Ubuntu – Can I install Ubuntu into a Windows Dynamic Volume


I have a hp 6166tx laptop with factory fitted Windows 7 home Edition. I tried to install Ubuntu inside Windows, in a shrink volume(which is dynamic type). But it gives an error in the end and stops the installer.

Is it possible to install ubuntu into a Windows Dynamic Volume? If it is, then how? Please help me with this.

  • It is not possible to install Ubuntu on a dynamic volume/logical partition, you need a primary partition to install Ubuntu. Have you tried instead, installing Ubuntu on Virtual Box? I can assure you the results will be much better.
