    Re: Install Ubuntu 12.04

    I'm not sure from your screendump. Are there already four primary partitions when you start installing Ubuntu? In that case yes.

    There might also be a problem due to problems to detect your hardware. In that case, you might need to enter some boot option, for example nomodeset. See this link
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions

    Did you try to run Ubuntu live 'test Ubuntu' from the CD drive before installing it? If you did not, please do it now, because it will give us valuable information without tampering with your hard drive.

    If you get it running live, please run the following command and post the output text in a reply.
    Code:
    sudo fdisk -lu
    Put the output text between CODE tags: Mark it and click on the # icon at the top of the editing window.

    Re: Install Ubuntu 12.04

    nomodeset:

    This option is running the graphics in a basic mode during the boot process. There are other boot options for other typical problems with some hardware (when automatic recognition fails). But you run Ubuntu live and it looks good, so I doubt that is the problem.

    list partitions:

    When booted into a live session, please run the following command and post the output text in a reply.
    Code:
    sudo fdisk -lu
    if 4 primary partitions for Windows:

    Unfortunately, that makes it impossible for Ubuntu to add its partitions (a root partition and a swap partition).

    But you can do something, if you are prepared to edit your partition table. You must delete one partition and shrink one partition, so that you can create an extended partition, and in that extended partition you (or the Ubuntu installer) can make the partitions necessary.

    Editing partitions is risky, so if you decide to do it, you should backup your whole hard drive for example with Clonezilla, or at least backup your private files (documents, pictures, ...) and make a recovery disk for Windows.

    Re: Install Ubuntu 12.04

    OK. SO when I back home I format my hard drive and then I create one partition for windows (primary) and few logical for Ubuntu like You said. I have my hard drive in image so I can restore all partition in few minutes with clonzilla I replay later when I check this with logical partition. Thanks again.

    Re: Install Ubuntu 12.04

    I guess from your signature, that you are an IT pro, so editing the partition table should not be too difficult. And you probably know already, if there is one particular partition that you can simply wipe (and maybe move its content somewhere else before wiping it).

    I guess from the picture of a monitor screen, that you have a desktop or tower computer. Another possibility is to get a second internal drive and install Ubuntu and grub to that second drive, while Windows can remain with its four partitions on the first drive.

    Edit: I use gparted run from a live session booted from the Ubuntu CD/USB drive to edit partitions.

    Re: Install Ubuntu 12.04

    Yesterday I did a few tests. First I create a main partition (primary) with few logical and run install Ubuntu. Secondly I run install Ubuntu a check that install create partition automatic and he took all disk.

    Wahtever I set, check the command "Sudo fdisk -lu" return smimilary results.

    Code:
    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo fdisk -lu

    This doesn't look like a partition table
    Probably you selected the wrong device.
    
       Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System

    /dev/sdb4        50200576   974536369   462167897    0  Empty
    
    Partition table entries are not in disk order
    I don't understand this

    Code:
    This doesn't look like a partition table
    Probably you selected the wrong device.
    I run install with atribut
    Code:
    no modeset
    but without success.

    --edit

    Code:
    Disk /dev/sdb: 4011 MB
    this is a probably a usb with linux install so this error not applicable my problem with install I guess.

    - The option suggested by sudodus is "nomodeset", not "no modeset".
    - Anywyay: as you can boot your USB session without kernel option, I think you don't need it neither on the installed system.
    - you don't have 2 primary partitions on sda, but 2 (1 primary + 1 extended), so you can still add 2 primary.

    Please try to install 11.10 and tell us if you have the same problem or not.

    +1 to Yannbuntu's suggestions

    Furthermore, since you have no Windows or other file system to preserve it should be easy to install

    - Ubuntu with Unity or Gnome 3
    or some other flavour,
    - Kubuntu with KDE fancy but as demanding as 'vanilla' Ubuntu
    - Lubuntu with LXDE ultra-light desktop environment
    - Xubuntu with XFCE light desktop environment.

    Maybe you will be happy with Ubuntu 11.10. Otherwise we need to find out why it didn't work for you, and it would help if you post your specifications, at least CPU, RAM and graphics card.
