Bug Description

Image is raring rc - i386 desktop
The test system I'm on is a dell inspiron with a windows partition, and a previous install of raring rc - amd64.

On the screen that allows me to select the install type, for any option I select, the button at the bottom to continue with the install is grayed out.

See attached screenshot

Very interesting combination. I am not sure if cross-grading from one arch to another was ever reliable enough.

On the second look, the machine in question already has maximum number of primary partitions used and possibly simply the calculation to "activate install button" maybe regressed in the corner case of all primary partitions used.

Since this was mentioned in the release notes for Raring, and there doesn't seem to have been much activity, marking this explicitly against saucy so it doesn't get overlooked.
