Can't install ubuntu, won't recognize partition & auto option too small.
I've tried (too) many ways to do this and would really appreciate guidance thru the best route.
Installing ubuntu the 'auto' way, it used only 2.5 gigs and then couldn't do anything - update, install eclipse.
Using gparted to partition didn't work (can't remember what happened) and read to use windoze partitioning for dual boot. Also read it doesn't work - the right-click options are available somewhat randomly. Tried paragon (tool) to make a 20G partition but ubuntu says 'no root system defined' and won't install.
I currently have a partition and can't figure out how to undo it, so the best path would be to get ubuntu to install here.
any help GREATLY appreciated, this is day 3 & reformat windoze 2 so pretty frustrating.
