I have a Asus n56vz and I am trying to install Ubuntu 12.10 alongside my Windows 7.
I just want to mention that I am completely new to UNIX and that I have already tried the following methods:
Trying to install directly from a USB (ubuntu doesn't see my windows 7 and thus I do not have the install alongside windows option).
Shrinking my C: drive using windows disk-managment and leaving it unallo
I recently bought a new ASUS Zenbook UX301 series with windows 8. I then updated to Windows 8.1. I have used Ubuntu before, and have had it installed through VirtualBox on my macbook for over a year now.
I have windows 8 installed on my Sony Vaio laptop and want to install ubuntu 12.10 from a live DVD purchased from osdisc.com alongside windows 8. I have quite a few questions. Does this version include boot repair so I can follow the ubuntu documentation? Can I use wubi.exe to install this ubuntu version if I disable UEFI?
I downloaded Ubuntu and put it onto a DVD and i assume it works fine because the disk is working. I looked around at the options and noticed that I could install alongside windows, but I chose to just try it. Now I've decided to install it alongside windows(vista) but now the option is no longer there. Any ideas..?
I have been using Ubuntu for a few years. Recently my Laptop HDD crashed and I had it replaced. Now I have installed Windows 7 (Home 64) - the same was installed on the previous HDD. I have also been using a multi boot option with Windows 7 and Ubuntu.
After the installation of Windows 7, I tried to install Ubuntu as usual.
i installed edubuntu 12.04 alongside windows 7 ultimate on my asus laptop and it worked ok
then i tried to do it for two of my friends, both HP and windows 7 ultimate, but instead of showing "install ubuntu alongside windows 7" it says install it inside the Windows OS
i want it outside of Windows and to be alongside it, how's that?
The first thing I did was pop in the Ubuntu CD while in Windows. It only gave me the option 'Demo and full installation' instead of 'Install Ubuntu alongside Windows' like it has in the past. Then, I restarted my computer with the disc still in the drive, and booted into the LiveCD environment.
