Re: Help trouble installing ubuntu
No Ubuntu/Linux will NOT install on NTFS filesystem. (It can read and write data to it later with the help of a ntfs3g driver). To install Ubuntu you have to use EXT4 filesystem.
With Ubuntu USB, using GPARTED you can format it as Ext4. Also, installing Ubuntu on 200GB single partition may not be a good idea. Ubuntu needs atleast two partitions but for you I recommend 3 partitions for Ubuntu.
20-30GB ext4 / for Ubuntu system files
2-4GB Linux SWAP
178-166 ext /home for your DATA, like Documents, Videos, Music etc.
Here is a catch: 'Msdos' partition table can have only 4 Primary Partititons. If we need more then we have to create an EXTENDED partition. Withing Extended partition we can have more than 100 Logical Parititions.
If you have further doubts regarding this then post the output the following command from Ubutunt USB:
or post the screen shot from GPARTED showing all your Partitions Plus a screen shot of your paritions from Windows.
