I have Ubuntu 12.04 on a USB flash drive. I went into BIOS and changed the boot order to prioritizing USB, just to try it out Live. Afterwards, I decided to take the plunge and install Ubuntu as a secondary OS (dual boot). While reviewing some videos, I noted that it should have the choice of dual booting with Windows, overwrite windows.. etc. However, I do not see any of those choices. All I'm seeing is
Erase disk and install Ubuntu or
Something Else. Further it says:
This computer currently has multiple operating systems on it.
Am I reading this wrong?
I don't want to choose option
Erase disk and install Ubuntu and risking on losing the Windows operating system. Is it saying that I have multiple O.S because of me booted it with a USB flash drive?
EDIT: I have since taken a few further steps, but I am still not sure what to do next? I right clicked on Computer>select Management> then select disk management and it shows me 4 partitions. 3 on hard drive, and 1 is Pendrive(the usb) removable. Despite this, it is showing Pendrive as a primary active partition . On disk 0 I have 3 partitions a.)1.46gb active recovery b.) 450.57gb boot, crash dump etc. c.)13.73gb primary partition. Then on disk 1 I have the Pendrive 1.87 gb active, primary partition.
According to partition test in Ubuntu, it shows only 3 partitions( If I'm reading it correctly) But in windows it shows 4( if it includes disk 1). I'm not sure what the RED exclamation point is for on Ubuntu Gpartition test.
Meanwhile, while checking on Partiton in Windows, everything looks fine. All read as Healthy, and C: still has 59% available space.
Here is what I get when I right click on damaged ntsf inside of Gpartition>select Check>select green checkmark. It runs 6 seconds then error message. 0 of 1 operations completed. I tried to save details, but there are no details entered into root box to save.
