i really hope this question hasn't been asked, i looked around and couldn't find the same problem. if so, please direct me to the thread that talks about it.
I have a toshiba satellite with windows 8 installed on it. and i want to install ububtu 12.10 as dual boot, so i divided the hard disk in another NTFS partition so i could install ubuntu on the new one.
the live cd works fine, but somehow ubuntu can not mount the hard disk, so i cant see the files from the live session. and when i try to install ubuntu it does not detect any other operating system. but it does detect all the partitions of the hard disk (the two main ones, plus the backup partitions for windows).i want to choose the option to install ubuntu along side other operating system, because i don't want to risk messing something up and losing the files i have on the hard disk.
i would really appreciate the help, thanks in advance
