I have two hard drives installed on my laptop. One has Windows 8.1 installed and I want to put Ubuntu (13.10) on the second drive.

I partitioned 200GB of space from the second drive.

When the installation reaches the "Installation Type" portion, I only see the Windows drive. "/dev/sda". I do not see the second drive. How can I remedy this?

Thanks in advance!

Assuming you are trying to install ubuntu not alongside with Windows, so base on the installation instruction stated here, on step no.4 choose 'Something else', step no.5 you can select the 2nd hard drive by choosing it in 'Select drive' tab.

hope this helps
