View Full Version : [ubuntu] No option to go alonside with windows.

April 10th, 2015, 05:26 AM
Hello! I just have the demo at the current moment, but when I try to install Ubuntu I only get two options not three. The options are to erase everything (Dont want to do) or Something else (too advanced for me). I want to go alongside with windows (I am using Windows 7 64 bit). I am trying to install Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS. Did I download the wrong version or??? Can someone help me?

If your machine came preinstalled witn Win7, it's likely that (1) the drive is completely full (leaving no room for Ubuntu) and (2), there are already the maximum of 4 partitions allocated on the drive (preventing the creation of any more).

To see what's there, when you're in the Ubuntu desktop, open a terminal, enter "sudo fdisk -lu" (lowercase L, not a one), and post the results back here.
