Installing Ubuntu in already created (but empty) partition
My current OS is Windows Vista and I want to install Ubuntu 10.10 as a dual-boot. I burned a cd with the .ISO-file and started the installation. Everything went well: during the Ubuntu installation process I cleared the necessary space and the disk was formatted. I continued but when I wanted to continue from the "Enter user/password"-info page I couldn't. The continue button wouldn't work. I tried to go back and go forth again but in the end I had to abort the installation.
I started all over and now I want the Ubuntu-installation to be in the already created partition which is (almost) empty. When I select the "Install Ubuntu alongside current OS"-option it divides the space for Vista again. I then try to use the advanced option and choose the Ubuntu 10.10 in the bar over the buttons (can't remember what it is called, sorry). When I press install it tells me that I haven't defined the root files. What am I doing wrong? Thank you very much!
