Edit: Updated my question with screenshots
I have a 500 GB built-in hard disk.
I have 3 primary partition.
C: - 100GB - Primary Partition - Windows 7 installed D: - 150GB - Primary Partition E: - 100MB - Primary Partition - System Reserved For Windows 250GB - Unallocated Space
Please note, I already have a ubuntu installation in my windows 7(wubi) Problem is I have ubuntu 13.04, but I need 12.04 LTS.
So I decided to install ubuntu 12.04 LTS in my
250GB Unallocated space
ubuntu-12.04.3-desktop-amd64.iso from official ubuntu site. I burned that in my 8GB transcend flash drive using ubuntu 13.04 built-in
start up disk creator.
I booted my pendrive using boot manager. I selected "install ubuntu", then selected "Something else" option.
I created a Logical partition with size 240GB (ext4 - path
/). I also created another 10 GB Logical partition for Linux swap.
Everything's fine so far. However, I'm unable to proceed.
It says error something like
The creation of swap space in partition #6 of SCSI2 (0,0,0) (sda) failed.
Can someone tell me what is wrong with my steps?
I have added some screenshots to make my situation clear.
1) Free space 247GB available
2) New logical partition with 237GB
3) After 237GB partition 10 GB Free space available
4) Create Linux swap with 10GB
5) Both partition look like this
6) When I click install button, I got this error
7) When I click ignore button, I got this error again
8) When I click "ok" button, I got redirected to this page
9) I restarted my PC, did the same steps again.. This is how it looks like now
10) When I click install, I got this error
11) So I edited my partition and selected "Mount point"
12) Now it looks like this
13) When I click install button, I got this error again.
Is it really a bug with linux 12.04.3 or am I missing something?
gpartedon un-allocated space create an
Extendedpartition. When a new
Extendedpartition will be created then divide it by creating two
Logicalpartitions one for
Ubuntu 12.04installation and one for your
Swap. So after creation of extended it would show
/dev/sda4 : Extendedunder that
/dev/sda6. Result may vary also but should be in same format. Just give it a try, I am much sure it will work for you.
