Ubuntu: Ubuntu wants to install on USB rather than hard drive


I am trying to dual boot on my laptop. I've set up a partition and created a bootable USB in which I've followed guides to create, but when I try to install Ubuntu by running the installer, but the window says this drive isn't large enough (7.8 GB), referencing my USB stick that is plugged into the laptop.

How do I install directly to the hard drive?

Any help is appreciated! Thanks :)


Ubuntu wasn't recognizing my hard drive. To fix this, I entered the BIOS and switched the SATA mode from RAID into AHCI. After that, my installation worked perfectly.


During the install process, choose the option: Something Else when asked which options to use for installing Ubuntu and choose the drive you wish to install it on.
