repartitioning windows failed
Posted on 2006-07-05
I have a laptop (dell mobile precision m50) with a 60 gb hard drive.
I have just reinstalled Win 2K on it and now I am trying to install linux for dual boot.
I tried OpenSuSE 10.1 and Mandriva Linux Free 2006.
In both cases, the attempt to modify the windows partition fails.
OpenSuSE gives an error code -3027
and Mandriva says:
Partitioning failed: ntfsresize failed:
Device name: /dev/hda1
NTFS volume version: 3.0
Cluster size: 4096 bytes

Current device size: 60011610624 bytets (60012MB)
Checking filesystem consistencty ...

Outside of the volume reference for inode 8.
What can I do?
