Code: Select all

Windows cannot be installed to this hard disk space. Windows must be installed to a partition formatted as NTFS.

Windows cannot be installed to this hard disk space. The partition is of an unrecognized type.

Have you tried formatting the partition as NTFS? Just a thought.

Boot up to Live Mint with USB/DVD, Menu, Gparted, select your drive/partition, format NTFS.

Just beware that reformatting will delete everything you have in Linux, including the data.

If what you want is dual boot, use gparted from a live CD/USB to resize the partition, create a new NTFS partition for Windows, install Windows and then reinstall grub.

It's better if you move the Linux partition down as Windows sometimes complains if it is not at the top of the disk.
