The reason i'm interested in this information is because i know that ubuntu cannot be installed on a dynamic disk. So how can i tell if a hard drive i am buying is classified as basic or dynamic before i've purchased and installed it into my build?

If it helps, i plan on installing windows 8 on this hard drive first and then installing kubuntu second.

Ah, okay thanks for that clarification... where does this formatting option occur in the windows installation process? Just so i can be mindful of it and make sure that basic is what i use moving forward
