I wanted to install Kali Linux on my computer that is currently running windows 7 64bits, so I created a 200Gb free partition, made an installation USB key, and everything was running perfectly during the install until when I got to the point where I needed to choose the partition. I chose "manual" but it says that all my hard drive is free and unpartitioned, and I can't format & repartition my HD since I have a lot of useful data that I can't backup externally.

PS : I'm running on a mbr partitionning system & Legacy Bios mode

  • what does fdisk show of that specific drive? – Drav Sloan Aug 5 '15 at 10:24
  • if i entered live mode it dos list my HD as free – java_noob Aug 9 '15 at 19:16
  • I mean, please update your question to show what fdisk shows. I imagine your "created a 200Gb free partition" is labelled incorrectly which is why the installer is claiming it is in use. – Drav Sloan Aug 9 '15 at 19:21
