I want to install Ubuntu on an old Windows Vista laptop.
I need to maintain the Vista (yes, I know, it sucks), so I decided to create a partition alongside while installing it.
But I don't know what to do after I select "something else".
The next screen shows the partition list:
/dev/sda /dev/sda1 ntfs size:1572 MB used:145 MB /dev/sda2 ntfs size:198475 MB used: unknown Windows Vista (loader)
And that's all I've got there.
If I select /dev/sda and then click "New Partition Table..." I get this message that says "You have selected an entire device to partition. If you proceed with creating a new partition table on the device, then all current partitions will be removed".
I don't want to remove all partitions... but I just have the windows loader as the big partition that has almost the whole disk.
What should I do?
I've installed ubuntu before and other windows machine, but in the first case I did have some free allocated space... I don't know how to manage this, when I've read that you should not touch the windows loader partition...
