problem with installation (disk space)
please excuse me for being a newbie and directly asking my question here.
i have a problem with fedora 18 installation. before the installation, i have free some space on my disk. i use the easeus partition manager software to free up to 200 GB space into unallocated space (image attached)
the pre installation process went well, but when i start to configure the installation destination, the process always end with "not enough disk space" message, while i actually have a 200GB free space. (image attached)
the automatic partitioning failed. so i tried to customize the partitioning, and manually add the mount point to each of /boot, /home, etc. and still failed with the same message (not enough disk space). (image attached)
could someone help me with this problem. thanks before.
seeing as it is almost impossible to read the "tinypic" images ( they are too tiny )
i am betting you are trying to install fedora the the MBR and not the "freed up partition
also is that "freed up" partition still formatted to MS Windows NTFS
you might want to reread the fedora install guide
fedora will default to the FIRST partition on a drive
but you have the option to override that
Thank you for your response.
The thing is, ive succeed at installing the Fedora 17 before. They have options so i can choose, between to shrink the current free space on a partition, or to install it to an unallocated space (like the option on this F18 install). I used the shrink partition option and it worked. And in this case (F18 installation), they got no such options, so i kind of unfamiliar with the environment (like mounting /boot etc.). Ive read the document you gave, but still its too general.
Thing i dont understand is, in this picture (http://i49.tinypic.com/2vht9b9.jpg), the system recognize that i actually have up to 200GB free space. So why do i still got the "no t enough disk space" message. If it's like what youve said earlier, how can i not install it on the MBR? Or how can i reformat it so it wont be a MS Windows NTFS anymore?
Fedora dose keep using new and different software
and i tend to be just stuck in my ways when it comes to partitioning disks
as such i have used "Gparted live CD" for years to pre partition disks
from the fedora 18 release notes
the fedora wiki about the new installer
