Hi guys, I am new to Linux and fedora, and I am trying to create a partition on my pc which is currently running windows 8. I am trying to install Fedora 19 on this partition but I am getting an error saying that there is not enough memory in the disk. I already reduced the size of the partitions I currently have and left 100 GB of unallocated space (Fedora said it needed only about 7GB to install the system). However, when trying to create the mount points (both automatically and manually)it says it does not have enough space on the disk. this error appears even when creating the mount point /boot which is only 500mb. what is happening and how can I fix this???? thanks

I got the same problem, and I have left an formatted partition of 135GB free of space and it's asking me to created manually but when I tried it just won't do it and nothing happens.

Anyone has any solutions or ideas how to fix it?

Please help.

Hi, i got the message when fedora wanted to make everthing automatic. So i made the partitioning manualy. Best thing is to make your partitions via a windowsprogram or gparted. Then choose select the partitons and mountpoints manualy and go. That worked for me.
