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:
/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:
"Setup was unable to create a new system partition or locate an existing system partition."
This is setup displaying all my partitions:
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,
