sda4 aka Linux is the partition I want to install it on.. Made it with gparted on Ubuntu without errors..

I've looked at some other threads with similar problems, but they dont get the HDD to show on fdisk.. Hopefully you can help me out :) Thanks in advance!!!

BIOS says that the SDA HDD is RAID READY..

so I changed everything to AHCI, nothing changed :(

You say that you wanna install Linux Mint in sda4 but the snapshoot of GParted shows sdb HD, I am not understanding...
