I'm running a Linux live USB with ubuntu 14 on it. From there I try to prepair my SSD for dual boot Windows 10 and Ubuntu 14. From the beginning it did not work very well and I had to reboot after the installation process started because it got hung up in between. Now, it is impossible for me to partition the SSD. I entered gparted while in live mode and it also creates a new parition table (MSDOS/MBR). Now I tried to create the following partitions:
- ntfs, primary, no label 203.59 GiB #for Windows 10
- ext4, primary, label='/', 27.34 GiB #for Ubuntu 14
- linux-swap, no label, 1.95 GiB #intended swap area
I don't know where the weird GiB numbers come from, I typed in 200 000 MB, 28 000 MB, and 2 000 MB.
Now this is the error that gparted gave me:
(sry no internet for the live mode atm)
Because tatsu asked for it, this is the install history of my ssd (not proud of it): In the very beginning I succesfully installed Win7 on it. Then I tried dual boot with Ubuntu14 which did not work, because it could not successfully create partitions on the unallocated space. Then, because I broke the boot loader or something in the process I managed to successfully install win10. Then the same thing happened again and now I am trying to fix the SSD before doing anything else.
Here are the outputs for the different commands:
