I trying to install Ubuntu Desktop 16.04 on a system with Windows 10 and Suse Leap 42.1 already installed and running. Ubuntu's installer running from a DVD has very limited partitioning flexibility. I created two Ext4 partitions using SuSE but Ubuntu won't recognize them. It will only allow Ubuntu to use the entire disk.
Will a Ubuntu 16.04 Live CD allow me to use the new empty partitions and, if so, how do I create a 16.04 Live cd/dvd? The only references I've seen for live cds relate to earlier versions of Ubuntu.
I have Ubuntu Server 16.04 installed on a 2nd PC. Can I use it to create a Live cd?
I made the boot USB device but the Ubuntu partitioner on it was the same as on the install DVD. I have two hard drives in my machine, both with multiple partitions. The Ubuntu partitioner recognizes the partitions on my #2 drive but shows no partitions on my #1 (Windows boot) drive. This is in the "Something Else" in the install partition routine. I don't want to create new partitions on the boot drive fearing that it will destroy my Windows 10 folders. Something that may confuse the Ubuntu installer is that I have SUSE Leap 42.1 installed on my #2 HD. I'd like to have access to both distros. Would another Linux distro offer a more robust HD installation tool?
