This question already has an answer here:

I bought an HP ENVY TouchSmart 15t-j000 Quad Edition Notebook PC laptop with a 24GB mSSD customization. I want to install Ubuntu in a dual boot setup alongside the existing Windows 8 OS.

I've disabled Secure Boot and Intel Smart Response Technology, but when I try to install Ubuntu, I'm unable to identify any 24GB partition into which I can install / (the root partition).

Any kind of help would be highly appreciated.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Are you trying to do a dual boot or a single boot install? – karel Jul 12 '13 at 2:51
dual boot it. I do want to retain windows 8 also. – gaara87 Jul 13 '13 at 3:26

Firstly if you are using 13.04 (or 12.10) then there's no need to disable secure boot - in fact Windows 8 won't boot with it disabled AFAIK. When you boot from the CD and go into Files, is the SSD shown there?
