I am having a little trouble installing Mint 16 64bit Cinnamon.
The system is a Gigabyte H87M-HD3 board with an i5 4570 processor and 8Gb ram. I have a Western Digital 500Gb drive with a 250Gb partition with Vista Ultimate 64bit installed and 250Gb left unpartitioned.
When I get to the third screen, "Installation Type" I have no partitons showing. The drive is listed under "Device for bootloader Installation".
Gparted shows the Vista partition and free space, but not the installer. If I hit the +,- or change button the installer crashes with the screen linked below.
(Sorry. File to large to be embeded.)
Output from fdisk is as follows :-
Code: Select all
mint@mint ~ $ sudo fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes

Any pointers as to where I am going wrong would be really helpful.
