When installing Ubuntu from USB, Ubuntu installer recognizes previous Windows 8 OS but I don't get the option to install alongside Windows 8. I only get the option to replace Windows 8 or "Something Else". I have an Acer Aspire 5742-7653. It came with Windows 7 and I then installed Windows 8. Any idea on how to fix this or bypass this by choosing the "Something Else" and creating but own partitions? I want to keep everything from Windows 8 and give Ubuntu about 60GB
