Trying to install Fedora 8 on a 320GB hard Maxtor ATA hard drive. There is 65GB of free unpartitioned space available, the rest is already used by WinXP.
When I select the option "Use free space on selected drives and create default layout", the get the following 2 messages:
1) Error Partitioning
Could not allocate requested partitions: Partitioning failed: Unsatisfied partition request ...
2) Automatic Partitioning Errors: The following errors occured with your partitioning: You have not defined a root partition (/), which is required for installation of Fedora to continue
This can happen if there is not enough free space on your hard drive(s) for installation.
So then I tried the option "Create Custom Layout". It shows free space of 65248MB. I was able to create a "/" partition of 10GB. Then I tried to create a 1GB swap partition, but get the an error message- Could not allocate requested partitions: Partitioning failed: Not enough space left to create partition for None. But it shows that there is still 55246MB of free space.
Anyone have any ideas?
