I was in the process of attempting to do a dual boot installation using the "Something Else" option on ubiquity when I ran into an error message. Despite selecting a partition for use that was NOT my primary Windows (C:) partition, it spat back at me the following warning:
"If you continue, the changes listed below will be written to the disks. Otherwise you will be able to make further changes manually. WARNING: This will destroy all data on any parttions you have removed as well as on the partitions that are going to be formatted.
The partition tables of the following devices are changed: SCSI1 (0,0,0) (sda)
The following partitions are going to be formatted: partition #5 of SCSI1 (0,0,0) (sda) as ext4 partition #6 of SCSI1 (0,0,0 (sda) sd swap"
I'm concerned as to if my primary Windows partition will be destroyed due to the whole part about removed drives' data being destroyed, ostensibly in spite of not selecting them. Am I interpreting this warning correctly or should I proceed with the installation?
