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.

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 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 :: 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)}]

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):

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Allocate And Lock Memory?

Jan 20, 2010

On my windows console, i have installed sun virtualbox. I only have 768MB ram and so i downloaded a trial version of eboostr. I thought it would work, but when i tried an install of 11.2, also, i tried a debian install, it did the same thing, it froze up in the middle of the install with the error Code: unable to allocate and lock memory. I guess that eboostr doesn't work, but is there a way to use a flash drive as ram in virtual box?

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.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 Lacks Install Into Largest Un-partitioned Space On Drive

Dec 11, 2010

I regret to see the lack of facility for Guided install into the 'largest unpartitioned space on the drive'. I cannot find it either in the Desktop CD, or the Alternate CD. It seemed to disappear in Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop CD but did stay in the Alternate CD. But in 10.10 it seems to have gone completely.I found it a really *very* useful facility for myself, and also when helping others - when all I had to say to them was - 'delete the existing partition/s, do nothing more expect then, install using the facility 'Install into the largest unpartitioned space on the drive'.

Debian Installation :: Resizing Drive During Install Leaves Empty Space Unusable

Sep 12, 2015

I just bought a new HP desktop, and I want to install Debian on the hard drive. I ran the Windows program on the Debian CD to start the install.

I selected Manual drive setting, and resized the large C: partition to 50 GB. I want to install Debian in some of the free space, only their isn''t any free space! The 400+ GB I took out of the C: partition is labeled "unusable" instead of "free space."

If I double click the unusable space, I am just given the cylinder/head/sector numbers. How I can make that space usable?

I would boot my Gparted CD, but I don't know how to get to the BIOS. The boot screen goes right to Windows without showing me the key to get to the BIOS. I tried hitting DEL, but to no effect. Do you know what the HP computers use to interrupt the boot?

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):

[Code]...

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.

Fedora :: Unable To Use Free Space In Hard Drive.

Jul 28, 2009

I installed Fedora 11 about a week ago. And all was going well until I woke up this morning, and started using it for a little bit. I noticed it was going painfully slow... (almost like Windows Vista >.<) and I started to look for a reason why. Turns out my free space in my filesystem is running out. I have a 500g hard drive, and for some reason my filesystem is only set to use 9gigs...

Why can I only use 9 gigs of my hard drive? And how can I increase that size to something less annoying so I don't have to delete stuff every few days? Also, I'm kinda new to Linux. So if this is a newb question, and you can link me somewhere to get the information, please do. I just spent an hour or so searching google, and using this forums search to no avail.

Installation :: Unable To Install Nvidia Driver After Using Dd To Copy Drive?

Sep 25, 2009

I was recently able to obtain a new laptop at work. Rather than reinstalling the OS, reconfiguring all of the software, and then copying over all of my data from my old laptop -- I decided to try to use dd to clone my drive. It worked pretty darn well (thanks Saikee!). However, I have two problems that I have noticed so far:

1) The system does not seem to offer me the option to install the proprietary nvidia driver. I was able to manually install the nvidia-glx-180 package and then edit xorg.conf appropriately and I'm running with the nvidia driver now. So this problem is resolved (though I still find it odd it didn't even offer my the "restricted hardware drivers" option in System -> Administration).

2) Wireless is not working. I checked dmesg and it doesn't seem to have any errors in it. Here is a list of things I have checked/found which I think might be relevant:

- Oddly enough it seems that my wired device always gets renamed from eth0 to eth1, and my wireless device gets renamed from wlan0 to wlan1. I'm not sure why (though I would prefer them to be eth0 and wlan0).

- dmesg output looks good shows some message about the wlan1 link not being ready

Code:

bmayes@bdmlin:~$ dmesg | grep wlan
[ 10.915831] udev: renamed network interface wlan0 to wlan1
[ 185.179556] bridge-wlan0: peer interface wlan0 not found, will wait for it to come up
[ 185.179559] bridge-wlan0: attached

Ubuntu Installation :: Hard Drive With 0 Space On It

Jan 24, 2010

I downloaded the Ubuntu installer for windows and it gave me a pop-up saying:
256MB of memory are required for installation. Only 233MB are available. Installation may fail in such circumstances. Do you wish to continue anyway?
This is an odd situation because when I finished installation of Ubuntu the first time (I uninstalled it,) it wasn't responsive and said my hard drive had 0 space on it. I still have about 23GB left on my disk. How do I clear out space so the installation can work properly?

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 Does Not Detect Any Drive Space?

Oct 18, 2010

I am attempting to install 10.10 over my 9.10 installation, but the installer says I don't have the required 2.6GB of free drive space. This problem only occurs with my 120GB SATA drive. If I plug in my old 80GB ATA drive (in a USB enclosure), there's no problem and I'm able to get past the installer's 3-point checklist.This is the first time I've encountered a problem like this and it seems as if no one else has encountered it yet. I can therefore not find this topic on any Linux forum, so I'm quite out in the cold.
