I am installing Ubuntu 13.04. I have the installation open on my screen and it runs fine until I get to a part called "Installation Type" which is basically where I choose a partition. I opened Gparted, deleted my Windows partition and made a brand new partition so the only partition there is on my hard drive is one ext4 partition that is flagged to boot and it has 500GB. I have another 500GB of unallocated space.
Basically when I get to this step of the installation, no partitions show up and when I press continue anyway it says this.
No root file system defined. Please correct this from the partitioning menu.
My partition setup:
/dev/sda1 - ntfs - HP_Recovery - 18GB, Unallocated - 450.43GB
/dev/sda4 - Extended - 452GB
Then attached to the Extended partition it says this underneath:
unallocated - unallocated - 1MB
/dev/sda5 - ext4 - 452.89GB
Basically /dev/sda4 is the main partition I want to use and attached to it for some reason is a filesystem that's ext4 and a random unallocated one.
Any idea what I did wrong? I can give more information if needed.
