I recently tried to dual boot my Laptop with Windows 8 and Ubuntu. I disabled the Fast Startup option in Windows 8 and Secure Boot was also Turned Off as my Model doesn't support UEFI. Now I inserted the USB Stick with Ubuntu Installer and Selected 'Try Ubuntu Without Installing'.
My Problem is that the Ubuntu running from USB Stick does not recognize any one my existing partitions which I created using Windows 8. Further while installing Ubuntu 12.04, the Installer shows the entire space as Unknown type.
Any help Regarding this problem would be much Appreciated.
