I was unable to find a thread dealing with this issue, but I am new so please forgive me if this has been solved already.
I wanted to partition the hard drive on my laptop to dual boot Windows 8. Right now I'm running Ubuntu 13.10. The problem is that when I open gparted, I can't select "new" from the rick click drop-down in order to create a new partition. Does anyone know what the issue is here? Is there another way or an easier way to go about doing this?
