I've got the Live copy of Mint working by using mint4win in Windows 8, however I cannot install the OS as it will not detect my partitions.
My machine is a Lenovo U410, it seems like this is a common problem for this computer with it's 32gb / 500gb hybrid drive. I believe Intel Rapid Start / Rapid Storage is causing issues. I have tried the usual stuff, disabling iRST, disable UEFI, change from RAID to AHCI, but I still can't find the drive in the installer.
Is there some sort of driver that would fix this issue for me? I still want to Windows 8, and use iRST if I can, along with the raid configuration.
Any help would be appreciated, I am a complete noob to Linux so please ELI5 if possible. Thanks.
