View Full Version : [ubuntu] Error with partitions, Windows XP and 9.10

September 8th, 2010, 06:23 PM
Hi. I'm trying to install Ubuntu 9.10. When it got to the "partition manager" stage of the installation, not only was I not able to decrease the Windows partition's size, I was also told that there was an error when partitioning and that the process has been aborted, I'm now just using the Ubuntu Live CD. Any idea if I'm doing something wrong/how to fix it please? Regards.

Hey Helenarth,

Try shrinking the windows partition using windows or use Gparted. I think this link (http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/working-around-windows-vistas-shrink-volume-inadequacy-problems/) will help you.

Good Luck :)
