After downloading the 8.04 distro I was happy to see it had the in windows install option! I picked the 30gig option and let it install.

After rebooting, the bootloader worked perfectly, I selected ubuntu and it booted up. However, it got to a point where it was partitioning and it had an error that said "could not define root".
I could not move on from this error.

anyone know what this is or how to fix it?
