UEFI + Dual boot (Windows 7 + Ubuntu 12.04 or 13.04)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 2, 2013
Hi there, I'm trying to install ubuntu in dual boot with windows 7 on a Lenovo Ideapad Z500. This notebook use UEFI BIOS, but can be settled as legacy support.
I tried different configuration:
1- Bios Set-up: Legacy support, I can install windows 7 ultimate, but when I try to install ubuntu 12.04 or 13.04 I can't put it alongside to windows 7. if I choose other possibility, the program doesn't recognise the NTFS partition and so windows installation. I can only make a new installation of ubuntu deleting windows 7.
2- Bios Set-up: UEFI, I can install ubuntu but not windows 7 that stop during the first step.
The notebook has only one hard drive (1TB), The original O.S. is windows 8. In the Bios boot choice windows there is note that suggest to use UEFI only for windows 8 and for other O.S. Legacy support.
What can I do?

Installing Ubuntu alongside Windows 8 in UEFI
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 16, 2013
When I go to install Ubuntu 12.10, the partitioning step does not give me the option to install alongside Windows 8. Would I have to manually create a partition to direct Ubuntu to install on? I used Windows 8's built in disk management to shrink my Win8 partition, so do I just install Ubuntu on the free space?
Also, is there any advantage to using Windows' bootloader over GRUB with EasyBCD? I asked a different forum and someone mentioned it.
UEFI/Secure Boot and Ubuntu

So. I've tried to install Ubuntu (and other distros) on this computer to no avail.
My computer specs can be found here: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport...odTypeId=12454
Considering I'm having a ridiculous time installing any Linux OS on this UEFI computer, I was wondering what your thoughts might be on this link: http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/858. Geared towards the Linux Mint community, it seems a good fit for any distro. As I would be ditching Windows 8 completely in favor of a 100% Linux box, you think this might do the trick?
failed to boot on a UEFI computer (ThinkCentre Edge 92)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 18, 2012
I've installed Ubuntu 12.10 desktop x86-64 into a ThinkCentre Edge 92 PC. The install process went through just fine but it failed to boot. The computer says:
Error 1962: No operating system found
The boot info can be found in:
The firmware has been configured to boot in UEFI mode and QuickBoot has been disabled. The ubuntu live USB boots just fine.
Please help me on how I can troubleshoot this thing. For example, is it possible to invoke the UEFI shell or check any boot log?

Booting from USB - UEFI
I tried to boot from the USB in uefi and am greeted with the black and white grub menu, I select "try ubuntu" and it goes to the blank black screen. After doing some research and trying several different flags such as nomodeset and others it will not go past that boot screen.
Booting from USB - CSM/Legacy/BIOS
I was able to successfully boot off of the usb in CSM mode and was able to install ubuntu. Once I did everything worked and was able to reboot with no problems. Until I tried to boot windows where it did not boot windows (I cant remember the exact error because it was several days ago). So I switched the computer to UEFI mode to load windows, it loaded and then a
Accessing installed Ubuntu partition on UEFI, GPT and Secure boot enabled ultrabook
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 8, 2013
I am trying to access the installed Ubuntu partition on a UEFI, GPT and Secure boot enabled Windows 8 ultrabook (Sony Vaio Duo 11).
My partitions are shown in this screenshot.
The installation went fine. As expected after reboot I directly landed on Windows 8. Now, I would like to have a nice graphical Windows 8 boot manager (I have a touch screen. So thought this would be good to have) or Grub to choose which OS I boot to at the start. Could you please let me know how I should ideally go about achieving this.
I tried and failed:
I tried using EasyBCD 2.2 to create an entry for Ubuntu on the Windows boot manager. EasyBCD does not save my preferences. I follow this guide.
By default EasyBCD shows Ubuntu as Entry#1 and Windows 8 as Entry#2. I edit my boot menu by clicking on "Edit Boot Menu" option, and delete Ubuntu entry, click save settings. After a system restart I still see
[SOLVED] Dual boot Windows 8 and ubuntu on UEFI system
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 16, 2013
I'm trying to dual boot windows 8 and ubuntu but it is nearly impossible for me. I've installed first the lts 12.04.1 but grub 1.9 is not the better boot loader for a new uefi-secure booted-64 bit system. Then I've installed ubuntu 12.10 with grub2. This time linux actually run but the grub menu is not able to dual boot both the o.s., only ubuntu. I need many software only windows supports.
I've also used some ubuntu software to repair mbr. So I've restored the original system configuration. Obviously, I've lost linux.
In some forums and articles I've read Secure boot is the cause of my problem and If I want to use ubuntu I have to disable it.
My system is a Dell XPS 8500 and there is the option to disable the secure boot. Now I am new to uefi and I don't know what will happen if I disable the default configuration. My question is: if I disable secure boot, will I boot Windows 8 or not?
Thanks in advance.
