Currently my system has Windows 8 Pro. I want to install Ubuntu alongside Windows. I have Ubuntu 13.04,13.10 and 10.10 disks. Whenever I try to install Ubuntu there are two problems:

  1. When I reach the page to select the partition, the partitions are showing wrongly. Actually I have 3 partitions on my Hard disk. But the installation process is showing only two. C: drive is shown properly. D: and E: drive are shown in combination as a single partition. Besides these are 100MB and 1MB partitions are also shown.

    • Here, am confused. I don't know what to do here.
  2. I also tried the Install alongside option, but it is getting stopped due to some error like: Stopped by signal 15.

    • How can I solve these problems ?
