This guides shows me how to partition my HD for Linux Mint. I'm trying to install Mint as a guest client on Windows 7 hosted VirtualBox. I used to let it freely partition my allocated space (80GB) but Mint always fails when I try to update or install any large software from the command prompt or update manager.
The error is
DISKFULL and the OS hangs, therefore I have to power it off/forcefully shut it down.
Later on, I fail to boot it up again. It freezes. An error is displayed from the kernel stating that I need to upgrade or change the current BIOS; At this point Linux Mint is screwed up.
I have no idea how to bring it back. I always have to reinstall the OS and currently I am looking for information that helps me partition the HD myself. The link above helps, but I am thinking there are several places in Linux partitions (folders) that I need to divide my HD, while the above explanation only offers me 4 divisions (where are others, i.e.
/mnt, etc. ?).
