    I had Windows 10 pre-installed with 52428 MB free space. After I set up the swap partition, the remaining free space (51404 MB) show as unusable and I cannot proceed. Can anyone help me?

    • Ravi Saive says:

      @Jerryl,

      You should create a logical partition from disk manager for Ubuntu installation to show up as free space while installing Ubuntu.

      • JerryI says:

        Disk manager shows that I have a 122GB unallocated block on my drive. Is this a logical partition? If not, how do I use disk manager to make it into a logical partition for installing Ubuntu?

        • Ravi Saive says:

          @Jerryl,

          Follow the step Shrink HDD Space for Dual-Boot in the article, that shows how to use disk manager to shrink or create a new logical partition for Ubuntu installation.
