I did an upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 8 Pro RTM by doing a clean install of Windows 8. I kept no programs or settings. I have installed absolutely nothing except the Boot Camp drivers I need since I'm running Windows 8 on a partition on my MacBook Pro. The partition is 201 GB and of that 201 GB only 68 GB is currently free. As I said before, I did not install anything else. Is this normal?
Just acquired a new laptop, Gateway NV, i5-430, 4GB, 500GB HD, Intel GMA, and, of course, Windows 7. I wish to install openSUSE (as I have on my other laptops and boxes, with Windows/XP and (sigh..) one Vista). No problems with partitoning any of them, but I have not partitioned a Windows 7 HD.
I do wish to keep Windows 7, but SUSE has become my primary OS.

Trying to install directly from a USB (ubuntu doesn't see my windows 7 and thus I do not have the install alongside windows option).
Shrinking my C: drive using windows disk-managment and leaving it unallo
I installed Ubuntu 12.04.1 on my laptop. I knew that installing using the option install alongside windows 8 will screwup windows's bootloader. But I ended up installing it in that way because I was not paying any attention.
So now I have a GRUB, a working ubuntu and a broken windows 8. I dont have a windows 8 installation disk as it came preinstalled. Is there a way to repair windows bootloade?
When I try to install ubuntu 13.04 off a live usb, I do not see the option to install alongside windows 8. The version of windows 8 I have is one I upgraded from windows 7, so it uses bios. I used to be able to install ubuntu 12.04 and 12.10 when I had windows 7 installed. When I upgraded form windows 7 to 8 I had an install of 12.10.
