Ubuntu 12.10 64-bit doesn't recognize my active windows 7 partitions. When choosing the installation option as something else during USB boot it shows my hard disk, but not all the partions I have. I tried GParted inside Ubuntu and it shows my hard disk as unallocated.

ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo fdisk -l
