Installing linux mint

Hi. I recently had my PC crashed. I've tried to reinstall my dual windows10/ Linux mint. Unfortunately I can not install Linux mint on my PC. Even though I have created a partition for Linux on my PC (Window10), the Linux installation box to choose partitions is empty. I've tried all the tricks I know but still no partition show in the box. I am running out of options. Please guide me. Thanks

Answer to the question

Already installed

I believe Mint is seeing that there is already 2 OS's on the box and there is no available drive space.  Run the install again and when it gets to the partition part, you'll need to format the partitions that you want to use first. 

An alternative is to rerun the Grub setup, you can google that, and have it restore the boot menu for you to access the Mint install that is already there.
