    Default Only 500MB HD Left after Installation BK5, Unetbootin

    I am having a space issue after a fresh installation of BackTrack 5, here's what I tried:

    Brand new installation with unetbootin on hard drive C, rebooted, everything works but can't install a lot because only 500MB left on File System. I realized I didn't partition it's own space so I:

    uninstalled unetbootin,
    partitioned an extra D drive for 20GB in windows,
    then installed unetbootin with BK5 iso again.
    I then coppied the files from C to D
    and redirected the boot.ini from C to D
    everything worked again, but still only 500MB left for applications with my extra 20BG no where to be found.

    I lost, as you can tell. Everything works, it's just the space I'm having trouble with.

    i'd suggest wiping the entire drive and installing backtrack/Grub onto the entire drive. Once inside b|t install, you can use Gparted to re-size your partitions how you actually want them, and stick winblows on it as an afterthought into what space you want to afford it.

    i get the feeling you somehow fsck*d your partition table. re-write it using gparted. easiest fix
