Dual booting Ubuntu and Jolicloud
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 25, 2010
I did a fresh install to make dual-boot system with Ubuntu and Jolicloud on my Gigabyte M912M netbook. I installed Jolicloud 1.0 first with UFD, it went well. However I failed to boot Ubuntu Netbook Remix 10.04 from UFD, all I have is a blank screen with a blinking cursor. I happen to have Fedora ISO as well, so I tried it, just in case, but it also wouldn't work.
Help please,.. I can't stand a day without Ubuntu..

I am running a Kubuntu laptop with a 39 gig HDD. I have no other distros installed, but I want to set up a dual boot system with Ubuntu Christian Edition. Any tutorials or help would be AWESOME. Thank you!
kubuntu 13.04 install on ppc nvidia g5 dual 2ghz(a sad story)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 9, 2013
Ok first off, it will do nothing without any twitching...You might need to do something at the yaboot, thanks to @Macmichigan for his wise advice for me to finally has the live cd working and watching the kubuntu desktop
1. type at the yaboot: live video=offbff nouveau.modeset=0 single
2, then when the graphic card is loaded it will simply stall at the white screen, then type: modprobe nvidiafb mode_option=1680x1053-32 (my resolution) be careful you will be typing on a freeze screen you won't see a thing.
3. When hit enter you will be at the terminal, just type sudo start lightdm and voila! you will be at the desktop for Kubuntu 13.04 very impresive...but problem is it doesn't install at all (usually crashes at 80%) it is a bug, here is the work around.
go terminal and type:
sudo mv /usr/share/ubiquity-slideshow/slides/index.html /usr/share/ubiquity-slideshow/slides/index.html.bak hit enter and try the install again, now it will work, slow but it will work.
After the installation
[SOLVED] Help me remember name of dual boot utility
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 3, 2013
I have a Windows 7 laptop which I've also installed Kubuntu 13.04 onto. However, it still only boots to Windows 7 without giving you any option to choose Kubuntu. (You can see my conversation about my install here: http://www.kubuntuforums.net/showthr...766#post330766 )
Some years back, I set up a tri-boot desktop PC with Ubuntu 8.04, Windows 7, and Windows XP. Ubuntu was installed on the primary drive and was the only OS on it while 7 and XP were installed on a secondary drive. On the primary drive I edited Grub to give the user a choice between Ubuntu or 7. If the user chose Windows, it went to the secondary drive and gave the user the choice of 7 or XP. For the secondary drive, I used a utility to edit some kind of boot file to give the person that choice.
That's where my problem comes in. I don't remember the name of the utility. I remember you could use it to give users the choice of Windows or Linux. I think it's likely what I need here because I don't think this b
Dual Booting Various Linux Distro Windows
location: linux.com - date: November 25, 2012
Hello everyone! Im fairly new to Linux and I have purchased a load of new Distros. I will be installing quite a few on friends and families laptops and I just wondered which of the following Distros I have will and will not allow you to install the Linux OS alongside windows automatically (i.e when installing it gives you the option to boot alongside windows)...
I don't want to risk wiping the Windows OS so Im a bit anxious to just go ahead and install them and also I dont want to have to set up partitions and install GRUB etc manually?

dual boot Ubuntu 12.04 / OS X Lion /Refit fail "missing operating system"
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 6, 2013
I have been working at repurposing a mid-2009 MacBook Pro (5,5) as dual-boot OS X and Ubuntu 12.04
I have gotten fairly far, but post-installation of Ubuntu, it is failing to reboot. This was a machine with a failing HD, and I decided that while I was upgrading the drive, I would make it dual boot
What I have done so far:
1) Single boot install from live 12.04 CD of Ubuntu (worked fine, standard .iso) - I did this to test and make sure ubuntu would install and work ok.
2) erase and re-partition and reinstall of OS X Lion. (partitioned disk... I now have working OS X including the EFI partition, OS X main partition, Recovery partition) In Disk Utility I created additional partiton for linux. + one for shared files. - Created these as hfs+
3) Install Refit - Verify that I can boot into OS X fine.
4) Install ubuntu 12.04 --- This seemed to work fine, ( I erased one of the hfs+ partitions, and re-created an ext4 and a swap partition from the free space)
Dual booting OSX lion and any linux distro with rEFIt
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 12, 2011
Have any mac users out there managed to dual-boot a new macbook pro (this year) running OSX 10.7 with a linux distro? Every tutorial I see is for older macbooks, and rEFIt, when I tried to use it, wouldn't really work - no boot menu showed up, and for some reason my macbook would stall every other (seriously - I did experiments) time I tried to boot up into anything. Has anyone managed to dual boot the two?

Dual boot problems with Mandriva/Mageia
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 7, 2011
While Kubuntu 11.04 is now my main distribution, I have also been testing the beta versions of Mageia. In attempting to have this as a subsidiary distribution in a multi-boot situation, I have run into a problem that I had previously experienced while attempting to use Mandriva in a similar way - the boot process terminates in a kernel panic because Grub2 doesn't properly identify the default boot location in Mageia/Mandriva.
The problem doesn't seem to arise (for me, anyway) with other distributions still using Grub1, such as openSUSE and Fedora, and has apparently already been raised upstream. See:
This bug was marked as resolved in version 1.98 of Grub2 back in August 2010. Nevertheless, the issue still exists in version 1.99~rc1-13ubuntu, as used in Ubuntu and Kubuntu 11.04.
Is this a regression? Has anyone else experienced the same problem? Can anyone confirm that I should lodge a bug here, given the version numb
MacBook Air Mountain Lion Dual Boot
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 18, 2012
I have looked on forums, YouTube and the official tutorials (which aren't correct by the way). I have a 2012 MacBook air without anyway of using a disk (other than via my iMac, but I don't think that would work for this). I am running Mountain Lion 10.8.
Basically what I want is to be able to dual boot Ubutu and Moutain Lion like I do Mountain Lion and Windows 7 on my iMac.
By only option is USB, which I thought I managed to do. I got it so I could load it from the USB stick, but when I tried to install and pick a Partition it just didn't work. I kept getting this error:
"No root file system is defined. Please correct this from the partitioning menu."
If someone could help me with this I would be very grateful as I really want to be able to use Ubuntu on my MacBook Air, but I don't want to lose OSX!
