View Full Version : [ubuntu] Resize operation failure

October 22nd, 2008, 08:01 AM
The second attempt has been successful.
Sorry for the trouble. :)

I was installing Ubuntu 8.04 Desktop 64bit on a new Dell Inspiron laptop.
It had Vista installed so I wanted to make a double boot computer.

At the step 4, I chose the size of the partition using the slider and pressed "Forward". Then in a second o so I got a message
"Resize operation failure"
"An error occurred while writing the changes to the storage device.
The resize operation has been aborted."

What is the reason for this message?
What should I do to install Ubuntu?
