http://askubuntu.com – I've done a lot of searching for an explanation to this. I have a new computer with windows 8 pre-installed. this was my procedure; partition hard drive from windows 8 to make room for ubuntu burn ubuntu 12.04.2 64bit (this should have uefi support) to CD disable secure boot boot from cd in uefi mode now i get the normal installation interface however then i get the option to either erase hard disk and install ubuntu or manuallly partition the drive, but no option to install ubuntu alongside windows 8 as win8 has not been detected. Would it be alright to just manually partition the drive des (HowTos)
