I have two hard drives on my computer, one SSD with windows (C:) and another for storing documents (F:). I created a free space on F: to install Ubuntu alongside Windows 7.

Can you confirm my partition settings are correct ?

Also what should I select for boot loader installation?

    Yes. Your partition settings are correct and the device for boot loader installation is /dev/sda. – kyodake Dec 19 '14 at 23:18
  • Thank you, but when I clicked on "Instal Now" I had an error, apparently my installation media is corrupted. – onimojo Dec 19 '14 at 23:26
  • For issues with the integrity of the installation medium see Installation/CDIntegrityCheck and/or HowToMD5SUM. If this doesn't solve your problem, look for related question or open your own. – David Foerster Dec 19 '14 at 23:57
  • The CD integrity check went fine. I restarted my computer and clicked immediately on Install. The first I messed around with the system a bit. – onimojo Dec 20 '14 at 0:31

The partitions look alright.

I would put the boot loader on sda, because it's faster and that's where the operating systems reside anyway.

  • the /dev/sda is my SSD where the Windows installation is. Isn't it where the bootloader should be? – onimojo Dec 20 '14 at 0:09
  • But the partition table on sda is reported empty. Weird… – David Foerster Dec 20 '14 at 1:49
