I've got a Windows 8 (final version, no preview) installed in my pc. Now I wanted to install Ubuntu like I've done a thousand times before. Strange thing is,
gparted (started from live USB-Stick) sees my system disk as completely unallocated although it has one huge ntfs partition with Windows 8 on it. So I booted into Windows again and used the disk management tool to shrink that partition and create a new one in the free space. I formated that one to fat32. I still got the same behavior in
gparted. Does anyone have an idea? My harddisk is a Samsung 830 Series SSD and the mainboard has UEFI.
Tried a 12.10 beta1 stick now. It tells me that the volume contains GPT signatures and maybe was corrupted by a program that doesn't understand. With this new information I found this but am not really sure what to do.
