I personally do not recommend installing Linux alongside Windows,it can cause many problems with your Windows install. Choose the "Something else" option from the LIVE DVD and we can walk you through the steps! You want to install Linux on a separate partition on your hard drive-

i was Choose the "Something else" option 3 from the LIVE USB stick, 

What is included in These Photos, it's like the option of "installing Linux alongside Windows", that Choose there the option Down, where that write "i smaller partiton is hidden, use the advancend  partiton tool for more control"

like this video

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=-kP77ULr6pk#t=140

thanks.

Ramia- How big is the hard drive? the First thing you have to do is create a partition for the Linux install.You can either do that through Windows or using a Gparted Live CD which you can download from Gparted.com then We will walk you through the steps!

Yes - that is fine- you have plenty of space- next,boot up the LIVE DVD of Linux Mint Mate 17.1 and click on INSTALL- it will ask you how you want to install Linux- Pick the option "do something else" then the installer will ask you a few more things like- time zone- username and password- WRITE YOUR USERNAME AND PASSWORD DOWN- you will need it for anything you do on Linux. After that - you will be presented with a page where you will be asked Where do you want to Install- THIs is the part you need to take slowly- your drives will not display as D: and F: but as sda/1 sda2 etc.If you are unsure -pick the partition that is 170 gigs,as in your pic. next you will have to choose a file system- select journaling 4 file system - next you will have to "mount" the drive using this choice- (/) and most important be sure and place the bootloader in the same partition that you are installing in- it will also ask you for a "swap"file but since your drive is large I wouldn't be too worried about that. Just skip that part- also check the box that says "format" and then hit INSTALL. If you get stuck- it's ok just come back and ask more questions.

 

Also- any of the other guys on here,if I have missed anything,please feel free to chime in- I remember how hard it was for me the first few times I did a Linux install1

 WRITE YOUR USERNAME AND PASSWORD DOWN

 

Maybe a good idea at first, just make sure to hide it where no one can find it other than yourself. 

 

I say 'maybe', because in a work environment, normally the writing of passwords is strictly prohibited & for good reason. Anyone whom finds that piece of paper has full access to the computer & can have a field day, if there's enough time. It's best to go with an easy to remember username (like that of the other OS) & if there's no issue, use the password for that account, or recycle an old phone number (not necessarily yours), being sure to place the # sign after ph, Ph or pH for better security, add dashes between the numbers & add a symbol such as @ or * at the end. Something easy to remember, but next to impossible for another to guess. 

 

In the work environment, have seen co-workers outright terminated over sensitive passwords laying on a desk & rightfully so. 

 

Security begins with users habits & password management is often an overlooked one.

It looks like 320.1GB is before partitioning, and 298.09 is after partitioning.

 

I have a 500GB hard disk that says 465.76GB, and a 1TB hard disk that says 0.91TB

 

EDIT: On closer inspection, I see that the sizes of the partitions are also listed as being different, so I'm not sure why this is.

Not all people/companies use the same definition of gigabyte, megabyte, kilobyte, etc. The screenshot from the MiniTool is refering to a gigabyte as 1 073 741 824 bytes, but the screenshot from the Linux installer is using the IEC standard, where a gigabyte is 1 000 000 000 bytes. If you convert the numbers to bytes, you'll see the numbers are quite close.

320.1 x 1 000 000 000 = 320100000000 bytes
298.09 x 1 073 741 824 = 320071700316.16 bytes

The remaining minor size difference of 28299683.84 bytes or 0.02829968384 gigabytes is likely caused by rounding when the tools determine the drive size, which of course messes up the size calculation when converting back to bytes.
