Hello everyone My Laptop runs on Windows vista.And I just downloaded Opensuse 11.4 KDE in want to Dual Boot So I first Created around 25GB of Unallocated Space Using Disk Management in Vista and Ran SUSE live from a CDROM But i cant seem to understand the disk partition and where suse will be installed.I want to install suse only in my unallocated space.How come other distros automatically detect unallocated space.Please help.Used to tun linux virtually but i thought i’ll dual boot it.Thanks.
The installer generally does see the space. Are you sure that you just don’t understand partitioning? In any case you can tell the installer exactly how you want things setup. Note that sometimes Windows has 4 partitions setup. You can only have 4 primary partitions max. So without knowing exactly how yours is setup it is hard to say what the problem is. If you boot the CD to the desktop can you tell us the output of fdisk -l run as root?
