The issue I'm facing is that the graphical interface provided with Mint 13 Cinnamon isn't detecting my partition table and my other Operating System. However, when I use cfdisk, I do see those partitions. So, I created partitions for Linux using cfdisk. But even then, the installer won't detect those partitions. So I'm wondering is there a manual way to install using terminal?

A Mint 13 installer that uses a text user interface versus a graphics user interface is not going to make any difference. Both installers are going to use the exact same back-end routines to try to read the partition table. What is this "other OS"? Is it Windows? What does cfdisk say about the partition table? Is it a GUID partition table rather than the venerable MBR? – sawdust Jan 27 '13 at 9:58
    
@sawdust It is Windows 8. cfdisk does list those partitions. fdisk lists those as exFat. It is GUID partition table, not MBR. Also I believe, there's some issue of BIOS vs UEFI. As of now, I'm going to try Mint 14 to see if there's some change. – Kazekage Gaara Jan 27 '13 at 11:57
