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.
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.
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.

The place to do this is no longer /etc/default/rcS but /etc/adjtime. Old howtos talked about setting UTC=no in /etc/default/rcS. This is no longer the place and the man page says as much.1.
