I am trying to install ubuntu 15.10 however at the installer I get the following error:


Starting sector number, xxxxxxx exceeds the msdos-parition-table-imposed maximum of xxxxx

and i get no-where.

furthermore, if i open gparted i get the following message:


Can't have a parition outside the disk.
cancel / ignore.

Now, on this desktop machine I have setup all my HDs in Raid0 mode via the Bios. four 1 TB drives. They show up in windows as one drive of 3726.04GB
Windows on this machine is windows 8.1.

Is there a way to fix this?
