Installing Linux Lite on same drive as Windows

(1/3) > >>

freddy888:
I am trying to install Linux Lite to the free space of my 850 EVO SSD inside a Dell Latitude D830, while keeping Windows 10 for now. When i try to do this the Linux Lite installer labels the free space as "unusable". When i select the free space i am given no options other than Revert, which does nothing. Can i install Linux Lite on the free space?

This one https://pixhost.to/show/24/234695034_capture.jpg doesn't show up, and throws an error

So, you might need to upload it again. What format does the "free space" have? You might need to format it first to ext4 before installing Linux Lite.

MiniTool Partition Wizard says it is Unallocated. I could try formatting it to ext4 in Windows but installing Linux to free space has always been the easiest way in the past.

I think it's best if you format the partition from Linux Lite's installer.

That is why i am stuck, there is no option for me to do anything with the free space which the Linux Lite installer labels "unusable".
