Hello

HP Mini 210

I am trying to install windows starter 7.

Currently I have installed fedora 14 xfce. And I have allocated 24 GB NTFS for hard disk for the windows partition.

My current partitions are as follows:
Code:
/dev/sda2              97G  4.9G   91G   6% /
tmpfs                 494M   92K  494M   1% /dev/shm
/dev/sda1             485M   68M  392M  15% /boot
/dev/sda5             169G   26G  135G  16% /home


I have created a boot USD to install windows starter 7.

When the computer boots into the windows setup and I selected the partition I want to install windows on. I get the following message:
Code:
"Setup was unable to create a new system partition or locate an existing system partition."


This is setup displaying all my partitions:
Code:
Disk 0    Partition 1    500MB    0    Primary
Disk 0    Partition 2    97.7GB    0    Primary
Disk 0    Partition 3    4GB    0    Primary
Disk 0    Partition 4    171.3GB    0    Logical
Disk 0    Partition 5    24.6GB    24.5    Logical <-- Trying install on this partition NTFS


I have also tried to delete the partition in setup and create a new one. And also tried to format the partition.

However, I still get the same error message.

Many thanks for any advice,
