Install ubuntu 12.10 with wubi and keep old ubuntu 11.10 wubi installation
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 8, 2013
[you may have seen this question on askubuntu, I'm posting this problem here as well because I hope on getting a faster and more complete reply]
I'd like you to help me, if you may!
I need to install ubuntu 12.10 on my notebook, which has Windows 7 as default OS, and I prefer to install it through wubi just to get the least problems in terms of warranty
(therefore, freeing space to create an empty partition and putting a full install on it is not an answer in my case)
My Hard Disk Drive current setup is the following:
100 MB NTFS - Windows System - Primary Partition(C: ) 270 GB NTFS - Windows 7 OS - Primary Partition(D: ) 400 GB NTFS - Logical Partition24 GB - Recovery Stuff - Primary Partition
I already installed ubuntu 11.10 using wubi ( in D: ), and I NEED to keep that installation because I will be working on that setup in the future
(upgrading isn't an option either, i need 11.10 as it is)
I already backed up 11.10 folder, and let's

3.2 ...Fix battery drain
3.3 ...Update BIOS without windows
Lenovo's EFI implantation seems to be not perfect on some newer Lenovo notebooks. After successfully installing Ubuntu the notebook is not able to load the bootloader by default. It seems to be a problem with GPT partition tables and non windows bootloaders.
It took me a hole day to figure out, how to get Ubuntu still working.
So lets start getting Ubuntu on your Lenovo!
UPDATE: evil_hog found out how to install Ubuntu with GPT partition table! Here now the updated guide.

How do you install ubuntu on an ssd drive and maintain windows caching?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 25, 2013
I wanted to install ubuntu on my laptop. It's a lenovo u310 and it has a 32 gb ssd drive for caching windows and a 500 gb hard drive.
I want to know if its possible to partition the sdd drive and install ubuntu on about 10 gb of it and keep the rest of the ssd for the windows caching process. Im a college student and we use windows, so I must keep it. And I want it to run as fast as possible, can't really afford the loss in productivity. But I also want to install ubuntu though and want it to run as fast as possible.
Is it possible to do this?

Can't install Ubuntu 14.10 after GTX 970 installed
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 25, 2015
I recently got a Nvidia Geforce GTX 970 SC, and after I installed it, it basically messed up my Ubuntu installation, for I couldn't get into the desktop and has a lower resolution. I tried to reinstall Ubuntu 14.10, but to add insult to injury, Sometimes I get stuck on a blank screen when trying to get into the live session, or installation. When I do get into the live desktop or installation, the installation always fails. When the live disc boots, I get a message saying "booting into insecure mode"
Any help will be thanks.

install ubuntu server 10.04.4 from usb stick
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 8, 2012
Hi, I was installing ubuntu server 10.04.4 (from usb) today having some problems and here is the result of my working out:
- can't detect cd-room: this can be solved by mounting the iso file into /cdrom, but this won't solve the debootstrap error coming on, so what I did is:
- mounting the usb device:
mount -t vfat /dev/sdc1 /mnt/usb
(sdc1 varies, to detect it, ls -l /dev/sd*)
- copying the iso from usb to /root (this solve the deboostrap error later)
cp /mnt/usb/ubuntu-10.04.4-server-amd64.iso /root/
- mount the iso to /cdrom
mount -t iso9600 -o loop /root/ubuntu-10.04.4-server-amd64.iso /cdrom
- go back to the installation, it should find the cd-rom and go on installation
- until the deboostrap error appears, go back and find "load components from an iso image", it works for me, (some suggest to unplug the network, to change the RAM reading speed from BIOS..., but after a long night, those solutions cant do the magic )
