I bought Lenovo laptop couple of days ago, it comes with original windows 8. I formatted the entire hard disk and installed windows 8.1 pro instead and made 4 partitions
file systems - primary. c - primary. d, e, f - logical extended partitions.
I left about 40GB space to install ubuntu 12.04 lts ... I disabled fast boot, I chose legacy boot from the bios ... I put the ubuntu on the flash drive and loaded loaded into the live mode successfully, I start the installation and I have two options for the partitioning
- erase everything
- something else
I click on something else and it shows my entire hard disk and it is empty 1tb free space.
It does not see the windows at all. If I close the installation and go through the folders I can navigate to the windows partitions normally, the GParted shows only hard disk and it is free too.
So I cannot install it ... it is driving me crazy for the past three days ... I tried different versions of ubuntu 12.04 lts, 13.10 ... 32bits ... 64bits
and all the same thing.
Please please please help me.
Oh the hard disk is 1tb hdd - 8gb ssd (hybrid disk). Thank you very much in advance.
