I have a Toshiba computer with windows 8 on on it, but I want to delete or over write the windows with Linux. How would this be done I have been using Ubuntu in a Dual boot system, but I am unhappy with the dual boot system and with Ubuntu. What others distros are good for newbies on a laptop.
I currently run Windows 7 from a 256GB SSD as my Operating System. Lately, for school, I've been using openSUSE linux inside a VirtualBox PC and I'm really liking it. I'm starting to hate even working in Windows. But I can't just abandon Windows.
I've been considering dual booting openSUSE and will likely purchase another SSD for openSUSE.
I have a Vaio notebook with Windows 7 64 bit.
I want to dual boot it with Arch Linux.
I have three primary partitions: Recovery, System reserved (Active and Boot) and the Windows C: drive. I have resized the large partition with the the Windows C: drive.
Now I have an empty space where I could create the Linux partition, but I am lost as concerns the boot loader.
After Tuesday, Microsoft will no longer provide technical assistance or automatic updates that help protect your computer that runs Windows XP. Another alternative is to install a free Linux operating system. You can first try out a system using a live CD or USB boot.
I am new to Linux and Ubuntu and generally new to another OS than windows. But, I would like to dual boot Ubuntu on windows 7. I have downloaded the Ubuntu installer and I get the option to install Ubuntu alongside Windows 7. Will I get a choice everytime I start up my PC to what OS I want to boot in?
I recently installed Fedora 19 on a dual boot with Windows 8 and it's working great but I do not have an option to boot into Windows as it is hibernated.
I have done some research and apparently this is because of Window 8's fast startup feature which should have been disabled before a dual boot. Is there anyway to disable this feature when I cannot access Windows itself?
