Installing Ubuntu 8.04

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey, I've tried a couple times, but I'm having issues with the partition process, can anyone help me out? I'll post a picture of my Disk manager so that you can see the way my drives are set up. Thanks again

Also I'm re-downloading the iso, just incase, as you can see in the pictures, but its going at 700 kb/s so it shouldn't take too long.

Alright, Im on my laptop now, and i followed the guide up to where it said, choose the Guided resize, but when i try to resize i get this message "ERROR!!! Parted can't resize partitions managed by Windows Dynamic Disk." The guide doesn't say what to do if this happens. Any ideas?

Are you trying to resize the partition you are currently using? If so, try a boot disk that will resize outside of windows.

I heard this was pretty good.

Delete that partition in Windows and just let Ubuntu make it for you.
