Ubuntu on windows capacity


Hi,

I've installed unbuntu on windows thanks to this:

http://www.ubuntu.com/download/deskt...dows-installer

But during the installation I was onlt able to allocate 30g of memory to linux, now i need more, do you have any ideas for me to do this?

Thanks and regards,

Roald Targé

Which option? The page you linked to has options of installing Ubuntu on its own partition or using the Wubi installer. The Wubi installer installs Ubuntu inside windows as a program and it does not have a separate partition. Also, it apparently only works for 12.04 as the page indicates. It is my understanding that Wubi is no longer being developed.

I would guess wubi and you can re-size virtual disks.

Be sure to backup your important data just in case.

30G of hard drive space??

Might be possible that you don't have free space on the windows file system.
Might be a drive or drive controller issue or bios issue. (doubt that)


Since your install isn't a normal install we can't be sure of anything.

If it helps I had to shrink my Windows partition before I could install Voyager (12.04) which is Ubuntu based.
