I am currently running Windows 7 on a Dell Inspiron R17 N7110, and I'd like to run Ubuntu alongside Windows.
I need to shrink the Windows partition somehow so that I can install Ubuntu. Currently, when trying to resize the partition within Ubuntu, Ubuntu wants to format the Windows partition to ext4.
When I try to shrink it in GParted, I hit the maximum and minimum partition size, which just so happens to be the HDD size and the HDD size minus one MiB, respectively.
When I try to shrink it in Windows, it tells me I can't shrink it because it is in use.
I have already spoken with people at AskUbuntu, and they have redirected me here.
Thanks in advance.
