    Sony VAIO T Series SVT13112FXS 13.3" dual boots problem


    Hello all, I am very new to the forum

    I have a problem with dual boots. I created a USB boot drive and I was able to boot up into an install menu and up to the license agreement screen, and following screen.













    but unable to see any partitions that i'd like to installed windows 8. Any help is appreciated.

    thanks again!

    Welcome to EightForums, TORO35.

    Go ahead and select custom install. The next screen screen should give you the choice of drives/partitions.

    thanks for quick replied. I did that and it comes up with the following screen without any partitions. Please see the attached pictureClick image for larger version

    I have no problem with my other two computers and laptop (Toshiba). those computers and laptop are installed from DVD. Was that because I installed this laptop from USB Drive?

    Thanks again!

    Your quite welcome. I gues you were posting that last pic when I was posting. You were a bit faster.

    Not sure what the problem is. Kind of wierd that drives don't show up. Did you create the USB correctly? Please check it compared to this tutorial: Create Bootable USB or DVD with Windows 8 ISO
