    Welcome. Your problem might be to do with UEFI disk. Do you have Windows installed already and if so which version?

    If you have the hardware specs, make sure you are installing the 64bit version of Ubuntu.

    You might like to read the second post on this thread:

    Neither condition applies to installing Ubuntu to the hard drive, which is when and where you are getting the error.

    If you open Gparted when booting from the LiveCD, how many partitions does it say you have on the disk you are wanting to install Ubuntu to? Attach a screenshot if you like ...

    You say booting from the LiveCD and trying Ubuntu works fine and you can see them. I'm saying when you are at the LiveCD desktop from 'Try Ubuntu' launch Gparted (System>Administration>Gparted or Partition Editor from memory, I use Xubuntu) and see what it reports for the drive you want to install to. Or you can take a screenshot and attach it (Apps>Accessories>Screenshot). Avoid posting it in the body of the post. Also, open a terminal (Applications>Accessories>Terminal) and paste this in:
    Code:
    sudo blkid
    Post the result back here, thanks.

    from the last picture theres not where to continue and of course it detects them from the bios setting and from the boot menu and from the disk utility in ubuntu

    im frustrated !!!!!!
