View Full Version : [ubuntu] Not enough disk space?

March 9th, 2011, 05:40 PM
Hi, on the weekend I tried to install Ubuntu on my home pc. My wife currently uses Ubuntu on her laptop so I'm happy to go for a complete wipe + installation and get rid of Windows once and for all.
I used the same install cd I used on wife's laptop to install Ubuntu, which is the desktop download from the web-site (followed instructions fine). However with this installation, I get to the part where it checks I have an internet connection and enough disk space and it warns me I do not have enough disk space?
The hard drive is 100Gb, and it's mostly free already with Windows on it. How come it is telling me I don't have enough space? Is there something I can do to make sure it's looking in the right place for the space?
I'm an absolute beginner so sorry if it's obvious, I have tried also to search for an existing thread. Hope you can help, as I really want to use Ubuntu at home!
Best regards

Hi, welcome to the fora.

If you want to get rid of Windows completely, just select 'use entire drive for Ubuntu' (or something similar) during installation, then everything should go smoothly.
