I don't understand the problem. Is this the right screenshot?

Ah, yeah, sorry. I corrected the screenshot.

I guess the error indicates that there is not enough space to write the MBR and the 2nd part of the boot menu code without overwriting another partition. Maybe an explanation should be added to the page?

Reassigned to Axel, as I am not sure, if CC did work.

No worry, I am subscribed to the ticket mailing list, and always get notified about all changes; no need to CC me.

In any case, yes, the current solution is not optimal, and the "no space available" should be changed if there is no intel partitioning used. I wouldn't mind add a tool tip to the list item, explaining why it's not possible to install there.
