Is it possible to install Ubuntu on a laptop running Windows XP on an encrypted disk? My company encrypts all laptops before distributing them. When I try to install Ubuntu the installer reports that there is no OS on the system, since it cannot see the data on the HD. I cannot of course choose the whole disk for installation nor partition it since it will possibly screw up my XP installation. Is there any way around this?
I thought about using Wubi but I was afraid to screw up my bootloader since I am really new to the Linux world. I'll back up all my stuff first and try it.
