    All those partitions are standard & normal.
    Many use Windows to shrink largest NTFS partition and install Ubuntu.

    But have you updated UEFI from Dell to latest version.
    As CatKiller suggested, these are required.
    Are drives set to AHCI, not RAID, nor Intel RST in UEFI settings.
    Windows fast start up is off.

    No EFI boot on Dell Inspiron One 2330 UEFI/BIOS update solved issues:

    This is really all you need to know for a dual-boot system (and, of course, boot the installer in UEFI mode). You can use the unallocated portion to install Ubuntu, it's more than enough space.
    If you want to have only Ubuntu it's even easier. No one understand why are you making it so difficult. Just boot the installer in UEFI mode and later select the option "erase and install...". That's all, really. Why are you worried about Windows partitions in this case? It makes sense for dual-booting; it makes no sense at all for installing Ubuntu only.
