I would like to keep my Linux partitions and install Windows 8 (currently have XP) to another partition.
I tried it on another computer, where I had a Linux partition, but didn't need to keep it. There was also an XP partition, but that wasn't good enough for Win8. The Windows 8 partitioner is... not very good and only allowed me to create a new Windows partition to install to after deleting all previous partitions.
Any ideas how I could prepare the partition setup in such a way that Windows 8 would just use some of the ready made partitions and leave my Ubuntu install alone?
(Sorry if dup, could only find ones for doing it the other way.)
The error I get is 0x803000024. Google returns results where the "solution" is always either to unplug all other drives (I got this with only one HDD) or remove all partitions (which I'm trying to avoid).
