    Re: Installing Ubuntu alongside Windows 7

  2. [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu 64bit installer doesnt detect windows 8.1 64bit

    Your current Win8 is in MBR mode. The diskmanagment you posted does not have the needed fat32-EFI partition for GPT. So linux needs to be booted and install also in MBR mode. Have never used RUFUS...
  3. [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu 64bit installer doesnt detect windows 8.1 64bit

    Your internal hdd is sda as per parted -l, so the correct command is 'fixparts /dev/sda' not /dev/sdc.
  4. [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu 64bit installer doesnt detect windows 8.1 64bit

    I agree with running 'fixparts', that will correctly remove left over GPT header data. My understanding the program will automaticly remove the GPT left over GPT header, just run the program and...
  5. [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu 64bit installer doesnt detect windows 8.1 64bit

    "parted -l" does not indicate any partitions. Can you still boot into Windows ? I suspect not. But if you can, go to disk management and post a screen shot.
  6. [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu 64bit installer doesnt detect windows 8.1 64bit

    Open a terminal in the live linux and post the output of

    sudo parted -l -l is a small L . It will tell us if it is MBR or GPT partitioning and if it was GPT and now incorrectly change to MBR.

  8. Re: Ubuntu 14.04 Grub Error After Install Win 8.1
