Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I got a new computer (HP Envy h8-1534) pre-installed with Windows 8, and came across an interesting issue while attempting to install Ubuntu.

So, as I install, I don't get that slide asking whether or not I want to install side by side with another operating system, wipe the entire disk, or make my own configuration.

I get this slide instead:

Click on the image to see a full-resolution version.

If I push anything, it then gives me the message: "Ubuntu has experienced an internal error."

I then tried using an Ubuntu 12.04.2 disk that worked fine for me in the past, and got exactly the same problem.

Does the hard drive is it ok? –  Radu Rădeanu May 7 '13 at 16:26
Yes, the computer is brand new, and Windows 8 boots up fine. –  IWantFroyo May 7 '13 at 16:35
I'm using the 64 bit version, Radu. –  IWantFroyo May 7 '13 at 17:24
Two possible reasons: 1. The computer came with 4 primary partitions, the maximum allowed. 2. The computer has a small SSD used as cache that Ubuntu views as RAID0 and can't use. –  user68186 May 7 '13 at 18:01
Looks like your HDD is not being recognized, check your BIOS to see what configuration is available for your HDD. –  kingmilo May 7 '13 at 18:14
