This question already has an answer here:

I am trying to install Ubuntu and it goes into the installer, but the only disk it sees is the usb drive. I shrank my primary partition in windows, so I have space ready. I disabled secure boot in Bios. Do I need something more?

Yes, you have to go into the BIOS (F2 key at startup), select System Configuration, then click on the SATA Operation box and choose the AHCI option.
