Ubuntu 12.04 issues on my desktop - Page 2

When using install alongside Windows it'll use the drive or partition with the largest amount of contiguous free space, so it's only natural that it's choosing your storage drive.

Do as rookie said, use the something else option, pick the right drive ( there's a small drop down menu ), pick the partition manually, set the filesystem to Ext4, and the mount point to "root ( / )" and the check mark to format the partition and you should be golden.

An example of what you should see ( old image, but still fairly accurate );



So you can see the drop down menu for the drive selection at the top right, just make sure that's the drive you want.

Damn....do you remember which drive is the first boot drive in your BIOS and which drive the bootloader is installed on? Also, is this a UEFI board you got?

Most motherboards have both BIOS/UEFI settings. Few are UEFI only, so that really doesn't matter much so long as you don't boot into UEFI mode when booting from the cd or usb. My only guess is that for some reason GRUB wasn't installed, I've notice similar boot issues on a few computers before.

It may be worth it to try again and to make sure that GRUB is installed to /dev/sda ( with no numbers ) if asked.
