I've been trying all day to find a way to duel boot Windows 8 and Ubuntu. None of the google links I read seem to work on my computer.
My computer has two internal hard drives, Widows 8 is installed on the first drive c:. The second hard drive has two partitions, one for use with Windows while the other partition is where I want to install Ubuntu. The links I have read say it's quite simple, just tell Ubuntu to use the partition I want. But neither Ubuntu version 12 or version 13 recognize the two partitions on the second hard drive, instead it wants to take over the entire hard drive. I have a lot of files on the second hard drive that I can not let Ubuntu delete.
I can't use the Utuntu Windows Installer because it is not compatible with Windows 8. Any suggestions on how to make Ubuntu recognize the two logical volumes on the second hard drive?
