I have a new HP Pavilion HPE h9-1130 Phoenix Desktop with Windows 7 64-bit pre-installed. I would like to dual boot with the latest stable release of Ubuntu, version 12.04.1 LTS. I followed the steps in this tutorial but am stuck.
The initial HDD composition was as follows:
SYSTEM 100MB, OS (C:) 1.81TB, and HP RECOVERY (D:) 17.1GB. I ran GParted through my Ubuntu CD and created an extended partition comprised of the
root (150GB ext4), linux-swap (8GB swap), and home (92GB ext4). GParted recognized all pre-existing partitions as well as the newly created ones. However, when I run the Ubuntu Installer there are no partitions listed to select for installation and it does not automatically detect that Windows 7 is installed as I presume it should.
When I rebooted the machine Windows automatically ran chkdsk and everything appeared to be okay; Windows works fine. I tried running
sudo fixparts /dev/sda in Ubuntu but everything looked fine as well. Any suggestions?
