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.
I have a Toshiba Satellite p50 with pre-installed Windows 8.1. I installed Ubuntu 14.04 and the UEFI dual-boot worked fine for some time. However, I realized that every time I make any change in the BIOS, Grub fails to load and I cannot boot Ubuntu (Windows loads normally).
First time it failed was after a BIOS upgrade, so I re-installed Ubuntu and dual boot worked fine again.
