So I recently got a Lenovo ideapad z585 and I want to dual boot ubuntu 13.04 and windows 8, I know the process of installing it but I need to install the partition in the right spot, but I went to see what partitions are on it and wtf?

This is how to hard drive came partitioned, where the hell do I install this darn thing without messing stuff up?

Just using the disc should be straightforward enough. Most of those partitions are probably from lenovo by default

I'd just shrink that 884.18 GB one (C: drive) and put a Linux partition after it (using Linux tools, not Windows disk management!!)
Ubuntu installer will probably offer to do this automatically for you.

You might have to disable secure boot or something tho.
Idk, none of my PCs have it!!

just use windows exclusively because its the only browser you will ever need. also remove that start button you fool its only slowing you and the progress of operating system's down
I like the start button, it's the only way I can use it in public without people bitchin about how crap windows 8 is, and the real reason why this laptop goes so slow is because the guy at hhgregg LIED TO ME ABOUT THE PROCESSOR! >:(
