    LVM2 Partition has 0 B Unused Space


    Apparently I cannot upgrade from Fedora 15 to Fedora 20 using fedup, so I've decided to install Fedora 20 from Live USB.

    The problem is the single physical hd is partitioned as shown here, with EXT4 boot partition and an LVM2 partition that has 0 B of unused space. How can I repartition this hard drive without erasing data? Thanks for your help.

    You can try to shrink your LVM, then shrink your volume group, then shrink your partition. This will be pretty risky. I highly advise backing up your data first.

    Was the LVM partition installed this way? This machine was recently given to me as is.
