Hello. If you are shrinking the existing partitions from Live CD, I would suggest you rather shrink the partition from within Windows itself. Create a new partition while being logged into Windows, format it in ext3 format. Then, reboot. The Live CD should now be showing the new partition as LINUX partition or simply ext3 formatted partition. Continue installation in this partition. Hope it helps.Thanks.

Hello. While in Windows , create a new disk volume (if you have free space) or by shrinking other volumes. Format this new volume in ext2 or ext3 format. Then, insert DVD and reboot. Hopefully, the installation CD would recognize this ext3 formatted volume as LINUX partition. You can, then, continue installation in this partition. It worked for me.

Thanks. Hope it helps.
