Help with dual booting Windows 8.1 Professional and Ubuntu 13.10

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I recently installed a clean version of Windows 8.1 Professional on my Lenovo Y500 (with Samsung 256GB 840 Pro SSD).

I have Windows all set up and running normally.

I am trying to dual boot Windows 8.1 and Ubuntu 13.10, but the installation procedure don't allow me to either "Install alongside..." or shows my SSD partitions correctly when I chose the "Something Else" option.

I have created a 25GB partition of free space in the Windows disk manager, but on the installation screen on Ubuntu, it shows the whole drive as a free space.

I have tried installing with a burned .ISO disk and a bootable USB, the results are the same for both.

I've ran into this problem before when trying to dual boot Ubuntu and Windows 7 Professional a month ago. But I gave up and never resolved the issue.

I don't know if you still need help with it. But even if you don't see any partitions from that you made from windows, why don't you try creating a partition from ubunu?

Just tried that. Now there are no boot options after restarting. So can't boot into Windows, just Ubuntu
