Partition for Ubuntu

I created a 50GB partition for Linux Ubuntu and other files and was advised not to designate the partition as dynamic. My question now is, since the partition does not have a letter designation how do i download and install Ubuntu to that partition?

I've been at this for two days now. PLEASE HELP!

Hello mate.



Before we make any specific recommendations will you please post a snip/screen-shot of the entire disk management drive map with a full description as to which drive/partition is which, so we can see what you have going on as there may be a fairly simple way to resolve the situation.

In the Windows start menu right click computer and click manage, in the left pane of the "Computer Management" window that opens click disk management and post a maximized snip of that.
