I have installed windows 8.1 and now I want to install Ubuntu 12.04 along with it and want dual boot OS. I have 250 GB HD and they partitioned in four drives in windows and in which one is 20 GB portion for Linux which is empty.

But when I am installing Ubuntu with boot-able pen-drive it shows me three drives one system reserved(windows-300 MB of windows), one C: drive(of windows) and other 200 GB combined drive. So how can I solve this??

Are you using MBR or GPT? There is a limit of 4 partitions when dealing with MBR partitions. – Ramhound Jun 16 '14 at 14:24
I am using MBR. – Brijesh Patel Jun 17 '14 at 17:05
Linux requires more then a single partition to install anyways. So you have other problems besides the partition you want to use not being listed. – Ramhound Jun 17 '14 at 17:18
