I cannot install Ubuntu because it makes the claim that no drive space is available. In reality it is simply not detecting my hard drive, although it is physically hooked up.
Update: I am pretty sure it has nothing to do with jumpers, the hard drive has none so it is probably default/master, the dvd drive is slave.
In any case, I arrived here because upon attempting to install Ubuntu it sends me to that page with the check list after I choose the language, there is no window that appears between choosing the language and making sure I have drive space and internet connection.
I have a western digital SATA hdd ~500 GB and the BIOS is AMIBIOS 08.00.15.
How should I proceed with installing Ubuntu 12.10 in this case?
