Dual boot>Fedora 16 on Win7: ERROR Could no allocate partition...

ERROR: Could not allocate requested partition, not enough free space on disks.

Desktop PC running Win7 with 1 - 250GB HD >

C: 13779GB NTFS Primary (Main Windows 7)

E: 85.41GB NTFS Logical (Totally empty, wanted to install Fedora 16 here) NOTE: E: had Ubuntu installed on it a year or so ago but have since wiped it clean and just used for storage)

H: 9.68 GB NTFS Primary (Win 7 Storage/BU)

When I try to install from Live CD it shows my HD as follows:

sda

sda1 - 9915 NTFS

sda2 - 141093 HTFS

sda3 - 87463 Extended

 sda5 - 87463 NTFS

Free 2

=============== Have tried to select both sda3 and sda5 as standard partition, Mount point "/", file system type - ext4, and marked to "fill to max."

Every time I get the error: Could not allocate requested partition, not enough free space on disks.

Have searched hi and lo to resolve with no luck and am hoping someone here can let me know what the problem is and how to fix it.
