I'm trying to install Linux Mint 17.1 in UEFI mode on an Asus PC with Windows 8.1 preinstalled.
The 250GB-SSD with Windows preinstalled is /dev/sdb/. I partitioned 125GB for use with Ubuntu (Linux Mint 17.1). I set up my Linux partitions as follows:
- 40GB for root / (tried with 20GB before)
- 81GB for /home/
- 4GB as swap.
At some point I get the warning "Disk space full" for the root directory ("/"). Increasing the partition size from 20 to 40GB did not prevent the warning.
When I look at the partition using "Disk" it shows it as full to within about 2GB. Something seems to be loading stuff onto there.
What is going on and how can I install Linux Mint as dual-boot with Windows in UEFI mode?
