I have a Lenovo ThinkPad T430. It is currently dual-booting to LinuxMint MATE and Solus OS. I tried to install Ubuntu MATE on the LinuxMint partition, but I get the option of installing it IN ADDITION TO the other two, or erasing the entire disk. There is a “Do something else” option, but it does not allow me to continue. I would think it would take me to GPartEd or equivalent and let me choose a partition to install it on, but it doesn’t.
This is why I have not used Ubuntu in the past. The installer has well thought out options but the ones I need go nowhere OR it wipes my whole disk. The easiest solution I see at present is to reinstall Solus OS using the entire disk, thus wiping LinuxMint, and then have Ubuntu MATE install alongside Solus. The hard drive is really not large enough for 3 installs.
Does anyone have an easier solution? And why does the installer not let me continue and “Do Something Else”?
