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 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 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 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.
When I try to install ubuntu 13.04 off a live usb, I do not see the option to install alongside windows 8. The version of windows 8 I have is one I upgraded from windows 7, so it uses bios. I used to be able to install ubuntu 12.04 and 12.10 when I had windows 7 installed. When I upgraded form windows 7 to 8 I had an install of 12.10.
I want to install Ubuntu alongside my Windows 7. I defragmented my C: drive and shrink it.
I then started the Ubuntu installation which I burned on CD. I followed the installation guide from the official site. I did step 3 and choose my wireless. According to the guide I supposed to arrive step 4 and install Ubuntu alongside Windows 7. But instead I arrived this place:
What did I made wrong?
I downloaded the desktop version of Ubuntu 12.10 32-bit and installed it in my computer with the "Universal Usb Installer". I restarted the computer and the computer automaticaly ran the Ubuntu Instalation. I set it to install alongside Windows 7. I was planning to leave 80GB for Windows and 170GB for Ubuntu. After I set everything, I cliked to install and then came my problem.
