I'm using Windows 8.1, now for education purpose, I try to install Oracle Linux 6.5 as dual boot on my computer.
At the Disk Partition section, I found that I cannot create a Partition, both with
Use free space
and manual install.It shown the error:
Could not allocate requested partitions, not enough free space on disks
In other post, they said about the maximum of 4 MBR for each hard drive, so here is my current partitions (viewed in Paragon Partition Manager on boot CD, saw the same on Windows Disk Management, EASUS Partition Manager):
0: Primary | NTFS | 150GB | Active | Not-hidden
2: Logical | NTFS | 150GB | Not-Active | Not-hidden
3: Logical | Free | 166GB
Unless my USB drive, which I used to install Oracle Linux is also count as a Primary partition (it really shown as Primary, though not in the same Hard drive with the other).
So how can I install it? I really dont want to remove Windows.
An additional question, is that 166GB enough for Oracle Linux and Oracle Database 11g?
