I am new with Ubuntu, and i am trying to install it on my old PC.

Just after the "Verifying the installation configuration" prompt, i get the "No root file system--No root file system is defined. Please correct this from the partitioning menu" error. i need help.

  • are you able to run Gparted from either the installation you've just done, or from the Live CD? Either way, get it running, take a screenshot by pressing 'print screen', and post it up here as an attachment. I think it will be quite easy to fix. – Sun Dial May 7 '12 at 14:41
  • I installed it by using the windows installer. – pjj May 7 '12 at 14:59
  • So please take a screenshot from when the error message is shown. As you are still in Windows, this should be no problem – Yogu May 7 '12 at 18:08

After allocating the disk space select the mount point as root. refer to the screenshot.
