I have Windows 8 and need to dual boot Ubuntu. I made a new partition from Windows Manager.
My machine is
Dell Inspiron 15R-5537 Laptop
Windows 8, and I tried to install the latest version 16.04 Ubuntu .
My machine doesn't allow to make partitions more than 4. then when I shrink the new space for Ubuntu I have got unallocated space rather than free space!!!
but when I boot Ubuntu and choose
- Installation Type:Something else here
- I can't select the unallocated space! which is the shrink-ed new partition.
- this option of Add(+) is disabled when I select unallocated space. such like following:
Then I can't install Ubuntu because I can't select and add partitions for Ubuntu. My installation is stopped at this point
I'm trying to use How do I dual boot Ubuntu with Windows 8 in a different partition?
