I have a PC with 3 Hard-drives. I am trying to install Ubuntu 14.01 onto one of them. I have tried now 3 times and came nowhere. I used the “Something else” option. After all the installation procedures, I like to reboot the PC , I have to use the BIOS switching to try and just get an ERROR = [ No such partition see grub rescue ] ? I am also than unable to see the “Ubuntu drive” with windows7. Just gone ! If I reboot with Ubuntu live CD than I can see all 3 drives ? Please help, what do I make wrong.
I have retyped all the info from the Ubuntu Installation screen .
The “tick” is greyed out and I cannot get rid of it.
I have to use Win7 Disk Management to re-format the drive and make a swap partition and than I am back at square 1.
Copied from photo taken of the screen.
