F18 installation-problems

view story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hi. Created usb installer using F17 application. F18 would not initially install. I was informed during the install process my hard drive had 1Mb free space and the rest was rest as allocated space (in fact it had 232Gb free). installation could not proceed and was not permitted. Several times this was consistently repeated. A format the hard drive option was not available. However, the option to shred the partitions was available. I did use it (yes I have cursed myself since). Subsequently during the install process hard drive space previously read as allocated was now read asunallocate (HowTos)
