http://askubuntu.com – I got a new DELL XPS 8500 with Windows 8. I understand that it has UEFI (as opposed to traditional boot-loading BIOS system). I installed Ubuntu 12.04 (not realizing that it doesn't work as well with the secure-load/uefi system). I partitioned my solid state drive so Windows was on one partition, and Ubuntu would be on a new one (sdb7). This always worked with my PREVIOUS computer... I had Windows XP on one partition and UbuntuStudio on a separate partition. Grub always gave me a boot menu. Here comes the problem: At first my computer wouldn't let me boot from the USB and with UEFI I can't (HowTos)
