Ubuntu 13.10 Installation Offset 512 Bytes Fix

During the installation of Ubuntu 13.10, I was also blocked by the disk partition problem of offset 512 Bytes.

I tried the following method and it worked:
  • Boot installation CD (or usb stick) so you get the page showing HD needs, internet connection etc.
  • Press Ctrl+alt+F1 to get into "terminal mode".
  • Run sudo parted -a optimal /dev/sda (change drive name accordingly). This will startup parted with this optimal setting for this drive.
