Trying to install Ubuntu on a new Toshiba Satellite Pro C850. When trying to install 12.04.2 but it wants to over write the entire disk . . . ditching Windows 8 completely. Is the only way to dual boot is to use gparted to resize the disk? I don't feel I am experienced enough to try that. Is there an easy way to install Ubuntu on this machine without overwriting Windows 8? Oh I have had no problems installing Ubuntu on other machines.
The installer will only list possible methods of installing.
