When I install a Linux I don't install to a "partition" but leave unpartitioned space for the Linux to install to. I let the installer guide my partitioning otherwise, blammo.
How to fix this? Well I usually wipe the drive or remove partitions and boot my Linux DVD to try again. At least you didn't write you needed to save some Windows.
I tried to install kali linux in a disk partition of my hdd. An error occured during the instalation and it stopped. After my computer automatically restarted it only boots from cd/dvd. I go to boot menu to choose manualy to boot from my hdd and when I select it, it boots from cd again. I need help with this issue please!!
