Installation does not detect Linux partition
 
I want to make a fresh installation of Linux 14.1 on a partition that currently had 14.0 installed.

The installer tells me that it cannot detect any Linux Partition. I certainly do have Linux partitions and they were detected when I installed 14.0

( sda is an SSD. I also have a hard drive sdb which has the EFI parition and original windows installation.

This is the output of cgdisk

Please help

Ok I have solved this. For some reason the partition was type 8301 instead of 8300
