I have resized my partitions so that I have 150 GIB of space available, but fedora doesn't seem to recognise it or doesn't seem to want to install in it. It says Error checking installation storage configuration under installation destination. I'm dual-booting Ubuntu 16.04 and Fedora 26. EDIT: I also forgot about Windows so I'm actually triple booting. EDIT 2: Out put of sudo fdisk -l

Welcome to ask.fedora. Please boot into Ubuntu, open a terminal and run this: sudo fdisk -l with the last character a lower-case L, and not a 1. Then, edit your question to include the results. This will tell us exactly how your disk is partitioned, and help us answer your question.

I presume that you have Ubuntu on /dev/sda5. What do you have on /dev/sdb6? Where is the 150GB of free space?
