I am on a Windows 7 system trying to install Fedora 15 Linux.
I am using Fedora 15 live image which I burned onto a DVD and booted. According to instructions I've found in a tutorial I go into the system tools and choose install to hard drive. I have previously shrunk the Windows system drive to free up approx 200 GB of unallocated space. I did this through:
Control Panel → Administrative tools → Computer management → Windows Disk Manager
While I try to install Fedora on the harddrive I run into two problems:
I can't install it because it says "no free space available to create partition".
It doesn't matter if I choose the auto partition option or the custom partition option. Choosing the custom partitioning option I don't know which partitions I need to create. Terminology such as LVM and PV are all new to me.
After a random interval I am forced to re-login as a live user which kills the installation program and forces me to restart the installation process.
Does anyone know how to solve these problems?
