I've windows 7 installed in my SSD and trying to install ubuntu 14.04 in same SSD drive. But when I try to install ubuntu alongside windows it shows only HDD in the drive selection list. If I try to manually select SDD as boot loader installation device an error message is shown "no root file system is defined", although I chose sda1 as boot loader.

Note that I'm not using RAID array in SSD.

Just resolved the problem. Created a new partition in SSD with EXT4 file system and installed ubuntu there.
