I just purchased an Acer E1-571-6837 laptop that came with Windows 8 pre-installed. I would like to have a dual boot system with Ubuntu 12.04.3. However, after installing Ubuntu with the LiveCD, the laptop goes straight to Windows without the option of loading Ubuntu.
I tried fixing this twice using boot-loader on the LiveCD, but I still can't load Ubuntu.
When I boot into Windows 7, the time maybe for example set to 3:04 pm. The real time being 11:04 am. Then I reboot and go into Ubuntu and the time is set to 7:04 am. With the same date in both. I go into BIOS and Windows syncs it with the time it believes it is so it'll be set to 3:04 pm. I've tried changing them all to the right time. Turning off online sync with both.
EDIT: I managed to boot into Windows 8 by going to BIOS settings and changing the boot order to Windows Boot Manager first. The problem with that is I have to go into bios settings each time. That is a hassle. There should be some other way to boot into it right?
Hello. This is my first time installing a linux distro on my computer. It is the Lenovo G500.
recently my laptop screen broke, so i was forced to use a led tv as monitor meanwhile, the computer starts normally, but for some reason the BIOS date and time setting are off, i know because many of my windows app use that time instead of the one i provide to the windows config, more so im getting constant domain certificate issues as the date of those is different from that in the BIOS.
So I'm having the most frustrating time trying to figure this out. In all the years of using PCs this is by far the most odd thing I have ever encountered. Just like the thread title says when I get into the bios I just get kicked back out as if someone hit the exit button and just boots into Windows.
