Ubuntu installer does not see windows 8.1 or free space.
Here is the situation, I have windows 8.1 build 9471 with a custom install. Created only one partition which is c drive. Shrunk partition by 160 GB. Booted into ubuntu 13.10 daily 9/19 and selected install Ubuntu. When the installer came up it did not see windows 8.1 or free space. Just to make sure, I rebooted into live system and sure enough windows was there. So why can't the initial boot into install option not see windows or free space. Also tried to install from live, but nothing happens, click on install Ubuntu and the launcher icon just fades in and out, no installer window pops up.
