I am currently setting dual boot on a laptop (Thinkpad T60p if it matters - will be buying a T520 soon though
). I installed Win7 without a hitch and then I started to install CentOS 5.5 (32-bit).
On systems that I only install CentOS, I am able to create an LVM that takes the majority of the hard disk without a problem. However, when I try to do that in a system with dual boot, I can't maximize the size of the LVM, or at least it doesn't seem like I can do that without creating additional logical volumes which doesn't seem to make sense.
I have a 500GB disk - I partitioned it so that I have about 260GB for Windows and the rest for CentOS. I go through the CentOS installer and create the LVM.
Even though the partition manager knows I have enough space to do this, it seems like I can only create one that's a small fraction of the remaining free space.
Anyone have any ideas on how I can solve this?
Please note: I know that I can buy a hard disk and avoid this problem, but I am sure there has to be a solution somewhere.
