Awesome, we put it on the C drive
We do not have anything unplugged, could there be another problem with the HD?
The laptop has Home Premium and we had been attempting to run linux along side windows which wasnt working for us. In the process was when I deleted HP's recovery drive and messed around with the partitions so we figured we mine as well upgrade and get back to "stock" settings. I dont know if it makes a difference but we were having the same issue with the install of Ubuntu, the partitions were not showing for the install.
