I got a notebook with a Debian install along with Windows 7.The temperature showed by Conky seems OK (I wonder if it's right), something around 66°C. But the notebook feels a lot hotter running Debian than Windows 7.
I have a Sony Vaio notebook with Windows 8(UEFI) installed,after trying to install Ubuntu 12.04 LTS(I cancelled the installation,before the part to choose a disk, and restarted the pc) from a usb sticky,every time i turn on the computer a GNU GRUB bash show up.I can't figure it out how boot Windows again!
How can i boot Windows(or at least the UEFI menu) from the gnu grub bash?
I am trying to get ubuntu to dual boot with windows 8 on my notebook. Whenever I boot up, it goes directly to windows. The notebook is a lenovo z580 that came preloaded with windows 7. I did a clean install for windows 8.
I brought a new Notebook which has pre-installed Windows 8.1 with an uefi* (-Bios) and secure boot*.
(* can switch or turn so off, still no success)
When i try to install Ubuntu 12.04.3, the installer doesn't recognize Windows 8.1.
There were options, to delete the whole disk or do something else.
The second option, shows a few partitions (NTFS) but no Windows.
I've been using Ubuntu for years. Now I bought a new notebook and want to install Ubuntu again but I can't. My notebook is a Lenovo S300 ieadpad with preinstalled Windows 8. I want Ubuntu to be my only OS.
Here (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI) I read some instructions to how install Ubuntu on a UEFI system. So I downloaded ubuntu-13.04-desktop-amd64.iso and created a live USB.
I wanted to setup a dual boot for Windows 7 and Centos 7
I had a Windows 7 machine with 500GB disk. I shrank the Windows partition to provide space for Centos 7 (roughly 230GB). I created a USB Centos 7 netinstall stick and booted from that. I ran the install configured as best I knew to install Centos 7 into the free space (rather than over the whole disk).
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.
I own a Dell Inspiron 14 with Windows 7. These days,I format my notebook and install Ubuntu 12.04 and remove Windows. The system works without any problem.
Due to my University, I had to reinstall Windows OS, so I could have some programs (ex:NX 7.5), but this time I made partitions on my hard drive, one namely, to install Ubuntu, and the other to install Windows on.
