I've got a new 500 Gb hard drive. I want to dual boot Windows and Ubuntu in it, so I've booted it with Ubuntu and GParted shows me the 500 Gb.
I set up a primary partition for Win7 and logical partitions for Ubuntu and run the installer so the partitioning takes place, but I don't let the whole install finish.
However, once I ran the Win7 installer, it will show me an HD capacity of 465 Gb.
Hm, something must be wrong. I delete all partitions and it still shows me 465 Gb. I boot in Ubuntu and run GParted again, but it also shows 465.
What happened ? I understand that a label of 500 on the hard drive cover does not mean exact 500, but I did not expect 35 Gb to vanish like that.
It's not the partition, it's the whole HD that seems to be reduced. GParted once showed 500Gb, what happened that it will only show 465 now ?
