(gparted) created partition isn't considered to be free space.
You could go back to gparted, and remove your partitions, making it a
You can explore your XFCE installer options, to remove all partitions
on a drive, and start from square one. With other spins, you can do
this relatively painlessly. If you don't go with automatic settings,
you just have to think carefully about what size partitions you want to
