When I go to install Ubuntu 12.10, the partitioning step does not give me the option to install alongside Windows 8. Would I have to manually create a partition to direct Ubuntu to install on? I used Windows 8's built in disk management to shrink my Win8 partition, so do I just install Ubuntu on the free space?
Also, is there any advantage to using Windows' bootloader over GRUB with EasyBCD? I asked a different forum and someone mentioned it.
