much system SW upgrades, so that what had been fixed has been manipulated again?

    On the other hand my HD, as per when it was firstly installed Win7, had only one C: drive with some 98Gb of space, where Win7 was installed. Being aware that this problem could arise with my machine I hoped that the installer would install ubuntu in the same partition as where Win7 was installed so that the boot sector for ubuntu would be closer to the area that the BIOS can recognize (not sure if I am using the right terminology here), but I problably misread the instructions I had found in the ubuntu installation page
    If we take a look at the image attached given by GParted and the pastebin from boot-repair, Ubuntu seems to have been installed on sda5 which is out of reach of the bios.
    So....what can I do at this point to fix this?
    Do I need to reinstall Ubuntu and specifiy to create a boot partition whitin sda2, and how? or what else?
    Any help appreciated
    All the best

    I hoped that the installer would install ubuntu in the same partition as where Win7 was installed
    The only way the Ubuntu installer can install INSIDE a Windows NTFS partition is if you use Wubi -- and support for that has been discontinued.

    It looks like you installed Ubuntu to its own partition, anyway.

    To confirm that, please open a terminal, enter "sudo fdisk -lu" (that's a lowercase L, not a one) -- and post the results back here.
    Ubuntu 14.04, Mint 17; MS Win 8.1.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.

    Please post the output of
    Code:
    df -h
    df -i
    Use the adv reply to wrap the output in "code" tags. Thanks. This previously had the incorrect command, du. Sorry for the mistake.

    Is this a WUBI install? If so, boot-repair won't help. It may damage things. WUBI has many caveats to use.
    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WubiGuide#Warning
    I have **never** used WUBI myself. UEFI breaks it, so it will be unavailable going forward.

    Without more detailed information, can't guess about this issue. Sorry. What do the log file show? That is the 1st place to look for system errors. /var/log/*

    I doubt the system is limited to 137G. Linux has worked around that for ... many, many years. OTOH, if there is only 1 partition on the HDD and Linux was forced to share it with another OS, then that other OS has control over the partition space issues, NOT Linux. Any limitations of the other OS would still be there.

    Ubuntu will not specify sizes or locations on drive if you have specific needs. Better to use Something Else or manual install and specify your own partitions.

    Better to shrink Windows with Windows disk tools and reboot so it can run chkdsk.
    Then either create a separate /boot partition 300 to 500MB fully within the first 100GB or create a smaller / (root) of 15 or 20GB and have separate /home and/or shared NTFS data partition.
    Do not shrink Windows NTFS partition too much as it needs 30% free space to work well, but it look like you have lots of unused space.

    Hi TheFu
    here is the result of du -h (du -i doesn't seem to work/exist on this version of ubuntu (12.04))
    Although I reckon that this is only showing the file system under the live demo installation which I am running, and not the file system which was installed on sda5
    so probably not very significant. If you know how to get the du -h of the partition where ububtu was installed please let me know

    Re: error: out of space.....please HELP!!!

    Hi Oldfred
    thx for your reply
    Actually my initial idea was to install ubunto within those 98Gb where Windows is installed by shrinking it somehow, and I thougth that this would happen through the installer (need to reed more carefully next time) but, how can I implement what you write? I guess this would mean to unistall the ububtu installation and start again, right? Right now I cannot access windows.
    Any suggested steps of action?
    All the best
    Antonio

    You can install a Windows boot loader. Use your Windows repairCD or flash drive or Boot-Repair can install a Windows like boot loader, but not do other Windows repairs.
    With boot repair it will just auto fix grub, which still will not work, but you manually can choose in Advanced tab Windows and sda and it will put a Windows type boot loader in.

    Boot Repair -Also handles LVM, GPT, separate /boot and UEFI dual boot.:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair
    You can repair many boot issues with this or 'Create BootInfo' report (Other Options) & post the link it creates, so we can see your exact configuration and diagnose advanced problems.
    For info on UEFI boot install & repair:

    My mistake - should have been
    Code:
    df -h 
    df -i
    I'm very sorry. Will change the post above accordingly.

    Hi Oldfred
    I run the boot-repair utility by using the advanced options as you explain, and this is the generated report http://paste.ubuntu.com/6728036/

    After rebooting, things haven't changed though and can't still access windows either.
    Best regards
    Antonio
