View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu installer says I don't have enough memory to install....

I downloaded the Ubuntu installer for windows and it gave me a pop-up saying:

256MB of memory are required for installation. Only 233MB are available. Installation may fail in such circumstances. Do you wish to continue anyway?

This is an odd situation because when I finished installation of Ubuntu the first time (I uninstalled it,) it wasn't responsive and said my hard drive had 0 space on it. I still have about 23GB left on my disk. How do I clear out space so the installation can work properly?

Memory and hard drive space are two completely different things. The only way to get more memory is to buy and install more.
