Could not alllocate partitions installing F14 with Win7
Hello All -
I'm trying to dual boot F14 along side of Win7 and I'm running into partitioning errors -
"Could not allocate requested partitions: not enough free space on disks"
I used the Win7 Disk Management to shrink the C:\ drive by 100G, and the Disk Utility in F14 shows the unallocated space.
Here is what the current layout looks like:
--210Mb bootable (sda1)
--168Gb (sda2) --Win7
--105Gb unallocated -- Future home to F14
--31Gb extended (sda 3) -- not sure what this is used for
--31Gb (sda 5) -- Lenovo drivers
--16Gb (sda 4) -- Lenovo restore
Am I running into the partition limit I have been reading about?
If so, is there a way to get around this? I really don't want to delete the partitions yet.
If it's not the partition limit, what else could it be?
Re: Could not alllocate partitions installing F14 with Win7
Yes, you have already used the four possible primary partitions (sda1-sda4). The only way to create additional partitions is to move the unallocated space inside the extended partition (sda3). Then you can create logical partitions (sda6-...)
