Actual Outcome: After clicking on the "Forward" button on the "Install FAMILY XX.XX alongside SYSTEM YY", the "Where are you?" screen is displayed.

You seemed to have enough empty disk-space available and thus it simply installed the new ubuntu into available disk-space.

When performing "install along side" test case, make sure you use 1 hard-drive with an operating system install, which uses complete disk space.
