I use opensuse, but that's more of my personal preference than anything.
To an extent, with Linux any distro goes; I like opensuse because it was the first one I started with, and has gui configuration for pretty much everything I've needed so far.

If you can't figure this out then how are you supposed to even install Arch :lol:
Anywho all jokes aside here is a Distro test to help you choose!

also Distrowatch is a a very good place to learn about different distributions
compare major distro's ==> http://distrowatch.com/dwres.php?resource=major

I agree here. Arch has a much steeper learning curve than ubuntu.

Huh, what seems to be the issue? Any error messages? Never had installers be unable to access the HDD.

Is this part of the Ubuntu installer? Also, are you running it with admin privileges?
Nothing else comes to mind, I'm sorry.
