I have seen a lot (really tons of them) questions regarding "I can't see [Windows] partitions while installing Ubuntu".

A common property between all of them is that almost none of them has close votes for bug. Why??? It should be closed as such because .. it is a bug!

Also some of them provide more information that others, but that is not relevant (IMO).

So the thing is, lets close them, and if someone has/found a workaround lets link them as dupe!

Here are some of them, but is easy to find more:

  • I remember that I made a canonical answer about the most possible reasons and gave the question a proper title... let me look for it.

  • @Braiam that would be great. If you found it, create an answer.

    Is it a bug though? Is this not a remnant of an improper Windows shutdown? This should be duped over and over and over again.
