This typically means that ntfsresize has failed, one common cause is if the
windows partition is dirty due to windows not being shut down cleanly. Try
booting back into windows and shutting down cleanly. You can also play with
ntfsresize on the command line.

(Obviously the installer is missing a proper error message here.)
