When I select "Install Ubuntu alongside Windows 7", the only partition available is my 20 GB recovery drive. How do I get the Ubuntu installer to recognize my primary 600 GB harddrive and create a partition there?

May I ask for a print screen of your disk management (if in windows)? Also refer How can I install Ubuntu without removing Windows? –  AzkerM Jan 27 '14 at 6:26
