I am trying to install Ubuntu 14.04.1 (64-bit version, from http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop) on my computer where Windows 7 is already installed. I would like to have both Ubuntu and Windows 7 installed on the computer. I have downloaded the Ubuntu, burned it to a disc, and started the installation. In step 4 where I should partition the disk I got the text "This computer currently has no detected operating system. What would you like to do?" Erase disk and install Ubuntu, or Something else. I am interested is it possible to easily install Ubuntu 14.04.1 alongside Windows 7 on my computer (I have limited experience with installation of operative systems), and could I install some earlier Ubuntu version without these problems?
The main problem is that during the installation Ubuntu couldn’t see Windows nor partitions on the disk. I have clicked on Something else, but after that on the next screen I am not asked to install Ubuntu alongside Windows. Instead, I am asked to partition the disk, and the only row that I see displays the full 500GB disk. I partitioned the disk from the Windows and released 200GB on hard disk, but even after that Ubuntu sees just full disk capacity of 500GB. If it could help, my computer is Acer Aspire E15 E5-511G and I installed Windows 7 in legacy boot mode.
Does somebody have any idea how to solve the problem?
