Win 7 / Windows Installer Error
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 13, 2010
I currently have Windows 7 installed on an Acer Aspire One 532h netbook. On seeing the new Ubuntu release, I downloaded the Windows Installer to have a dual boot system. Unfortunately, I have had no luck, with either the downloader hanging after 12%, or when it does complete it gives an error.
I have chosen a fresh partition to install Ubuntu, and have created this through Windows 7 Disk Manager.
- 126 Gb
- exFAT file system (only option other than NTFS) - currently empty partition
On one attempt, the install completed but Ubuntu would not boot.
Each other attempt has resulted in a hang or errors as per below. If someone could advise how to rectify this issue, I would appreciate it a great deal.

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
Dual boot Ubuntu/windows installation USB stick
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 20, 2013
Finally after a long time, I can create an installation USB stick for Ubuntu (the easy one) and Win XP (not so easy and yes I did kill my recovery partition) for my Acer Aspire One and currently have both running again. To keep things interesting though, I was wondering if there is a way to create one USB stick with some sort of a dual boot setup so I can install both OS's.
12.10 Windows Installer not loading
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 19, 2013
I download the wubi.exe for the windows installation to try ubuntu in dual boot but it never loads.
i have run as admin, and redownloaded it.
Update: I troubleshooted it and it says is an Incompatible Application
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 4, 2010
I've just downloaded the windows installer, but before I proceed, theres a few things I want to be sure of;
1) I only have one drive on my laptop, which has Vista installed on it, but I want to keep vista, and dual boot it with Ubuntu. Does the installer simply create a new partition from the free space, leaving my install of Vista untouched, or does it overwrite it?
2) I have a 64-Bit system - is this a problem when using the Windows Installer? I saw 64 options for the disc images, but no option was given for the windows installer.
Also, whats the minimum ammount of space I should have to install ubuntu onto?
Installing ubuntu on NP780Z5ES01UB (UEFI) (Win 8 preinstalled)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 27, 2013
I have posted before about installing Ubuntu on my NP780Z5E-S01UB. I will give a quick recap of my previous problem below:
I installed Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit with really no problems on my laptop. I had it installed in UEFI mode with secure boot on. When I went to uninstall to install 13.04 I encountered my problem. Ubuntu was stuck on the boot menu in the UEFI settings. It was something like UEFI: ubuntu[...]. I could not get the entry off for anything. If I selected the entry, it went to a grub menu and said it couldn't start or something. I could boot into Windows 8 just fine, but the extra entry was annoying me. I had wiped my laptop and everything but still no dice. FINALLY after MONTHS of talking to customer support and googling, I got a BIOS updater tool which allowed me to reinstall my current BIOS version, which fixed the problem. Which brings me to my new concerns.
After dealing with that I learned that Ubuntu may brick certain samsung laptops with UEFI. I haven't found my exac
[How to] Multiboot USB from Linux ISOs/Windows Installer
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 25, 2013
Hello! I just suscribed to this forum to post this, since I couldn't find this information over the forum (I hope it is in the right section).
What will I be able to do?
Basically what we want to achieve is to be able to boot almost any Linux ISO (with the traditional loopback method) as well as being able to boot a Windows 7/8 installation from a USB.
Summarizing the process, we will make 2 FAT32 partitions in a USB, get the Windows Installation in the first partition (through syslinux with Universal USB installer). Then install grub2 to the second partition and modify the grub.cfg file to boot Linux ISOs and chainload to the Windows installation

Ubuntu server installer can't mount CDROM drive!

I'm having trouble mounting my CD-ROM drive in Ubuntu Server. It's a CSA CDR-1300A drive, works just fine in Windows 98, but when loading Ubuntu Server, it always fails to mount. The CD can be read just fine, but the Linux kernel apparently doesn't detect it.
File Encryption Ubuntu/Windows

Ok so im a little new to this, but i need to encrypt a few files on my flash drive and my computer. Is there an easy tool for Linux that will encrypt them so that it just asks for a password on both windows and any Linux distribution?
Running other Linux OS's on a Ubuntu/Windows dual boot?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 29, 2011
I am a very big n00b and am very poor when it comes to computer terminology and all but I am sick and tired of throwing good money at Microsoft so I decided finally to try Ubuntu as I've heard loads about it and am running a dual boot I use Ubuntu primarily but not entirely (mainly cause I'm not smart enough to figure out WINE and how to work PlayOnLinux yet.. but I'm slowly improving)
Anyways besides a quick "What's up all" I wanted to know, I've been reading about other Linux OS's now including lots of buzz about the new Linux Mint and Kubuntu I was wondering if there is a way to run one of them on top of the dual boot of Ubuntu and Windows. If its as easy as doing something in a terminal or even easier double clicking I could probably do that but I haven't learned any ingenuity as far as running things yet unless it's spelled out or made very easy... patience I'll get able to do all of that eventually.
