I got a 400 GB hard disk with 200 GB allocated to windows vista and 200 GB unpartitioned space. During the installation I selected "Install ubuntu alongside windows vista". Then I clicked on Install now but I was not given the choice of choosing the size of /, swap and home partitions. Are the sizes automatically chosen for you? Thanks.
Install ubuntu alongside windows vista try
do something else. That will hopefully provide the option for choosing the size of /, swap and home partitions. Thanks.
Yes, "install alongside *" is an automated installation option and the sizes are chosen for you. As @REGZEN said, if you want to control the way your HD is partitioned choose "do something else".
