I got a new 1TB disk - so I installed UBUNTU (13.04 64bit) on it to test it out. I couldn't boot to it for some reason so I deleted the partition in Windows and formatted the drive (NTFS). Then I installed Windows 7 x64 onto the same drive. My plan was to install Ubuntu after the Windows install. When I sparked up the Ubuntu live CD, the installer did not detect my Windows 7 install and asked to wipe the disk or partition manually (instead of "Install alongside Windows..."
So I went into a partition utility in Windows and notice I had on the drive:
GPT Drive 100 MB Partition 128 MB Partition Remaining space, rest of drive
I was surprised to see a GPT partition instead of a MBR?
I do have a UEFI Bios and Win7 x64 - which can handle this, and I don't mind it - however this setup seems to be confusing the Ubuntu installer. I don't want some kind of kooky (possibly) corrupt/broken partition table on this drive (if that's what's going on). Is there any way I can 'fix' this without re-installing windows on this drive? If I do partition manually - would I have issues later on? What's the best way to handle this?
