What happens when you try to install Ubuntu 12.04? What kind of error message do you receive when you reach the partitioning step? – Masroor Mar 9 '13 at 4:13
Nothing. I mean, no partitions in the installation windows. I can't push continue because i didn't select anything. It says sdb as a disk but with no partitions on it. Thanks! – Soledawn Mar 11 '13 at 4:10
