This question already has an answer here:

I bought an HP ENVY TouchSmart 15t-j000 Quad Edition Notebook PC laptop with a 24GB mSSD customization. I want to install Ubuntu in a dual boot setup alongside the existing Windows 8 OS.

I've disabled Secure Boot and Intel Smart Response Technology, but when I try to install Ubuntu, I'm unable to identify any 24GB partition into which I can install / (the root partition).

Any kind of help would be highly appreciated.

    Are you trying to do a dual boot or a single boot install? – karel Jul 12 '13 at 2:51
  • dual boot it. I do want to retain windows 8 also. – gaara87 Jul 13 '13 at 3:26

Firstly if you are using 13.04 (or 12.10) then there's no need to disable secure boot - in fact Windows 8 won't boot with it disabled AFAIK. When you boot from the CD and go into Files, is the SSD shown there?
