  • possible duplicate of Live USB for Ubuntu 13.10 does't recognize Windows 8 OS; however, if you mean that partitioning tools show the disk as completely empty, see askubuntu.com/questions/343768/… – Rod Smith Nov 23 '13 at 23:05
  • I have the same problem. the answer is not clear at all. I don't see any partition separately but only the entire drive as one partition. I cannot take risk by selecting whole partition and install ubuntu by ruining my installed OS. need help about this. – user264525 Apr 2 '14 at 10:40

Indeed, I've had the same experience with ubuntu 13.10. But, after installing the grub menu was populated with a Windows 8 entry too, and I could dual boot without any problem.
