Not too sure what you mean there? Is this a clean install on a formatted drive, and you have partitioned it yourself?

Or are you installing Ultimate over another version (upgrade) with existing partitions in place?

I suggest reinstalling, this time doing a full clean install, removing all other versions when prompted.

probably best thing to do is log on to the Administrator account and try doing a disk clean-up /defrag from there, you might not have sufficient permissions as another user.

ctrl+alt+del at the logon screen. Enter Administrator as the username and use the password that you specified during install.
