I have laptop less than year old with preinstalled Windows 8 (now updated to 8.1). I'd like to install Ubuntu alongside with Windows, I have read many instructions on web and watched tutorials on Youtube, but still one question remains.
I have Hp laptop, with 'local disk (C:)' and 'RECOVERY (D:)'. I would like to avoid manual partitioning because I don't have the confidence to mess with that :). I've seen in the instructions on web that I could use the 'Install alongside Windows' option and it would create the partitions automatically, but all the examples are having Windows with only C: disk.
So the question is: will it make any difference to have also the D: disk? Can I use the 'Install alongside Windows' option?
(I've booted my laptop already from LiveUSB and selected the Try Ubuntu, and checked that I had the 'Install alongside Windows' option visible, just didn't have the guts to do it then :)..)
