Hi,I want to set up a triple boot machine using CentOS, Windows 7 and 8 on an UEFI board (Asrock H77).First off I would like to note that I have never had to deal with UEFI so far... [by brightsim]
This tutorial provides a step-by-step guide on how to triple-boot Windows 7 and 8 and Ubuntu 14.04 on a computer with UEFI firmware and on a single hard disk drive (HDD). The working assumption is that the first OS on the computer, which could be OEM or self-built, is Windows 8. Windows 7 will be installed alongside it, followed by […]
I have a z77 Asrock Extreme 4 board with the latest uefi firmware (2.90). I can't boot into uefi mode from the official Slackware64 dvd. When I select the cdrom/uefi entry from the uefi boot menu it goes to a blank screen with the text "grub" in the top right corner. It then freezes. The board boots into uefi with a fedora usb.
I've had a nightmare of a time installing Arch with UEFI (Z77e-itx). At first I couldn't get Arch to boot after a few installs, then I managed to get a working system but my windows hard drive somehow managed to lose its boot-loader.
This isn't totally true. It would certianly be easier to get UEFI working by initially booting ito some Linux UEFI environment. But you could also just put the boot manager or bootloader at \EFI\boot\bootx64.efi and configure it. Then set the system to boot UEFI and choose the drive that has this ESP, and it will take you into that bootloader. So assuming it is then co
I use an SSD as my boot device, and I have a HDD that I use for data. Both drives are set up using GPT/UEFI. I installed CentOS to its own partition on the HDD, and I have Windows 8.1 installed to the SSD. When I installed CentOS, it gave me a warning that said something to the effect of "WARNING! You are using GPT with a non-EFI system.
Wish to dual boot Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and CentOS 7.0, I have planned to first install Ubuntu 14.04 LTS by live USB into a laptop computer (boot both UEFI and legacy with UEFI first), followed by CentOS 7.0 in another live USB.
The Ubuntu installation was smooth. However the computer cannot recognise the CentOS 7.0 USB and directly boot into the installed Ubuntu whenever I restarted the machine.
