    Not enough disk space


    I use windows and I want to install linux redhat beside it .
    So, in windows, I shrinked my Local Disk C 120gb, with Disk Management (control panel) .
    During installation of redhat, I got to the step where I have to choose the partition where it will be installed .
    First, I tried the 4th option ( use free space to create a partition), but it gave me error: Not enough disk space .
    So, I tried the 5th option ( create a new partition) . It showed me the partitions on my pc , and showed me : Free, of size 120 gb .
    I tried to create a new partition, but it gave me the same error .

    Why is this happening although I have 120 gb free (unallocated) ?
    I hope anyone could help me solve this problem .
    Thanks you .

    Hi!

    Can you use the live cd of Red Hat, go to a terminal and execute the ff:

    # fdisk -l
    # df -h

    Please post your output here.

    I would guess you have four primary partitions already which is why you are having the problem. Since you don't post partition information there's not much anyone can do but guess. Why can't you use the Live CD? How are you trying to do the installation?
