Bug Description

To reproduce install Lubuntu on a btrfs partition along with swap using manual partitioning then try then resinsert the install media and try to do an normal install alongise like in the manual testcase 1301. Boot the install media and select install in the menu. Notice that it will give the same message as in no operating systmes detected. The terminal and web browser in background of screenshot were launched so I could report this bug. Note the btrfs is important just yesterday I did the same thing with ext4 installed and it worked just fine. I installed on a kvm virtual machine that had lubuntu with btrfs with the smae setting just before.

Description: Ubuntu Vivid Vervet (development branch)
Release: 15.04

I expected ubiquity to offer to install alongside the other ubuntu installation. Instead I got the options to erase the entire disk and install ubuntu or to choose something else. Choosing somethings else still allows me to see the btrfs and swap partitions on the disk image.

If I choose something else at the menu option I get this screen that detects the btrfs and swap partitions.

In the manual partitioning I am also unable to resize the btrfs partition. However if I launch gparted I can resize the btrfs partition and then in manual partioning create an ext4 partion by selecting something else to resize so I can still get the installation to start and got to the restart now prompt.
