Dual Boot Windows 8.1 And Linux - How To Load Into BIOS

Dec 9, 2013

I dual boot Windows 8.1 and linux, and I was wondering how to boot into the windows BIOS. I would like to enable virtualization so that I can run 64 bit virtual machines, but it does not give me the option to boot into the BIOS. No pressing Esc, delete, F11, or F12 boots me into the BIOS. I was not able to boot into the BIOS even before dual booting.

Have a sony viao laptop with Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3632QM.

Setup Installation :: Cannot Dual Boot Windows 8.1 With Any Linux Distro

Feb 14, 2014

I really want to dual boot Windows 8.1 with Kali Linux. ~ 64 bit.

I'm having a lot of doubts about it. A lot of people write that their Windows 8.1 system got, excuse my language, ****ed up. They say it's because of OEM/UEFI & so forth.

I'm unfortunately not so experienced with dual booting so i wouldn't really know what to do. What's the problem with Windows 8.1 & Linux, what do I need to do in order to install it successfully without errors?

Setup Installation :: Windows 8.1 / Linux Zorin 8 On Lenovo Desktop - Dual Boot Not Happening

Mar 20, 2014

I tried to set up a dual boot, Windows 8.1 and Linux Zorin 8 on a new Lenovo desktop. I setup the partition first in Windows and then loaded Zorin per the instructions here: [URL].....

Everything seemed to go OK but in the end I didn't end up with the grub boot loader, so I can only boot into Windows. Now I ended up loosing 20% of my hard drive which is now unallocated space that I can't figure out how to reclaim into my hard drive. I tried deleting the partition but it's still there and there was no option to expand volume.

Setup Installation :: Linux Install Failed - Windows 8 Pro Not Booting

Feb 8, 2013

I have upgraded my windows 7 ultimate to windows 8 pro a month ago and activated accordingly.

3 Days ago I tried to install Linux OS on XP partition ( earlier I had a XP+ Windows 7 dual boot and I upgraded windows 7 to Windows 8 Pro).

Unfortunately installation of linux failed and Windows 8 Pro is not booting now

How can I restore/re install windows 8 pro??

I tried by inserting repair DVD , but getting message of " repair could not possible".

Actually windows 8 Pro partition is not formatted, only the partition of XP got formatted ( earlier I had a XP+ Windows 7 dual boot and I upgraded on windows 7) .

Right now PC showing some message regarding Intel/processor/..etc.. on a black screen.

Actually I am least bothered about my personal files.

My ultimate concern is regarding activation of windows 8 pro with same product key.

Is there could be any problem with activation of windows 8 PRO?? and what procedure I have to follow?

Debugging :: Unable To Install Linux In Computer?

May 14, 2014

I have a graphic card nVidia GeForce GTX 750, which has worked properly in some cases but in others something strange is happening.

Recently I was playing FIFA 14 and suddenly a BSOD pop up, with a message "whea_uncorrectable_error".

Before I used to use Google Chrome as my default browser, but when I watched a video from YouTube in Chrome the same BSOD pop up.

I think the problem is related with the graphic card, but when I play other things, for example, Assassin's Creed or League of Legends, the problem never emerged.Another interesting thing is that I'm unable to install linux in my computer, because it reboots automatically after some minutes, and based on what I researched is related also with the incompatibility from linux (fedora, ubuntu) with my graphic card.

Dual Boot - Windows 8 Goes To Black After Install

Jul 30, 2013

I've recently installed a dual boot, Windows 7 and Windows 8. The installation went fine but then after a very short time my Windows 8 Screen goes black. I had to press the power button to exit.

I've checked the Power settings and ensured the "Turn off display" was "never". I also updated my Video drivers thinking that might be the problem. Both to no avail. I've done a "Refresh" and a "Reset (which took 3 hrs). Again, all was fine for a short time, but while exploring the OS, again the black screen.

I followed... re-formatting the hard drive during the new installation, trying generic video drivers and doing Resets and Refreshes. None of that worked and still doesn't. The installations do complete as before, but I don't have enough time to download new updates to perhaps correct whatever problem(s) there are before all goes black after a few minutes. As I stated before I have to hold down the power button to exit.

If this is a clue, once the screen goes black and I revert back to Window7, before loading, the File System on ALL drives, including C and the Windows 8 partition has to check for consistency before Windows 7 boots up.

I've been quite busy and haven't had a chance to try re-installing again until now. Thinking the problem might have been the actual drive I used for previous attempts (it was a SATA external drive which by the way I previously used for a dual boot Vista/with Win7), I then created new partitions on 2 different USB connected external drives and attempted to install. It wouldn't do the install on either one. I received messages "Setup does not support disks connected through USB or Firewire,.... my USB drives are connected directly to computer not a hub. So I'm forced to use the SATA created partitions for the installations. (Disk 1)

If it makes a difference, through Disk Management, I've deleted the Windows 8 installs from those partitions then re-created a "New Simple Volume" before trying again. I even tried creating another partition on C but it wouldn't allow an installation saying it was a dynamic drive. Prior to me creating that additional C partition all were Primary but now they're all Simple Volumes as per the color codes.

I have two OEM Windows 8 installation disks, I've tried both.

DUAL BOOT - How To Install Second Copy Of Windows 8 X64

Feb 18, 2014

I have ASUS laptop which came with pre-installed Windows 8.1 X64.

When I try to install a second copy of Windows 8.1 X64. I get the following message

"Windows can not be installed to this disk. The selected disk is of the GPT partition style"

I found suggestions at

#1 - How to "Clean" or "Clean All" a Disk with the Diskpart Command ... [URL] ...


I would like to know

1. Clean command of Diskpart will mark data on the HDD as being deleted. How do I recover my original Windows 8.1?

2. Does this command change GPT partition style to something else?

3. I have 2 HDD,

Disk 0- empty (1 TB)
Disk 1- OS and recovery partition etc (1TB)

Can I use clean command on Disk 0 (which is empty) . Will mix and match work?

4.Can I have more than 1 boot partition on GPT partition type?

I do not want to change Disk 1 due to my service warranty conditions.

Setup Installation :: How To Install Windows 7 As Dual Boot

Sep 12, 2013

I have a question on the best way to install Windows 7 as a dual boot on an existing Windows 8 installation on a new Asus Laptop. Most of the tutorials I've seen assume the pre-existing installation is Windows 7, and say that Windows 7 needs to be installed first, not an option when your Windows 8 comes pre-installed.

I have an Asus F75, and here is the partitioning:
1. 300 MB EFI System Partition, FAT32
2. 900 MB NTFS Recovery Partition (would seem to be the MS Reserved partition, is that correct?)
3. 279 GB NTFS OS Partition
4. 398 GB NTFS Data Partition
5. 20 GB NTFS Recovery Partition

It sounds like after installing Windows 7, the boot menu will be the Win7 text boot selection menu if you use that as the default OS, which is what I plan on doing, so I believe there isn't anything I need to do to that, is that correct?

I have turned of Fast Boot in Windows 8, and disabled Secure Boot in the system BIOS.

What should I do about the existing Data partition, which will be the Win7 partition. Should I:

a. Leave that intact and simply install Win7 to it, or
b. Delete the partition, install Win7 and allow the install to manage the unallocated space?

Do I have any other considerations other than collecting all the Win 7 drivers for the laptop (which I have already done)?

Install Windows 8.1 Dual Boot On A Separate Partition?

Jul 5, 2013

I have made my Windows 8.1 DVD, but I haven't committed to installing it yet.

I'd like to just install it on a separate partition on my second hard drive.

Normally I wouldn't hesitate to just go ahead and install it, but I'm not sure if the new Uefi bios will just except it and automatically set up the dual boot menus etc, the way that it did in the past.

Are there extra steps that I need to take before going ahead with the install.

I definitely don't want to replace my current Windows 8 install until the final version comes online at that time I will probably do a complete new install of all my software.

Samsung Ativ Smart PC Pro XE700T1C Dual Boot - Unable To Install Intel Android Onto PC?

Mar 6, 2014

I actually installed the Android on Intel Architecture onto my Samsung xe700t a few times over the last few months, adjusting windows 8 or android options to suit my needs, but a few days ago I decided to format my laptop and reinstall Windows 8 and reinstall Android as I have previously, I am now getting this error message at the very end of the android installation process:

fatal: assertion failed bootable/iago/plugins/gummiboot.c:gummiboot_execute:154 'efibootmgr encountered an error (status 100) root@android:/#

I have updated the bios, I have made sure my laptop is in UEFI format, I have made secure the BIOS isn't in secure boot, I have tried various USB sticks, I have also made sure the USB stick is first in the boot order.

So why I can't install Intel Android onto my pc anymore ...

Setup Installation :: Can't Boot Into Windows 8.1 After Messing With Linux

Jan 5, 2014

I've been messing with lubuntu and backtrack and decided to install Backtrack5 on my laptop(Lenovo N586). I couldn't boot into windows 8.1 after installing Backtrack5 R3, but I had no problem booting into backtrack(I think I made a mistake of installing backtrack bootloader in the same place where Windows bootloader was...). I was able to boot into windows 8.1 after fixing the windows bootloader, but this time I couldn't boot into backtrack5. I wanted to start fresh and uninstalled Backtrack5 using boot-repair-disk. And ever since I uninstalled the backtrack5, I cannot boot into anything unless I use live linux usb. I've literally tried almost everything I could find in the past a couple of days on the internet including the forum. It says my hard drive is locked and I don't really have any available options that actually work(like refresh, start up repair, diagnostic, reinstall, nothing works). Windows 7 recovery CD didn't work saying I am using different version of OS, so I should use different recovery CD.

Setup Installation :: Custom Recover Windows 8.1 Without Affecting Linux?

Jul 18, 2014

I am clean installing Windows 8.1 and Ubuntu on a friends new laptop and although I have taken Clonezilla images of partitions on my personal laptop should I ever need them I was hoping there was something more user friendly I could install on my friend's laptop. Anarethos Recovery Toos with Media Creator seems to be what I am after but I am not sure if that will mess up the boot settings or even completely remove Linux.

Ideally I am looking for something that can be launched by holding a hotkey down at boot. When launched it will offer to restore the main Windows 8.1 system partition (GPT) with all drivers and programs installed exactly how it is when I hand it over, and if possible offer to restore the Ubuntu /home partion. The crux is that Windows can be restored without affecting Ubuntu.

UEFI / Secureboot Preventing Linux Bootup - Will Windows 8.1 Work After Removing It

Apr 30, 2014

Okay now I have an issue with windows, namely secureboot and UEFI. HP Pavilion laptop that came preinstalled with windows 8.1 but didnt like it and wanted a dual boot.

So I gave him Ubuntu 13.10 as it has UEFI support and everything was fine until we updated to Ubuntu 14.04. Sadly it did not load windows via grub and windows would fail to boot.

However after repairing the windows boot manager I knew I had to reinstall linux which would normally be fine but now windows and windows alone now boots, no grub, no nothing.

I heard recently of this story: [URL] ....

However I checked everything and windows seems to be the cause of my woes. As does UEFI. Now we would like to keep windows on this machine however I am thinking of removing the /efi partition

Will windows 8 still work if I do this?
