I would try the manual partitioning when ask about where you want to install
Ubuntu, then you should be able to put it on the partition that you want
(The manual partitioning had been able to help me in cases like yours as it
detected the empty partition). As to move an already installed Ubuntu on
another partition I am sorry I don't know.
Hope that help a little
