[ubuntu] Ubuntu installer can't see hard drives? And wireless not working

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – My laptop is an HP Envy 4t-1105dx runnign windows 8. It has a 500 HDD and a 32 GB SSD. When I run the installer from from USB, I get a ubiquity related error. Then the installer fails to see any hard drives and pressing continue would close the installer. Help would be much appreciated. IU've already disabled UEFI. When running Ubuntu from the USB, I can see the hard drives from Disks so Ubuntu can clearly detect the disks just not form the instlaler. 500 GB Hard DRisk Hitachi *long model number* 32 GB Disk LITEONIT LMT-32L3M-HPO 16 GB Thumb Drive Other devices 751MB Lopp Device /cdrom/ (Hardware)
