I don't intend to duplicate the question, but I haven't found this same problem.
I'm newbie and now I'm trying to install Ubuntu 12.04 LTS alongside Windows 8.
My storage are partitioned as:
- 120 GB NTFS Windows 8 loader
- 340 GB NTFS My data
- 128 GB Unallocation unit, and I plan to install Ubuntu here.
I tried to install Ubuntu with default option (Install Ubuntu alongside Windows8), let it partition itself. First, I found problem that Ubuntu cannot install grub and it let me choose device myself. I can't choose ext4 which I installed ubuntu in. In this case can I choose the same drive as windows 8 loader to install grub?
Second attempted, I did partition 100 MB ext2 and hope grub installed in here. Installation completely finished without warning. I press restart but grub isn't appear, it boots into Windows 8 automatically.
My question may annoy you guy, but I wanna try Ubuntu really. Help me please.
Thank you very much :)
