I got my brand new Dell Inspiron 14z yesterday, but failed to install Ubuntu.
I can boot from a USB stick, and it works well. When trying to install, I confirm that the laptop is connected to the Internet etc (as in the 2nd picture in the installation guide: How do I install Ubuntu?).

The problem is that I can only select
sdb in the drop drop down box, and I can do do nothing with
sdb (like adding partitions etc).
The main disk (
sda) is partitioned using GParted the following way:
As far as I understand from other posts on Ask Ubuntu, this should work.
What can I do to install Ubuntu alongside with Windows 7?
