From LinuxBSDos.com.Hispalinux (in Spanish), a representative organization for Linux users in Spain, has lodged a complaint against Microsoft to the European Commission, the European Union’s executive body.
The Linux Foundation just announced that they have found a solution for the new BIOS of the upcoming Windows 8 PC. In short, if you are to purchase a Windows 8 PC in the near future, you will be able to install your favorite Linux distro on it.
It has never been a problem to install Linux alongside with Windows on store-bought Windows computers.
Soon after I got my paws on a Windows 8 Pro installation DVD, I began what I thought would be a simple process of setting up a dual-boot system between it and Ubuntu 12.10 Desktop on an SSD. The SSD is a 2.5″ 128 GB unit from OCZ Technology Group, Inc., which I have already used to dual-boot Windows 7 and older versions of Ubuntu.
"Hispalinux, a Spanish association representing Linux users and developers, has filed an EU complaint against Windows 8s UEFI Secure Boot, calling it a de facto technological jail for computer booting systems.
I just bought an HP desktop, p6-2326s, which has windows 8 installed. I have tried booting a Ubuntu live disc but the machine won't boot it. When I bring up the UEFI boot menu it offers a selection of UEFI BOOT SOURCES, windows boot manager, dvd drive, IP4 Ethernet controller, or IP6 Ethernet controller.
So I just recently built a new computer and I have Windows 8 running on it, bios is set to UEFI, and Secure Boot is off. Windows 8 runs perfectly on it. Well with the new version of Ubuntu out, I thought I would give it a try in a dual boot on my new system. I have a separate hard drive just for Ubuntu, however I can't even get an installer to load to let me install it!
Hello I want to install Ubuntu 12.10 on an UEFI machine with manual partitioning.
Do I have to disable "Secure Boot"?
Do I have to create a 2nd ESP (EFI System Partition) for Ubuntu?
Do I have to give it the boot flag?
Do I have to set mount point /boot/efi?
Do I have to install grub on /dev/sda?
I am used to BIOS installation where:
