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.

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.

Attempted To Run Ubuntu Alongside Windows 8 - Cannot Access C Drive?

Jul 16, 2013

I've recently unsuccessfully attempted to run ubuntu alongside windows 8. Ubuntu didn't seem to be working, so I decided to just go back to windows 8. However, when I did so my computer decided to get stuck on the loading screen for windows. I left that there for about 2 hours, then decided to go through and see if I could change anything in bios in order to fix it. Nothing worked. I pressed f8 when I was booting up, and got to the recovery option.

When I tried to recover, it told me that my hard drive was locked, and I should unlock it before attempting to recover any files. So while trying to install ubuntu I somehow managed to lock my hard drive. I attempt to access my c: drive through command prompt, and it tells me that the C: drive does exist, but does not contain any files. Is there anyway to grant myself access to the hard drive, or am I going to have to wipe it?

Setup Installation :: Windows 8 Boot After Installing Ubuntu?

Feb 8, 2013

Since I installed Ubuntu onto my computer, I couldn't boot the Windows 8. I tried installation DVD to repair, but it didn't work. I tried these solutions; solution1, solution2, none of them worked either. I tried refreshing, it stopped at 37%.

When I use diskpart to list partitions from command prompt via the installation DVD, I chose the right partition, but I couldn't activate it.

Setup Installation :: Installing Windows 8 With Ubuntu 12.10 Already In Place

Jan 28, 2013

I'm wanting to upgrade my laptop to Windows 8. I currently have Ubuntu 12.10 installed alongside Windows 7. I've had a lot of trouble getting ubuntu installed and working (AMD graphics ) so I'd like to just leave that as is.

Is it possible to just install windows 8 over W7 in the same partition? How do I go about doing that? Is it as straight forward as just putting the disk in or is the whole secure boot thing going to cause issues? I want to do a clean install rather than using the upgrade assistant to install Windows 8 over W7.

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.

I have a Dell  XPS 8500 win 8.1. I recently installed Linux Mint 17 on an external HD which booted from GRUB. I now removed Mint 17 ok but I'm left with a reference to 'UBUNTU' in my bootloader. I'm unable to remove this reference. this reference to UBUNTU prevents me from booting from a LINUX USB. I think I need to repair the bootloader but can't and I have tried all sorts of.....FIXBOOT, FIXMBR.  etc.

Network / Sharing :: Connecting Ubuntu To Internet Using Windows 8 As Bridge?

Feb 6, 2014

I have a Dell Inspiron 660s running Windows 8.1, and I just did a full boot of Ubuntu 13.10 onto a Dell Optiplex 330 that was previously running Windows XP. My goal is to connect to the internet by using the 660s as a bridge to the internet by connecting the two computers with an ethernet cable.

The level of difficulty: My internet requires you to log into it on a separate browser log in page similar to those in airports and other public Wi-Fi access points except that it requires a username and password to log in. My theory is that if I first log in to the internet on my Windows machine then I can connect to it by simply opening a connection from the Ubuntu OS to the Windows OS. Am I off track here or am I on the right track?

Setup Installation :: Windows 8 Won't Detect Bootable Ubuntu USB Stick

Apr 24, 2014

So I'm trying to run dual OS on my new windows 8 machine. I made a bootable Ubuntu 14.04 usb stick using Rufus, disabled secure boot and proceeded in attempting to install the system. However, (settings->general->advanced startup->use a device) won't detect my bootable USB. It won't boot from it at startup either, no matter how much I fiddle with the UEFI settings.

Well, I guess that is not entirely true, as I managed to get it to boot and install ubuntu after switching the UEFI boot settings to legacy boot. But windows 8 does not work under that option, so I'm having to go and change the UEFI boot setting every time I wish to use a different OS.

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.

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

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 :: Wiped Windows Partition While Installing Ubuntu?

Apr 18, 2014

I have managed to wipe my Windows partition while installing the latest release of Ubuntu (v14.04). I've had my HDD split in two with both Windows 8 (updated to 8.1 Update) and Ubuntu and dual-booted between them for over a year.

During the Ubunut install it informed me that I had a previous version of Ubuntu and would I like to wipe the partition that it occupied and install cleanly. I chose that. It also offered a chance to use free space. Now, why I accepted that I don't know but the definition of free space seems to include any other partitions on the drive and didn't warn of this either!

The upshot is that I now have a 1TB drive with no Windows on it. I've lost all my email, pics etc etc.

I tried using my rescue DVD that I created from within Windows and at 29% I am asked to insert the second disc. I don't have a second disk. I had to force my laptop to power down in order to do anything. In order to get online I ended up installing Ubuntu again and it definitely shows no Windows partition.

I've already ordered a retail copy of Windows 8.1 and I'm hoping that I can install this with no issues on what is effectively a clean drive. Am I correct in that assumption? Is there anything else I can try that might rescue it?

I have a Dell Inspiron 17r SE that is out of warranty so no support from Dell.
