If your hard drive is new and have not been partitioned you will get this screen ( else you will get picture no. 4 in this blog ) select the first option to create/modify partition and select ok as in image below

Here you can create the partition table. ( 3 GB will be sufficient ) if creating new partition select "write " and hit enter .you can make more partitions also as your hard drive is new.

Now select the partition you made for installation here i have only one partition Linux -harddisk now select ok and hit enter ( as told above this is the picture no. 4 for those whose hard drive has been already formatted and have partition table you will get this screen. )

Now if created new partition format with your desired file system both Linux and windows file system are supported there is another option " Do not format" for already formatted drive suppose if your C drive have windows already install and have enough space and want to install on the same drive with out formatting you can use this option use at your own risk. But better to use separate drive. Now select your desired option and select OK.

Next select yes to install grub if skip you will not be able to boot

Next to select if you want to install system in read-write mode or only read mode better in read-write mode up to your choice select Yes for read-write mode and No for read only mode.
