I installed Kubuntu onto a 32 Gb flash drive. I used these instructions: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/In.../UEFI-and-BIOS I just want it to boot on my UEFI computer (Surface Pro 2) so did just the first part for UEFI. Grub is installed on the flash, as was selected during installation, BUT when I try to boot Windows without the flash drive I get a grub recovery(?) screen.
I have Kubuntu 14.04 & Windows 7. I would like to add another Kubuntu 14.04.
Please, do you know if I just need to boot from a flash drive and to install the new Kubuntu on the free space? Or do I have to pay attention (in a way or in another?) to a swap or anything else?
I've been dual-booting Kubuntu and Windows 7 for a couple of weeks and I've been able to boot into Kubuntu just fine until this afternoon. Now when I choose Kubuntu's entry, instead of the regular bootloader I get the grub prompt screen saying "Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported.", etc.
Hey all, go easy on me if I'm making a noob mistake.
I am dual booting Win7/Kubuntu 12.10 using Grub2. All on a single drive, all partitions seem to be correct, using the 64bit version. I can boot from the USB key just fine but not from the disk after selecting Kubuntu from Grub.
After installing off of a live cd (via USB) grub was not working so I ran boot-repair selecting recommended fixes.
This is my First post and I really hope it will be helpful.
Basically the process is to disable secure boot in the bios and then convert the drive from GPT to MBR as this will allow you to create multiple partitions. Note: you might want to try with a kubuntu livecd first and attempt to perform the GPT to MBR conversion as the way I did it was by performing the steps below.
Ok I've got a Haswell i5, Gigabyte GA-Z87-HD3 and a Radeon HD 7790. I currently have a Grub2 triple boot: Opensuse 12.3 (which I use) Kubuntu 13.04 and Mint 15 Kde. The Kubuntu installation got messed up trying to install the proprietary drivers, but the other two installations are running fine and all three installed OK.
