I have trouble installing Ubuntu 12.04 LTS ony my laptop ( Asus k55vm - http://www.asus.com/Notebooks_Ultrab...specifications ). I already have windows 8 and i want to install Ubuntu alongside it.(hopefully without deleting any files).I've read a lot of topics on the subject, but couldn't make it work.
Things i've tried:
- I turned off the Fast Startup on windows;
- I have 3 disks, so i shrink (E: and now i have 97,66GB Unallocated - thats the place i made for linux.(disk manager screen: http://i.imgur.com/nJXx8UR.jpg )
- Checked the Secure Boot(http://i.imgur.com/skulZg4.jpg);
- When i try to install Ubuntu, it doesn't recognize that i have an operation system(http://i.imgur.com/323QVPf.jpg) (i found a lot of topics about that, so i guess it is normal not to detect windows 8), so i continue clicking "Something Else", but then it doesn't recognize the disks as they are in windows, it simply show me one partition(http://i.imgur.com/qcDNyT9.jpg).( i was hoping to show me the unallocated space, so i could install it there)
btw i noticed a little error shows just for a second right before it loads the ubuntu cd.(http://i.imgur.com/MCTzJwh.jpg) (not sure if it is important)
sudo parted -l(i wasnt sure yes/no)
sudo fdisk -l
