location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 7, 2014
This is my first time installing Ubuntu 14.04 on a Toshiba S50t-A following the advice in this community (Main guide here and here)
Issue: System boots straight into Windows after Ubuntu is installed - No Grub boot menu ever shows up.
System is a Toshiba S50t-A
Windows 8 pre installed with UEFI
Steps I have taken
1) Fresh install (Back to factory)
2) Completed all Windows 8 updates
3) Updated BIOS 1.70
3) Defragmented hard drive
4) Moved the recovery partition to a USB stick
5) Used Disk Manager to shrink the main windows 8 partition
6) Downloaded Ubuntu 14.04 and main a bootable USB stick (guide here..)
7) Disabled Fast Boot under power options in Windows 8
8) Checked under the UEFI that secure boot was disabled and Boot is set to UEFI, Fast boot turned off here as well.
9) Set boot sequence to USB
10) Ubuntu loads - I can choose Try or Install
11) Install 20GB /, 2GB swap, 200GB /home
13) no error in the install
14) on reboot system goes straight to Windows 8

Can't install Ubuntu on Toshiba C55A1N1 Laptop Windows 8 UEFI Blank Screen
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 18, 2014
I recently bought a Toshiba C55-A-1N1 Laptop, and I can't get Ubuntu to install on it. It came pre-installed with Windows 8.
I have disabled fast boot in windows. Secure boot was already disabled in the BIOS (or UEFI or whatever it is).
I have tried only with the Live CD as I do not have a USB key at the moment. I have tried 13.10 and 12.04.4, both 64 bit.
After putting the disk in the drive, then starting the machine up, I do get to a GRUB screen. However before reaching grub, there are two screens. The first flashes up very quickly, and has some text in the top left which I cannot read. The second then stays up for about a second, and says:
error: variable root not set
Then GRUB loads. After selecting the option to try Ubuntu, or the option to install directly, the screen just goes black. I can hear the optical drive for a bit, but then that goes quiet.
I have tried increasing the screen brightness using the buttons on the keyboard (both with and without holding down the FN
Ubuntu 14.04 not booting after install alongside preinstalled Windows 8 UEFI
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 29, 2014
I have a Toshiba l50-a-1d6 (i7 4700mq, Intel HD graphics 4600 + Nvidia gt740m) with Windows 8 UEFI preinstalled.
I installed Ubuntu 14.04 from a USB stick alongside Windows following the official documentation + this: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI
The problem is that i don't see GRUB2 at boot and Windows starts immediately.
So i ran boot-repair from live USB following this (http://askubuntu.com/questions/44981...n-ubuntu-14-04) cause there isn't boot-repair for 14.04 version, but it changed nothing.
Here's the boot info: http://paste.ubuntu.com/7301085/
Dual Boot Windows 8.1 with Ubuntu 14.04 UEFI with caching SSD and HDD
- date: April 29, 2014
I am trying to dual boot Ubuntu desktop 14.04 with Windows 8.1 on an Asus Ultrabook (Vivobook). This device has a 24GB SSD and a 750GB HDD. I can see the HDD in Windows Disk Management but not in Explorer, so I guess the SSD is a caching disk.
I have created the partition for Ubuntu using Windows (it is the 26GB in the results below), but I would like to know what steps to take to ensure that I do not mess up Windows 8. I am posting this from within a live disk Ubuntu. Plese let me know what I need to do so as not to mess this up. Thanks.

Where can I download an old windows installer version of ubuntu on the site?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 30, 2010
I see that Ubuntu has released a brand new version as of 48 hours ago. I actually like the old version's look and feel better (human theme!), but more importantly, I feel that the new version is too buggy, esp with the touchpad driver. I can't use my touchpad well at all. Also my video card does not seem to work.
Can someone show me where the old version of ubuntu with the windows installer is located? I can't seem to find it. I really think that the windows installer is a stroke of genius and I've never seen anything easier than that on any platform.
Installing Ubuntu 12.04 with Windows installer
location: linux.com - date: September 23, 2012
I recently discovered a different way to install Ubuntu desktops through the windows Ubuntu installer. It worked for the latest version... no need for iso disk or usb stick. Of course you must have Windows installed on your computer... below is the link.
Some may have already heard about this, but as usual I am late in learning.
I used the windows installer to get Ubuntu. Which file system is it using?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 14, 2013
I'm thinking of trying to shrink the widows part of my partition and increase the Ubuntu portion because I just accepted the 18GB default while installing. From what I understand, with the windows installer, a NTFS partition was created?
Is there a way with either windows or Ubuntu to examine all that? It would be nice to give Ubuntu a lot more room to play with.
Uninstalling Ubuntu from Windows installer.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 24, 2010
I installed Ubuntu via the windows installer (side by side, not partitioned) the other day. I installed it 2 or 3 times, I forget why. So I ran Wubi.exe, it asked me if i wanted to uninstall it. I said yes so in a split second it apparently uninstalled it. My hard drive space remained the same so clearly nothing was done.
Ubuntu cannot be found in my program and features control panel. Thanks for the help, sorry if this is a stupid question. Im completely new to Ubuntu.
Install Ubuntu 14.04 (UEFI, Windows Dual Boot) with FakeRaid RAID0 active
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 15, 2014
Ok, I'm at the point of having to go back to Windows from Ubuntu for the first time in 9 years!!! NOoooo!!!
Problem: Laptop has SSD+HDD combo (32Gb + 750Gb) set up as a RAID0 to cache the HDD.
Minor problem: Its UEFI, SecureBoot etc. But these aren't the problem ... all detected and dealt with Ok.
The problem is the FakeRaid. The Ubuntu installer doesn't detect the RAID0 or any partitions and so simply suggests I install Ubuntu over all the existing OS. Following all advice from many forums, I run modprobe dm-mod; dmraid -ay beforehand. The installer then sees the Partitions and using the manual allocation options I select the pre-prepared partitions for root, & Home (Swap and EFI are picked up Ok). I select the RAID root for the boot partition (which I know is also correct).
The installer runs and all looks Ok. The write to /EFI always leaves nothing ... it seems to be cached on the SSD and not written through to the /EFI partition, but I got around this by co
