I am trying to install Ubuntu 64 bit on a Lenovo G500s machine. I have tried installing both 13.10 and 12.04.4 and I am having the same problem with both versions.
When I get to the installation process in the Ubuntu menu, The hard drive is seen as completely unallocated. I have partitioned the hard drive using Windows partition manager.
I would include a screen shot, but apparently I can't b/c I am new to the forums.
So, Windows partition manager sees the drive as follows,
Disk 0 - 931.51 GB System Reserved 100 MB NTFS (Healthy, Primary Partition) C:) 488.18 GB NTFS (Healthy, Primary Partition) Unallocated 443.23 GB.
When in the Ubuntu installer, I ran
sudo fdisk -l and this was the output.
Disk /dev/sda: 1000.2 GB, 1000204886016 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 121601 cylinders, total 1953525168 sectors Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical /physical) : 512 bytes / 4098 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 4096 bytes/ 4096 bytes Disk identifier: 0xc0bbb31d Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 * 2048 206847 102400 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT /dev/sda 2 206848 1024002047 511897600 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
Any fixes that people can recommend to get the Ubuntu installer to see my partitions would be greatly appreciated!
I am happy to answer any questions!
