I'm attempting to install Ubuntu on my laptop. I want to get rid of windows on it, so I'm doing the full Ubuntu install... It says it's going to take 250 Gigs of memory???
How do I fix this?

I'm trying to install Ubuntu alongside Mac and I have 1 TB of memory. I inserted the install CD, selected a language, and did all that other stuff. When i clicked the "Install Ubuntu alongside Mac OS X" option then clicked "Install now" it went to the screen where you size how much memory you want the two operating systems to share. But it only gave me about 30 Gigs to size from.
I recently installed Ubuntu 11.10 64-bit. I also just got two sticks of 2G DDR 400Mhz ECC Reg. Ram for my computer (It requires ECC Reg for anything a Gig and Up) for a total of 6 Gigs. The motherboard is an H8DCE, if that helps.
Anyway, I installed the ram yesterday, and at first it would detect it all in the bios, but not in Ubuntu (Which only detected 4.8).
I would like to try Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. When I try to install it along with windows 7 I cant select my internal hard drive. I have a 500 Gig drive and i'd like a partion with 100 gigs to start out with. I think the swap has to be something like twice the ram, my machine has 4 gigs. I'd like to dual boot either windows or Ubuntu. Can someone please provide me with screen shots to do this.
I am currently trying to install Ubuntu to run beside my current Windows 7 installation. I'm installing Saucy Salamander 13.10; during installation once booted into the live CD 4 options are offered: Wipe disk, Install security (Or something of the sort), a third that escapes me, and something else.
I am planning to do a fresh install of windows and ubuntu 12.04 on my laptop. I plan to do it with my 4 gb pen drive. What the problem is that I want to have both the bootable windows installer AND ubuntu installer together.
I have a 480 gig SSD as my OS drive. I have a usable partition of 345 gigs, which seems pretty small. According to Disk Manager I have a 101.36 gig partition for hibernation. I did some googling and it sounds like the hibernation partition is supposed to be the size of the amount of physical memory in the system, to allow for a memory dump when the machine goes into hibernation.
I was running Windows 7 on my laptop but installed Ubuntu Linux as well. While installing Ubuntu I made an error and only dedicated 17 Gigs of hard drive space to Ubuntu and the rest to Windows. I would like to split my hard drive more evenly but cannot seem to figure out how to reconfigure Ubuntu to use more than the 17 Gigs. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
