This question already has an answer here:
I am using Windows 8.1 currently on a Toshiba Satellite p755 (core i5, 600gb hdd). I created an unallocated space of 30GB to install Ubuntu. But when I try to install, Ubuntu says it is unused.
Then I went back to windows and created a new volume on Ubuntu again but it only sees the partition which has the Windows and the other partitions are combined together with the 30GB is not seen and also my D and E drives are combined. can anyone help me out with this.
I have tried googling; where people say all my HDD need to be on a primary rather basic but not dynamic MBR. How can i convert my HDD to primary so i can install Ubuntu if that is the case?
