Help woth the partitioner

Postby Muscar v2 on Sat Aug 09, 2008 8:20 pm

This is where I'm at right now:

And I want to dualboot Linux mint with my current windows XP installation. But as you can see there is no guided selection for that and I don't know how to do it manually. I would appreciate some help.

Hi
Im a newbie too.
I installed linux with windows yesterday.
I followed this guide: viewtopic.php?f=42&t=13991
I found it really easy and i used manual partitioning (in the guide).

Really easy to follow. Give it ago.

Hi
I believe the resize partition option is not there because you are already trying to install it.
You need to resize the partition before doing the install.
Have a look at the guides first few instructions and it says:
Once the LiveCD loads up, go to MintMenu>Administration>PartitionEditor.

Damn, I restarted my comp and it still won\t work, the first thing I did was to start GParted. I think I may know the problem tough, I\m running the live CD from Unetbootin: http://lubi.sourceforge.net/unetbootin.html

May this be the problem?
