    PcLinuxOs KDE 64 bit - bootloader on the same partition

    I downloaded and mastered PCLinuxOs 2017 - 64 bit kde.
    I have this situation on my pc:
    sda - data disk - ntfs
    sdb - data disck - ntfs
    sda in which there are:
    - sda1 - swap
    - sda2 - extended partition containing inside:
    - sda5 - Ubuntu 16.04 - ext 4
    - sda6 - Data partition in ntfs
    - sda7 - ext 4 partition where I desire install PcLinuxOs
    - sda3 - Win 10 partition - ntfs

    Currently I have Ubuntu 16.04 installed in sda5 and Win 10 installed on sda3.
    The boot is managed by the Ubuntu grub, installed in sda.
    I launched the installation of pclos following the directions on video, allocating it on sda7, but it does not give me the opportunity to decide where to install the bootloader (which I want to put in sda7, and then manage everything with the Ubuntu grub).
    In fact, proceeding with the installation, a window appears where I can choose the position of the bootloader but, strangely enough, it leaves me only three choices:
    sda where Ubuntu grub2 is installed.
    sdb - data disk
    sdc - additional data disc.
    It does not let me choose sda7 which is the partition where I installed pclos.
    I do not understand why I can not install the bootloader in the same partition (sda7) where I want to put PcLinuxOs.
    I have therefore aborted the installation and here I am to ask you a little help.
    Thanks in advance

    ps. sorry for my poor english
