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 downloaded ubuntu 13.10 server image from ubuntu website and try to install in on my server. Server connected with restricted network, need to enter firewall authentication for getting internet access.

I have a new Dell XPS 15 P31F, but when I try to install Ubuntu on it, the installer is unable to properly detect the Windows 8 file system on the laptop. I want to install Ubuntu alongside Windows 8 preferably, though I'd also take installing it by itself and keeping my recovery partitions.
When I try to run the installer, the error I get is "No root filesystem detected.
I would like to know how the installer, and in particular the guided partitioning for Ubuntu Server 12.04 works under the hood. I'm not interested in documentation, I want to check out the real scripts and the logic in them.
How do you recommend I dig into this? Where on the ISO are these parts located?
I don't know what the installer for Ubuntu is called, or how it is configured.
