I am currently trying to install Ubuntu to run beside my current Windows 7 installation. I'm installing Saucy Salamander 13.10; during installation once booted into the live CD 4 options are offered: Wipe disk, Install security (Or something of the sort), a third that escapes me, and something else.
My computer is a XPS 15 L521x It has a Intel Core i5, 6 gigs of ram, A 500 gigs 7200 rpm harddrive and a 32 gb cache ssd. It has integrated and dedicated graphics (If that's relevant)
In gparted all my partitions are visible, inclusive of my three windows partitions and an additional ssd partition -There's also the 20 gigs of free storage for Ubuntu. These partitions are also available during the installation. I have tried deleting the dmraid package from terminal but to no avail.
For the Ubuntu installation I shrank my main Data partition which was initially 408 gb and after shrinking became about 390 gb. It's worth mentioning that this is my first installation of linux, and I am unfamiliar with the Linux lingo so if someone could explain in simple terms what to do I'd appreciate it.
