I'm running on a windows 8.1 64bit OS. I want to dual boot along with ubuntu 12.04 or 13.10. 

I have bootable flash drive with ubuntu 13.10, when I connect it to my system and reboot it and in the BIOS I selected USB as first boot priority, then it goes directly into ubuntu setup without any keystroke request.

And then there I have a installation problem I cant create a separate partition for my ubuntu OS for dual boot.

can anyone help me in this installation

any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance

Use 12.04 or 14.04 as they are LTS ( Long Term Support)

Yes You pc is treating the USB as the only bootable drive, Same as when you boot from CD or DVD.

 May I suggest that you install Linux to a USB HDD or you can install it to USB stick. If you are not sure on how to make a partition be extra carefull.
