I'm trying to install Ubuntu onto my SSD, which was pre-partitioned with a 20gb for future(now) Ubuntu installation.

However now, neither Gparted nor Ubuntu installer can detect the SSD at all. It is a Crucial M4 256GB SSD.

My mouse also doesn't work in Gparted/Ubuntu. It is a Dare-U Compass. Don't even know how I can navigate to the terminal.

Thanks for any help!
