Fedora Installation :: Error: Could Not Allocate Requested Partitions - Not Enough Free Space On Disks

Jul 11, 2010

I'm trying to install Fedora 13 on my HP dv6 laptop and when I try to use the Use Free Space installation type, I receive a Partitioning Error: Could not allocate requested partitions - not enough free space on disks. Before I started the install, I used the Disk Management utility in Windows 7 to shrink the volume of the C: drive down to 242 GB and leaving 210 GB Unallocated. Here is what the screen looks like when I select Create Custom Layout (also receive the not enough free space error):

Device (sda) Size Type
sda1 199 ntfs
sda2 248,018 ntfs
Free 215,175
sda3 13,443 ntfs
sda4 103 vfat

Fedora Installation :: 16 Gb Enough For F11 - Error "Couldn't Allocate Requested Partitions: Not Enough Free Space On Disks"

However, when tryin to create the 2nd partition, i get "Could not allocate requested partitions:Not enough free space on disks." Cant proceed any further.

Fedora Installation :: Could Not Allocate Requested Partitions

Jun 10, 2009

I'm trying to install 11 on my desktop from the live CD. I already have XP and Ubuntu installed, and I know for certain that I have an additional 25 GB left with my documents partition included. I am using a ~= 1 week old hard drive, so that last 25 GB is raw and unformatted.Anyway, here's what's going on: When I attempt to create a new partition in the "free space," I get an error dialog saying "Could not allocate requested partitions: not enough free space on disks."I thought maybe it was a quirk with the ext3/ext4 dilemma, maybe I had to create /boot prior to /, but I tried it both ways.

Fedora Installation :: 3 Core On Old Hard Drive - Error: Couldn't Allocate Requested Partitions

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Allocate Free Space To 10.10 Partition On HD

Jan 24, 2011

I have a notebook with dual boot windows and Ubuntu 10.10 on a 80 Gig hard drive. The windows XP partition was initially installed and took up the whole drive (dev/sda1). I then freed up some space and created and installed Ubuntu (/dev/sda6) and swap (/dev/sda5) on an extended partition (/dev/sda2). Initially I only freed up 3.6 Gig which I thought would be more than enough but not any more. I cannot even install the updates as there is only 100 Meg left which is not enough. I then freed up more space (8 gig) from the windows partition to allocate to Ubuntu.

My problem is that I can't seem to find to now allocate this "freed-up" space to Ubuntu? I realise that I have to boot-up from a the Ubuntu live disk so that the hard drive is not mounted to allow changes but I'm still unable to change the partitions. I'm using GParted.
The drive looks like this currently:
[...NTFS] [...Unallocated] [...Extended{(ext4),(linux-swap)}]

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To See Or Allocate Drive Space On Install

Jun 21, 2011

I have an Acer Aspire One that came with Windows 7 starter and 1GB of ram. I am currently trying to install Ubuntu 11.04 via USB drive. The problem that I am having is, whenever I get to the Allocate drive space screen it shows nothing. The box is pink with not text. If I click on Install now anyway I receive a No Root File System error. Currently the hard drive has NO partitions on it, including no file systems. It's completely blank and it is also showing up in my BIOS.

Fedora Installation :: Unable To Create Partitions - No Free Space

Aug 7, 2011

Two nights ago I installed the KDE Spin of F15 and it all went smoothly. Then, I decided to try and use Windows' bootloader (it was a dual-boot) instead of GRUB. So I booted into Windows, spun up EasyBCD, added the correct entry for Fedora, and overwrote the MBR. I rebooted and tried to boot into Fedora, only to realize that the Windows Boot Manager had a failsafe that sensed when it didn't boot into Windows, and it stopped me from booting into Fedora.

At first, I booted into my live USB and tried to get GRUB back. After a couple Konsoles full of GRUB telling me that it couldn't mount the drive and install itself, I decided I was probably doing something wrong and it would be much easier to just reinstall Fedora.

I deleted the Fedora partitions I had made earlier from Windows (because it was already running). Then I booted into my live USB and tried to install Fedora. I clicked "OK" to make a partition (that would mount at /boot) that was 500 mb. It told me there wasn't enough space, but sitting right next to one of the already installed partitions was more than 190000 mb of space. So I tried to redo the partition with 250 mb, then I tried to make the swap partition and the main one (that would mount at /). I kept getting the error. I decided maybe it was a problem with the USB, so I rebooted into Windows and reinstalled the ISO onto the USB (with unetbootin) and repeated the process, only to get the same error.

P.S- I tried to use the option to "Use Free Space" as well as doing it manually and got the same error. Also, I saw another thread where a person with my same type of compute (a Lenovo Y560) had a similar problem. It might be possible there's a hidden partition for Lenovo's purposes? Anyways, the other user's solution was to move the an extended partition somewhere. I'll be posting an fdisk soon, in case I have the same problem as the other user. The other user used GParted, but it looks like I can use Easeus too, which I already have installed.

P.P.S- Here's the fdisk in case it will help:

Disk /dev/sda: 640.1 GB, 640135028736 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 77825 cylinders, total 1250263728 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes

Red Hat / Fedora :: F11 Install Created 2 Primary Partitions

Jan 17, 2010

I used Acronis' Disk Director Suite 10.0 ["DDS"] to create 7 logical partitions of 23GB each, into one of which I asked Fedora 11 to install. Fedora 11 completely ignored me and created 2 primary partitions of its own: a 217.4GB, a 2GB and a 2GB "unallocated." I will likely delete this installation for a number of reasons. How can I force fedora to install into a 23GB logical partition that I created for just that purpose? If I can't use DDS-created partitions then why do I need DDS-created partitions?

Ubuntu Installation :: Installation Hanging At "Allocate Drive Space"?

Apr 25, 2011

I am borrowing a friend's Eee PC 4G. Ubuntu eventually crashed because the hard drive filled up (even after all personal files had been removed). So now I'm trying to reinstall Ubuntu Netbook 10.10 from a bootable USB. Creating the USB worked fine and I managed to get all the way to the "Allocate drive space" screen. I opted to make no partitions and just use the entire disk space for the install. It tells me that 2 partitions will be deleted, which is fine. I then click Forward and it just hangs there endlessly, spinning its wheel. I suspect that the already-full hard drive may be causing problems. Is there any way around this so I can get the computer running again?

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade 10.04 To 11.04 - "Allocate Drive Space" Screen

Apr 30, 2011

On the Ubuntu website, they have a screenshot of installing 11.04 from 10.04. The options are: Install 11.04 alongside 10.04, Upgrade 10.04 to 11.04, Erase 10.04 and reinstall, Something else. Erase 10.04 and reinstall is the option I want, but that is not an option when I actually try to install it. The installer detected that I have Ubuntu 10.04 and Windows XP, and gave me the following options: Install 11.04 alongside both, Erase both OSes and install 11.04, Something else. I want to install 11.04 over 10.04 and leave Windows alone. I guess I have to do the partition stuff, but I don't want to screw anything up. Here's how my partitions are currently set up.

/dev/sda1 ntfs 54303MB
/dev/sda3 ext3 19567MB
/dev/sda5 swap 896MB
/dev/sda2 fat32 5248MB

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 - No Disks At "Allocate Drive Space"

Jan 29, 2011

I'm a Linux newbie but familiar with computers in general. I can install 9.4 64 bit (but no network to update from), but 10.4 and 10.10 both fail -- I cannot get the Allocate drive space screen to list the available drives. Just a blank panel. The drive is listed in the Boot loader panel. The LiveCD works. Disk utility and Gparted are both available. At one point I even managed to mount the 9.4 file system on the LiveCD, I think using "sudo mount"

Ubuntu :: GParted - Allocate All Of Space Only To W7 And One OS?

Mar 16, 2010

I have a messed up system, or so I think. I have all sorts of partition issues that I just don't understand. I may have installed Ubuntu multipe times (GRUB show 5+ copys) along side my copy of W7. GParted show two Unused partition spaces, one massive on that it cant read completely (ntfs), a LinuxSwap, something called (ext4) and something called (extended).

What is going on? I recently deleted a virtual machine, but it looked like this even before this. How can I allocate all of my space only to W7 and one Ubuntu OS? Pic of GParted is attached.

General :: Allocate Limited SSD Space In LVM For Optimal Performance?

Jan 20, 2011

I just got a new SSD, and I'm looking for advice on how best to incorporate it into my existing LVM setup. I have the following logical volumes (mounted at the obvious places):


I've got 108.26g in the physical volumes associated with the new SSD. I'm going to use pvmove to migrate some of these LVs to the SSD. The question is, which LVs to move?

The machine in question is basically a home workstation. I do some light development (source code lives in home), run some very low-load server processes (apache, etc.), and do a bit of image and video editing from time to time. I run Gentoo on x86 if that makes a difference.

Ubuntu Installation :: Partitions For A New Windows Space

Oct 19, 2010

I have been trying to put windows onto my system as I made the switch to full linux awhile ago, but the need for certain windows programs is obviously tough to break.

df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 144G 59G 79G 43% /
udev 498M 260K 497M 1% /dev
none 498M 76K 498M 1% /dev/shm
none 498M 200K 497M 1% /var/run
none 498M 0 498M 0% /var/lock
none 498M 0 498M 0% /lib/init/rw

I am posting this information because in the other topics I have seen they always asked for them. Whenever I use Gparted though there are no options for me to make a new partition all the options are basically greyed out and I have even tried using it from gksudo. I am on an EEEpc and cant really do much from the way of live cd's as I have seen in other topics as well.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Add Any More Disk Space To Latter Partitions

Mar 4, 2011

I am installing 10.10 on my PC. I have changed the hardware and the previous install was for a x64 I now have x32. I ran the live disk and have selected install. I am now on the partition page, (manual). I am happy with the concept of partitioning and which partition is which, but I can only change the linux partition. At the moment I have @60G NTFS, 1G swap and @18G Linux. I want to reduce linux partition to about 12G (which is fine I've done that) I now have free space. I want to increase the swap partition to 2G and the remainder to be added to the NTFS partition. However, I can't add any more disk space to the latter partitions. The Swap partition has the space bar available, but the increase is greyed out and on the NTFS partition, there is no option at all.

Ubuntu Installation :: Error Message Concerning Swap Space - Partitions Missing

Jan 3, 2010

I was trying to install Ubuntu as a dual-boot on my Windows Vista laptop. The hard drive is 250 gb: Vista boot 157 gb partition; a partially-occupied 33 gb partition which was designated as swap-space; a newly partitioned and ext3 formatted 30gb for the Ubuntu installation. I believe there is also a hidden partition ~20 gb with "hidden" system info. During installation I received an error message concerning the swap space partition, which forced me out of the installation and back to the ubuntu partition manager screen. Now in Vista my 33 and 30 gb partitions are missing. Is there anyway I can get back to pre-Ubuntu state?

Installation :: Changing The Hard Drive Space On Windows XP And Ubuntu 9.04 Partitions?

Sep 14, 2009

I installed Ubuntu 9.04 on my latop. I have an older 80 gig HP laptop with Windows XP. Currently, i have XP as the NTFS drive and it takes up about 72 gigs of space, the swap drive for ubuntu is about 256 MB and the ext-3 drive is 2.5 gigs. However, i have no more hard drive space to run or instal any programs on Ubuntu. So what i need to do is decrease the NTFS drive as i still have over 30 gigs of free space on my laptop and increase the ext3 drive to about 10 or 15 gigs and increase the swap drive?

Ubuntu Installation :: New Machine Has 4 Primary Partitions; Unallocated Space "unusable"?

My motherboard on my old HP laptop died, so I bought a new machine that's running Windows 7.The machine is a Compaq (HP) and has a 250 Gig hard disk. I used Windows Disk Manager to shrink the space Windows is in so I can install Ubuntu in that space.When I start the partitioner it says the free space is unusable. I ran Gparted and sure enough, there are already 4 primary partitions on my drive:

/dev/sda1 = ntfs - SYSTEM
/dev/sda2 = ntfs
