I'm trying to install 14.04.3 LTS along side Windows 10 until I get the hang on Linux (this is my first experience with Linux).
I'm using a DVD to install, which has created a dual boot option when I start my Presario CQ57 laptop up.
I'm following the instructions listed here - http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/install-ubuntu-desktop (Step 4 doesn't give the option of installing alongside another OS, so I selected 'something else').
I created a partition in Windows 10 in the disk managment and allocated space for 14.04.3 (211GB) and was a ntfs.
Everything seems to work in the installation process up to the point where I have to select the partition and create a root etc. - It doesn't seem to recognise and/ or list the partition I created in Windows 10 disk management (or at least I'm not sure if it does). The listed choices are:
- /dev/sda1 1MB Windows 7 (loader)
- /dev/sda2 ntfs 208MB Windows 7 (loader)
- /dev/sda3 ntfs 258328MB - This looks like the amount space remaining in the drive after I created the partition
- /dev/sda4 ntfs 241568MB (12304MB used) Windows 7 Recovery Environment (loader) - The used space in this option looks like the same amount of space used in the partition I created.
I have no idea which one of these above I should or shouldn't attempt to use
"New Partition" doesn't hilight to click on any except on /dev/sda, and if I do that, I get a warning saying it will wipe everything.
So, can anyone tell me what I need to do here, or which Partition I need to use to continue the installation?
