I'm attempting to install Ubuntu 12.10 on a new dell inspiron 15z ultrabook, that shipped with windows 8. When I boot from disc (with verified checksums) it works ok, and the
try ubuntu button works, but when I go to install it crashes upon trying to view the partitions on the disc.
Is this related to the newish nature of Windows 8? I'm trying to decide if I need a different computer instead.
