My RAID array is dying and I had planned to install a distro on my backup drive to boot into as my CD drive is junked and my old 780i refuses to boot from USB. I downloaded the installer MSI. I see it lets me choose installation drive as well as size but has no repartitioning options or Folder installation options.
tl;dr- I have a 2TB NTFS backup drive I want to install ubuntu on and set the drive as bootable without losing any of my data. What is the behavior of the installer, it's rather ambiguous.
EDIT: I should clarify, my backup drive has 1 partition.
