Linux live cd - NST installatation- unable to reclaim space?

asked 2017-06-06 08:11:01 -0600

Hello, I am trying to install linux on my computer with the linux live cd and then the issue appeared. I ran the NST installer, everything was okay until I came to the point where I have to create the partitions. My computer is currently doesn't have any operating system - only linux cd live. When I came to the step where I have to create partitions it said that I don't have enough space to create the mounts (root,boot,swap,home) because my SSD disk with the capacity of 120GB has only 4.43 MiB available. I was like okay, I'll reclaim space and everything will be okay.... BUT... when I clicked reclaim space, it showed me my disk with 111.79 used space - I tried to delete it / reclaim space. It looked like I did it successfully but then, the whole installer shut down and window popped up, ''An unknown error has occurred. This program has encountered an unknown error. You may report the bug below or quit the program. I tried to do everything but nothing seems to work. I'd really appreciate your help. I am using the Mate 1.14.0, anaconda installer Thank you!

Welcome to ask.fedora. It's possible that your SSD disk is already partitioned, even if there's no OS on it. Using the live CD, open a terminal from the main menu and run this command: fdisk -l and let us know what it returns. BTW, that's not a 1 or an I, but a lower-case L.
