Current Environment Information: Dual Boot with Windows 7x64 and Linux Mint 16
I am currently trying to install Elementary OS instead of Linux Mint.
Windows works fine but Mint boots fine but has some problems (Cinnamon Crashes and unable to browse other drives) so cannot use for regular use. So I decided of trying the newly released Elementary OS.
I started the Install reached the step for "Installation Type" and selected "Something Else" as I already has the partitions where I would be installing it. But then it didn't show
/dev/sda partition structure.
LiveCD runs from sdb1, so I canceled and ran parted, fdisk, fixparts(readonly).

I am not getting what the problem is! As I had previously successfully installed different versions of Ubuntu's, Linux Mint's. If anymore information is required please comment. Any help is appreciated.
