Setup Installation :: DUAL BOOT With Ubuntu 12.10 - Windows 8 Not Booting

Sep 13, 2013

I have a big problem since 9/9 and I just can`t fix it.

I have a dual boot system and use Windows 8 as my main OS and on the other ssd I have ubuntu 12.10 installed.

My issue started because I completely forgot that I had ubuntu installed on the other ssd (didn`t use it anyway) and tried to raid the ssd...so now I can`t boot anything and I do need to restore my Windows 8.

I have a usb recovery disk which allows me to use cmd but I don`t know how to use to recover my Windows 8 so that`s why I am here.

I ran diskpart on cmd it it shows both disks and both are ONLINE.

Ran chkdsk /f but i keep getting an error and chkdsk does not run

I have asus P8Z77-V LX UEFI Mobo
Intel rapid Smart technology (RST), Intel Smart Connect Technoly is disabled.
CSM is ENABLED ( it was AUTO) and boot device control to UEFI and LEGACY OpROM.

Secure Boot is disabled and I changed the OS type to OTHER OS and also tried WINDOWS UEFI MODE. The setup mode is EZ MODE.

Setup Installation :: Using Dual OS Of Windows 8 And Ubuntu

Mar 23, 2014

I've had this Windows 8 computer for a while and I've decided that I want to dual-OS Ubuntu 13.10, but how to partition disks or backup system images or anything like that. I'm not even sure how to check what kind of ASUS my laptop is, but I'm fairly certain it is compatible with Ubuntu. If I can, I'd like to avoid using external hard-drives and CD's because I don't have easy access to either.

Maintenance :: Ubuntu Windows 8 Dual Boot Performance?

Jun 27, 2013

I decided to dual boot ubuntu 13.04 with Windows 8. I had a dual boot setup before with Windows 7 and didn't have any problems.

Since this latest dual boot Ubuntu has been running fine however Windows 8 has become really sluggish. It now takes a few minutes to boot when before it was able to boot within sceconds. Once opening a program it crashes and freezes up the entire system, basically making windows unuasable.

There were no problems with windows 8 prior to the dual boot so I am not 100% sure why this is happening.

I backed my system up before install ubuntu so I can easily get everything back if I have to formate everything.

Setup Installation :: Dual Boot Windows 8 And Ubuntu On Laptop

Aug 25, 2013

I have been researching installing Ubuntu alongside Win 8.on my daughters laptop. I already boot Ubuntu & Win 7 on my desktop pc, but I have read some horror stories about installing Ubuntu with Win 8., mostly in regard to the uefi boot system in Win 8., as well as, its a laptop as opposed to desktop.

I have been told that i must enter the bios first and disable secure boot. Most of the tutorials I have read are very complex. Then i read a tutorial from this website, dated 2011 that appeared to be simple, and similar to my own Ubuntu/Win 7 installation, however it was dated 2011.

The only difference with my intended installation is that I will use a dvd as my Pc does not have a USB Boot option.

Setup Installation :: Windows 8 Dual Boot Ubuntu 12.10 On 2 SSD Drives?

Jan 24, 2013

I currently have a machine installed with Windows 8 pro 64 bit installed on one Samsung 840 pro SSD. Works great. I recently added a second Crucial m4 SSD and would like to install Linux on it... I am having major issues doing so mainly because of UEFI... and when installing Linux it does not see Windows 8 installed on any drive therefore making it rather difficult to install both OSes.

Setup Installation :: Dual-booting Windows 8 And XP?

Dec 23, 2012

I wanted to ask a couple of things about installing Windows XP Home SP2 Upgrade (not full) on a partition (I'll get a cheap old Windows copy for the upgrade to work), with a pre-installed Windows 8 in the other partition.

1) How to do it, found how to install XP on Windows 7. Is it the same procedure?

2) I have heard that installing an XP Upgrade will wipe/reformat an entire HD, both partitions as if they were not partitioned/united. Is that true?

Dual Booting In WIN 8

Mar 22, 2013

Just installed Win 8 on a new hard drive. "Almost" everything works fine. However my scanner, colorimeter and a couple programs are not compatible. I do not need to use the incompatible hardware/software very often. But when I do, I would like to boot the computer into XP and use them. I've done some research on this topic. Partitioning the Win 8 primary drive does not appear to be an issue. But, can I dual boot 2 operating systems if Win 8 is now the primary and only OS on the HD?

Setup Installation :: Dual Booting Win 8.1 X64 And Win XP?

Aug 6, 2014

attempting to setup a dual boot with Win 8.1 and Win XP.

Just a quick break down of my current setup:

a) Win 8.1 x64 is currently installed on my SSD on C: drive partition b) On a different SATA hdd I have an old Win 7 x64 installation that I'm not using any more on one partition

I simply want to replace my old Win 7 x64 installation with Win XP. Why do I want to install Win XP you may ask ? The answer is simple, I want to play some older games that aren't fully compatible with Win 8.1 x64 and neither run good in a virtual machine environment on Win 8.1.

The only thing that is stopping me from attempting this is, has to do with the Win 8.1 bootloader. I simply don't want to lose my bootloader, and I'm afraid that when I install Win XP it might overwrite my Win 8.1 bootloader which will most likely leave me without gaining access to Win 8.1. At the moment the Win 8.1 bootloader lists along with Win 8.1 my old Win 7 x64 installation.

Given my setup of hdd's up top, what would be the easiest way for me to load Win XP on my old Win 7 partition that will still allow me to have the Win 8.1 bootloader with a Win XP boot option on the bootloader menu ?

Should I disconnect my SSD and then proceed to install Win XP on the Win 7 partition and then afterward reconnect my SSD and then using EasyBCD add an entry for Win XP to the bootloader? Or will I run into an issue along the way?

Maintenance :: Unused Partitions Take Lot Of Space And Dual Booting

May 21, 2013

So recently i bought a refurbished/used Samsung ultrabook (NP540U3C-A01UB )

One of the features is that is has : (500GB with 24GB ExpressCache - Technology)
Which I don really understand.

I've also noticed that the system has a lot of partitions that are taking space and are largely unused. I've had the computer for about a month and i use it everyday almost and so far a lot of the partitions havent been used.

I don't see a reason why to have those.

So can i Erase them??

Please notice 2 disks. I know the larger one is used for C: and the other for the ExpressCache???

Also notice that disk1 is empty. Pretty much all of them are, with the exception of 2 (C: and the partition right of it)

What is it used for?? How can i find out?? Whoever installed this system made a mess.

Here is a second part of my question:

For work reasons I have to have a Ubuntu machine and I thought I could just dualboot and use the partitions that are unused. Which is why i care about the unused space.

I have used virtualbox in the past but it was really slow. I need a responsive system and virtualization is no longer an option.

So my question would be how can i accomplish the dualbooting?? Specially taken that i have UEFI/random partitions in my system.

I know there are a lot of tutorials out there but none come close to my drive mapping/situation.

Just don't wanna destroy my system while trying to get the dualboot working.

Files Get Saved In The Wrong Library When Dual Booting

Jan 9, 2013

So I have both Windows 7 and 8 on my machine and am currently primarily using 8. I save all of my work and files to my 8 partition C: whenever I choose the location, but for applications/programs that automatically save to a library and where I can't choose the location, those programs always save it to my Windows 7 partition E:.

For example, using Windows key + PrtSc takes a screenshot of your screen and saves it to your pictures library. However, the picture gets saved to E:Users[username]Pictures instead of C:Users[username]Pictures. I guess it thinks my main library is still on the 7 partition instead of the 8 partition. The same things happens with games that I play where the save files are automatically saved in the My Games folder in My Documents. The save files are saved in the E: partition documents library instead of C: partition documents library.

Basically, I don't know where I'd go or what setting I'd change to fix this behavior. My default OS is set to Windows 8 in msconfig and all of my games are installed on my C drive, so I don't know why they would save to my E drive. Since the screenshot command uses the same behavior, I'm guessing there's a setting somewhere that's making my Windows 7 library the default.

Setup Installation :: Dual Booting On Separate Hard Drives

Nov 17, 2013

Currently I have a machine with Windows 8 pre-installed already. But now I don't like Windows 8 as much because certain programs I want to use requires Windows 7. Though I would still like to keep Windows 8 because it's licensed. I have an extra hard drive lying around with Windows 7 loaded in it already. Now I would like to dual boot between these two drives. Do I have to turn off Secure Boot and change the boot orders around to boot the Windows 7 hard drive?

Setup Installation :: Windows 8 Dual Boot - Windows 7 Restarts Instead Of Direct Booting

Feb 8, 2013

When Windows 8 menu appears on start and I choose W7 - instead of loading W7directly , the computer is new-starting again and only than starts w7. That's a funny "behaviour"....

Also, after starting the computer, the menu is not directly shown up, first is this turning wi8 circle (like in the setup) and only about 30 sec. later comes the menu. I am using windows 8 enterprise, test version.

Setup Installation :: Dual Booting Windows 7 With Pre-installed Windows 8 Laptop?

Dec 29, 2013

My girlfriend has recently got a new laptop and unfortunately she doesn't like it, despite me loving Windows 8.1.

She would like to try Windows 8 but is going back to Uni soon so would like Windows 7 as a back-up dual booted.

I've shrunk the partition and created a simple partition for Windows 7 but really unsure about Installing Windows 7 on a Windows 8 Laptop, it's an ASUS X550CA-XX417H. I've checked power shell with SecureBootUEFI and result is True.

What would be the best way to dual boot?

Windows 8 Fails To Boot After Booting Into Windows 7 - Dual Boot

Sep 15, 2014

I have a Dell Inspiron 17, 5000 Series (1.7 GHz Intel Pentium 3558U, 4 GB Ram, 500 GB HDD). It came preloaded with Windows 8.1. I needed Windows 7 so I partitioned the main drive and installed Windows 7 in 100 GB of partitioned space. After swapping between the Windows 7 and 8 Boot manager. Ended up choosing the Windows 8 manager.

My problem comes in when I boot into Windows 7, then when I shut down and try and boot into Windows 8 it will hang prior to the boot manager (of Windows 8). I have to press and hold the power button to hard shut down. Once I do that and reboot, Windows 8 Boot manager and Windows 8 boot ok.

So Windows 8 will boot fine if I was last in Windows 8. However if I was last booted in Windows 7 then go to Windows 8 (or try and boot into 7 again, but using the 8 boot manager) it will hang at boot. I've used all the command checks with Windows 7 and 8. Found no errors. I can't reinstall Windows 8 as I don't have recovery disks, plus the computer came from Aarons Rent to Own (they had no issues me doing what I wish with it).

When I switch and use the Windows 7 boot manager I can boot back into Windows 7 even if Windows 7 was my last boot. But like when using the Windows 8 boot manager, I am unable to boot into Windows 8 if Windows 7 was booted last. But Can boot to Windows 8 if Windows 8 was booted last.

How To Create Ubuntu VM In Windows 8

Aug 23, 2014

I'm trying to create a virtual machine with Ubuntu in it.

I followed the instructions in this video step by step......and I have VM installed and running.

The problem comes when I try and go to the next step.

When I double click on the Ubuntu Icon in VM to start the Ubuntu install process, it should ask where the Ubuntu ISO file is, instead I get this message...

Here's my directory structure...

Virtual Box is installed in the 001 Virtual Box folder and the Ubuntu.vdi file is where you see it.

I've removed everything and repeated the process multiple times, but I always get the same result.

Hide Ubuntu Partition In Windows 8

Sep 6, 2013

I just recently installed Ubuntu 13.04 in my new msi laptop. My goal is to hide Windows 8 partition in ubuntu and vice versa.

In ubuntu, I disabled auto mount so it is working as desired.

In windows 8 disk manager, I cannot seem to find a way to hide the ubuntu partitions.

My goal is to keep windows and ubuntu partions (in windows drives) to see each other to protect the parition from accidental damage.

Is there a way to this in windows 8 home edition?

Setup Installation :: Installing Ubuntu In Windows 8?

Jan 27, 2013

I have just had limited success installing Ubuntu 12.10 onto an external diskon my new Samsung (series 3) Windows 8 laptop.

The secure boot and fast start up have been disabled.

The situation now is that Windows or Ubuntu will not boot up after pressing the power button, when doing this I get a dark screen with the following message:

error: no such device: 6dada016-95df-4ef5-a343-4a77e8afd396
grub rescue >_

I can now only boot up either program by hitting the F10 key directly afterpressing the power button, I then have to select one of the options in the boot options before themachine will boot (both systems boot up as normal when following this option).

if the external drive is not plugged into the USB port I want mylaptop to boot directly into Windows 8. Can this be achieved?. I would like to start Ubuntu through the settings, change PC settings option.
