When installing Ubuntu, right after partitioning, I get the following error:

the attempt to mount a file system with type ntfs in SCSI1 (0,0,0), partition #4 (sda) at /windows failed.

What does this mean and how do I fix it?
I'm trying to install Ubuntu alongside windows 8.

    Just don't mount Windows, get rid of /windows and proceed, or quit the installer and start again. Jul 19, 2014 at 16:36
