I've been trying to install ubuntu for a few days now, stubborn as I am.
I've been looking everywhere for an answer.
First I installed ubuntu with a normal /boot partition with a size of 500MB, no errors, but it skips the SSD ubuntu is installed to, and right on to the raptor-drive windows 7 is installed to.
For now I don't care about dualboot, I just want to get grub installed and I want it to react.
After reading around different forums, I found that I might need an EFI partition. Now trying an EFI boot partition instead of the boot partition, results in:
"The attempt to mount a file system with type vfat in SCSI2 (0,0,0), partition #1 (sda) at /boot/efi failed
You may resume partitioning from the partitioning menu."
I have yet to come across some list of how to set up the partitions. I've foud rather specific setups, but nothing on how to set up EFI-boot
For some reason, I can't find my SSD or my Raptor in the HDD list when choosing "Install along side Windows 7".
