Hello. I have problem with installing ubuntu 14.04 along with windows 7. Look at picture.
On installing xubuntu 14.04 I have different problem. An installer does not see my disks correctly.
sdd its hitachi 320GB: 1-41GB windows C: ntfs, 2-43GB ext2, 3-4GB ext2. Partitions 2 and 3 prepared for linux.

Did you setup Windows with Extended or Logical partitions?
The Parted Library of the installer should only be showing primary partitions.
Industry standard has always only allowed a maximum of four primary partitions per drive.
That should be why all seven of your desktop locations don't show up in your installer.

Oh! Thank you for answer. But is it possible to install linux (or ubuntu) in my situation? along with windows without reinstalling it.
I think I get it. AOMEI Partition Assistant utility allows to choose between primary and logic partition type.
I will try xubuntu with primary option.

P.S. About standards. They limit the possibilities.

Well. I did install xubuntu. Made an upgrade,
and learned that using fglrx leads to a black screen of death.
