I just bought an Asus computer with Windows 8 on it, and I'd like to install Ubuntu 13.04 alongside it. To begin with, I went in to disk management to shrink the main OS partition to make room for Ubuntu. When I got there, though, I saw an interesting arrangement.
OK, weird. Two recovery partitions, a system partition, and the OS partition. Fine, whatever. I went ahead and shrank the OS partition by as much as I could, 346,229 MB.
I then booted Ubuntu from a live USB and proceeded to install. I chose to set up partitions manually, putting a 1024 MB swap partition and the remaining size
/ partition in the freed up space. I pressed the install button to accept that configuration and install, but I got this error:
What do I need to do here? I thought among all those partitions one of them would already be the right type to hold that code. Also, if I choose the Ubuntu installer's default "install alongside windows", will this be set up correctly automatically?
