I was trying to install Ubuntu 12.04 alongside with windows 7. I only have one hard drive (1TB), and I first installed window 7 on one partition. Now there are about 500GB unlocated space on the disk, and I'd like to install Ubuntu on that part of that partition.
What I did was to boot from a usb stick to install Ubuntu. I have the same problem with the following post.
In the installation, Ubuntu cannot detect the windows 7, so there is no option "install ubuntu alongside with windows 7". I follow the suggestion provided in the above post, and installed the "boot-repair" tool. Then I use the boot-repair tool to create a Bootinfo summary.
Thu url of the bootinfo: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1057933/
I also use "try ubuntu" to use the terminal. When I type "sudo os-prober" in the command line, it returns nothing. It seems that ubuntu cannot detect the installed windows 7.
Since my situation is different from that in the previous post. I only have one hard drive, so the problem should not be related to any raid thing.
Can anybody help me on this? What can I to make ubuntu to detect the windows 7.
