I am trying to install Windows on Ubuntu using a bootable Windows USB stick. Basically I want to multi boot with Ubuntu and Windows 8. However, on the "Where do you want to install Windows?" installation windows, it doesn't show any available drives.

No visible drives in the windows 8 installation - Here's the Image

How do I proceed?

Assuming the drive shows in BIOS, there is a decent possibility Windows 8 does not recognize the SATA controller. Download the driver from the manufactures website and copy the driver onto the USB stick. Then load the driver with the Load Driver link on the dialog of your screenshot.
