    Hi,

     

    Are you attempting a dualboot or regular install?

     

    Right now, 16 GB HDD/SSD is the required space for installation. See our guide for reference on other guidelines about minimum system specs.

    I beg to differ. 16GB will error out; not in the checks beforehand but at the point one of the dd commands tries to allocate enough space to copy a partition to.

    Without some guidance or documentation, I get lost in the woods, but I definitely see some possibility for improvements of the installer script. For this particular case, it could cycle through the source partitions and measure the actually needed disk space and then measure if that space is available on the target drive.

    I bought a 16GB msata card and it installed just fine

    Hmm. I would say this warrants some investigation, because many users will be pushing the bottom limit of the specs. Will get back to this.
