Ready to optimize your JavaScript with Rust? Logged on in ubuntu and it was working fine. So, I would like to know, what the boot-repair was supposed to do? And why it was giving me that error? I know in my setup it made the difference between booting and not booting Ubuntu. Not sure if that clarified that …. That matters. I want to install ubuntu alongside already installed windows 8.

I have already prepared separate partition for it. My main concern is still the booting part. Will it work? Are you sure your computer has an older BIOS? You could of course also consider WUBI , where Ubuntu is installed from within Windows, without the need to repartition etc.

It uses the Windows Bootloader to select the boot OS. However, it does not appear to support hybernation. Thank you for your awesome tutorial! Thanks Beemo for the positive feedback! The method described only focusses on using UEFI … since Windos 8 and newer typically are installed that way. As you have noticed, switching to Legacy Mode screws up your Windows, and switching back ruins your Linux Bootloader.

What you could try: try to install Freya for those of us, including myself, not familiar with this OS see Elementary OS , it appears a distro based on Ubuntu as described above. So in UEFI mode. Sometimes you need to enter the admin password to get to that option. I did see a post at SuperUser. In essence you disable FastBoot, and optionally enable the boot menu my laptop uses F12 for that if I recall correctly.

If you find out how that worked on your computer, could you post brand and model and the steps you took? Hans, thanks for the answer i will try what you just suggest at night. If i manage to set win8 and elementary to boot on uefi y will post it with all the steps y follow. Wish me luck! Again: keeping my fingers crossed!

Well hans, i did step by step what you said and the two systems are working just fine on uefi mode. I really apriciate your help! I am with a lot of things and i dont have the time to do a proper guide on how i manage to solve all my problems. Apart of this the pc i was working on, was my girlfrind pc and she need it a soon as possible. So i am just posting to say thanks for your help and when i have time y will post a proper guide with screenshots and all the steps.

Pd: if some one need any helps just ask i will try to help. I have elementary os on my computer for 2 years now and is fantastic. It a really simple nice os. Awesome — glad to hear things are working …. Thanks for the tip! I am only able to boot from CSM — legacy mode and get Ubuntu options. Have no idea how to proceed. I see the windows partition is till there. Hi, I have ubuntu I want to repair windows 8. Can anybody let me known how can I do that without loosing my data and affecting ubuntu?

Your Windows will not work in case you switched to Legacy. I deleted Ubuntu It worked well til I screwed something up in installing backtrack.

So it pissed me off so I went and followed a tut on how to delete it. I went and deleted the partition, followed all those steps, have only a usb with my Windows 8. Since then. I am stuck and no matter what I do, any command, etc will not work. I boot it up, holding F12 and even just rebooting without pressing anything, and I get. Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB lists possible command completions.

Anywhere else TAB lists possible device or file completions. I researched and tried many different things people suggest and nothing works. Like I said I have windows on my usb the way they told me to create the recovery and I have no clue what to do to access the usb to redo my computer… Is there a simple code to type into grub?

I can not for the life of me get past this damn screen lol. Please help! I have not run into this issue and I do not have an Asus laptop either, so I did some searching, in the hopes that they are helpful to you. Next thing you could try is to do a regular factory restore so the boot manager gets wiped, and after that restore your Windows from USB — this might be your best option.

Hopefully this is the case for yours as well, and you might be able to boot from USB. Here you can also find some other methods. I got lucky.. Found out that Ubuntu made its way to be the first thing on the Boot list. But I got lucky, changed the boot sequence and deleted the Ubuntu options. I see why nothing worked now. Everything is good now and computer is back to normal, and I re-partitioned my HD so all is good. Except for my Nvidia Geforce graphics card.

I love that card. But thank you for your help! Take care! I was wondering if this process mentioned here will work in my laptop for setting up a dual boot system with Windows 8. Can I still make it to dual boot? I have not tried this, but I would assume that the regular dual boot install for Ubuntu would work just fine. See the official Ubuntu Dual-boot guide. The Windows partition might not be visible in regular Ubuntu, but if you made space available, then during setup the disk manager app should see the Windows partition just fine.

I can totally relate to being nervous … I would be nervous too. Finally it is all done. I went forward with Something Else and created the partitions for Ubuntu and the rest of the installation process was smooth. The problem appeared when I rebooted. It booted directly into Ubuntu. After some searching I stumbled upon the following post and it just fixed it :.

Ubuntu Then after rebooting I was presented with the grub menu where I could choose to boot either Ubuntu or Windows. Great to hear it worked well for you too, even with Linux Mint!

Thank you for taking the time to post feedback! Thanks for the great article. It was very helpful. After doing everything it was still booting straight to Windows without showing any option during the boot.

After some searching I found out that HP has this additional thing in their machines during the boot process. A small annoyance but I can live with that. Thanks Asif for posting the HP tip! Thanks for the wonderful article. I tried installing ubuntu on my Acer laptop and made some mistakes, and unfortunately lost the entire OS. I would like to give it a shot again, but want to find out if it is possible to install the ubuntu on D since my PC has two drives.

I presume the windows is installed on C, while D is almost empty! Is it possible to install on D instead? Can I be certain to see the same option to partition the D drive as you explained? Yes, of course you can install Ubuntu on your second harddrive. Great tutorial, I am able to install successfully without any issue with Win 7. Just one thing, I got dual boot menu even without trying windows step. Still I tired to run commond on Win 7 command prompt and got error following error, but thats not issue as I already got dual boot option on startup.

Glad to hear your setup is working and thanks for posting your findings as well. Excellent article. One of the most detailed I have seen in implementation and explanation. I have done the dual boot on separate drives One worked well with Ubuntu and one was a disaster with Red Hat. My question is the following. Is the Windows 8. If it is how would I see it in the Disk Manager? And would I go through the same procedure as you have outlined to install Ubuntu.

I have had limited to no luck finding the answers to these questions. The best answer I got so from Asus is there would be a C and D partition. One last question would be if this is correct regarding C; and D: partitions why could I not install both operating systems on the SDD? Thanks for the compliment! I do not see why that would not work. The procedure would be the same, although I do not have experience with this particular computer.

The 2nd drive should have no influence on that. Just make sure you choose the right drive in the procedure.

Also: before doing the procedure: make sure to have the recovery media nearby — just in case. Thanks again Hans for the quick reply. Couple more questions. And thank you again for your help and assistance.

I actually enjoy helping out — wish I could make it my daytime job! In you case, I would just take about Gb or if you need lees; less than Gb for Ubuntu. This way Windows has space left — since it fills up pretty quick. On your D-drive the 1Tb disk you could store data and if needed install your applications once your SSD gets too full.

I would be careful with gPartEd … you could ruin things without even meaning to do so …. Actually now that I think about it, there was one difference in my installation procedure and the tutorial.

I noticed that you wrote that the bit AMD version was a special one for MAC but I could not find any other versions available for download. Do you know if this is the right one to install alongside Windows in a conventional Acer PC? I would however expect this version to work as well. I used Thanks Ubuntu! Well, I just tried installing So I guess that will do for the time being.

Thank you very much for your time and help though! I actually had some problems with the I posted the detailed procedure here. Thanks in advance mate! Hope this helps. After installation, i am able to boot into ubuntu or windows first time, but after that I always get the grub prompt.

I very much appreciate the GPT tip and the compliment of course …. The data are very important please help me. These tools might work for you, unless the space the partition once used has been overwritten by another partition. I had a dual boot of pre-installed windows 8. After that pc boots directly to windows. I want to dual boot again. After every installation attempt at the first restart grub is there,but if i choose windows from grub menu no more linux after that.

I tried boot repair from live cd with no result ,every boot repair returns an error url. Except that time i did it from linux but again at the next restart,when i went to windows no grub just windows as alawys.

My system has uefi bios, secure boot is disabled, fast boot is enabled since at the first and sucessful installation everything was fine. All this make me think that a clean install of windows to remove every partition and OEM partition if possible is a solution. So to the point now,do you think that it worths a try to use your instructions or will i get the same results?

The Windows partition might not be visible in regular Ubuntu, but if you made space available, then during setup the disk manager app should see the Windows partition just fine.

I can totally relate to being nervous … I would be nervous too. Finally it is all done. I went forward with Something Else and created the partitions for Ubuntu and the rest of the installation process was smooth.

The problem appeared when I rebooted. It booted directly into Ubuntu. After some searching I stumbled upon the following post and it just fixed it :.

Ubuntu Then after rebooting I was presented with the grub menu where I could choose to boot either Ubuntu or Windows. Great to hear it worked well for you too, even with Linux Mint!

Thank you for taking the time to post feedback! Thanks for the great article. It was very helpful. After doing everything it was still booting straight to Windows without showing any option during the boot. After some searching I found out that HP has this additional thing in their machines during the boot process. A small annoyance but I can live with that.

Thanks Asif for posting the HP tip! Thanks for the wonderful article. I tried installing ubuntu on my Acer laptop and made some mistakes, and unfortunately lost the entire OS.

I would like to give it a shot again, but want to find out if it is possible to install the ubuntu on D since my PC has two drives. I presume the windows is installed on C, while D is almost empty! Is it possible to install on D instead? Can I be certain to see the same option to partition the D drive as you explained? Yes, of course you can install Ubuntu on your second harddrive. Great tutorial, I am able to install successfully without any issue with Win 7.

Just one thing, I got dual boot menu even without trying windows step. Still I tired to run commond on Win 7 command prompt and got error following error, but thats not issue as I already got dual boot option on startup. Glad to hear your setup is working and thanks for posting your findings as well. Excellent article. One of the most detailed I have seen in implementation and explanation. I have done the dual boot on separate drives One worked well with Ubuntu and one was a disaster with Red Hat.

My question is the following. Stefan Szebinski Stefan Szebinski 1 1 1 bronze badge. I was able to boot it straight away.

I’ll record a screencast when I have a chance to demonstrate. So, what Parallels version do you use, ylluminate? I’m running 1. Dave suggested in his post that the Parallels version used could make the difference Stefan, notice I have the version in my original post? So as noted initially and perhaps you’re missing a step if you missed that info? Added a screencast for you above in my answer. But then what’s the difference?

Doesn’t work for me Show 3 more comments. Dave Dave 1 1 1 bronze badge. What would be especially cool would be advice on how to install Docker Desktop on a Ubuntu Hmm, can you tell me something Dave? Thanks again, ylluminate. I just took a snapshot, installed docker and all is running. Your help is very much appreciated. Best Dave — Dave. So, now I have: 1. Thank you! I didn’t test it in PD14, but only in 15 version of PD, and thank you for your guidance and it inspiring me.

Can anyone help me with the same. Thanks in advance. Skip to content. Sign in Sign up. Instantly share code, notes, and snippets. Last active Dec 2, Code Revisions 7 Stars 8 Forks 2.
