Bug Description

ISOtesting Lubuntu:
Install alongside wants to install into the pendrive instead of into the internal IDE drive, so it does not work. This worked with yesterday's version (vivid vervet alpha). The only other thing different is that yesterday the previous system was based on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, now it is Lubuntu vivid (installed a few minutes ago). Both of these were installed to the whole internal drive.

How much free (unallocated) space was available on the flash drive? If there's adequate free space on any device the button in the lower right hand corner will change from Continue to Install now if the installer plans to just proceed using that free space.
