That option is no longer shown. Try "Do something else".

If you haven't manually partitioned before, be sure to ask questions up front rather than later!

Do something else will overwrite my windows boot file right?. I have left unallocated space for Ubuntu. I want to know how to get the grub to recognize my windows 2012 as well. I'm new to Ubuntu so a few detailed instructions will definitely help :)
