The Ubuntu installer does not recognize my 1 TB HDD, only my SSD. I can still see the HDD via nautilus and I can change the partitions via gparted, but no matter what the Ubuntu installer won't recognize it.

Proof.

I've tried 12.04, 12.10, 13.04, 13.10, and Linux Mint 15; all of them have the same problem. If it matters I do currently have Windows 8 installed on one of the partitions on my HDD.

Also, in the past I have had Ubuntu installed on this HDD so I don't know why this problem just randomly appeared.
