[ubuntu] Partion with windows issue

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Right now I am trying to setup 12.10, and I have windows 7 currently installed. I removed my 12.04 OS and partion entirely through Windows hardware manager by deleting that partition and re-adding it to my main. I am now trying to reinstall 12.10 after a while, and when I select install beside Windows in the options, it shows my second hard drive, which I use only for game installs. So it shows sdb, not sda. But when I go to manage my own partitions, I see sda. So I want to put it on SDA, but if I do a "new partition table" I will lose everything... So why is it not reconizing the S (Hardware)
