so I am trying to install Ubuntu 13.04 on my laptop and currently have it mounted on a flash drive. When I select the "Install Ubuntu" program, it fails saying that my hard drive is read-only. How do I make it so that it is not read-only from inside Ubuntu? Also, I am a complete noob with Ubuntu so I have to be guided step by step. Thank you!

The problem turned out to be that my hard drive was broken. I got a new one and it is fine. Problem solved.
Open up terminal and install this package:
Then, under the GNOME Menu (in the top left, look through the second sub menu from the bottom) click NTFS-3G and set this up.
Take a look at this for reference:
