Is it safe as instructions said?
If I install Ubuntu by this way, could I while updating Ubuntu update grub?
because I saw this way install Ubuntu, when start Ubuntu is using Windows's boot manager.
I am having some trouble installing Ubuntu 12.04 with the Windows installer. The instructions at http://www.ubuntu.com/download/help/install-ubuntu-with-windows say (in step 7) that I chose to boot with Ubuntu, but the black screen doesn't come up: it just goes straight to Windows. I've tried to boot it from a USB stick but it won't read it until Windows boots up.
I have created a Live USB for Ubuntu 13.10 64 bit using Universal-USB-Installer-18.104.22.168
I have restarted and booted from the USB; tried Ubuntu without installing. Everything works fine there including web browsing, videos, installing new software etc. So I decide to install Ubuntu as dual boot option to Windows 8.
When I tried installing, the options do not show the existing Windows 8 OS.
I'm installing Ubuntu 12.10 along side windows 7. I have installed windows then Ubuntu 12.10, each on a different partition. while choosing where to install boot loader I left the default, it was my hard disk name in general not a specific sda or something like that. everything was fine and after rebooting again windows start up logo appeared.
Ubuntu 13.10 seemed to install just fine from the install DVD, operated it for some hours and shut down. Next day on start up it booted straight to Windows 8.1. No GRUB screen appeared at start up from which to choose Ubuntu.
What needs to be done to get the GRUB to appear and be able to select either Ubuntu 13.10 or Windows 8.1?
I have dual boot configured with Windows 7 (32bit) and Ubuntu 12.04(64bit). I installed Ubuntu after windows, now my windows is corrupt due to some virus and I need to reinstall it. Currently when I start my PC, grub loader comes up and I need to select Ubuntu or Windows.
I was wondering how can I install windows again and still have my Ubuntu install?
I installed Ubuntu 12.04 through Windows 7 via the Windows Installer and there's no GRUB to speak of. When I turn on my computer I'm presented with the Windows Boot Loader where I can select either Windows 7 or Ubuntu 12.04. I want to increase the size on my Ubuntu partition, and it seems the easiest way to do so is a complete re-install. What's the easiest way for me to uninstall Ubuntu?
