    Re: UEFI 12.04_AMD64 - Win7 dual boot problems

    I am in the process of building a new box, and you guys are exquisitely heightening my anxiety about the whole process, lol!

    I had no idea this whole UEFI "innovation" was going to be such a can of worms. Well, yes I did, deep, deep in my subconscious, but I didn't want to admit it to myself in my waking life. I can at least thank you for ripping off the Band-Aid quickly.

    With the new 2TB HDs and beyond they grew out of their jacked and we needed something new (which made things more complex).

    Now that you are aware of the problem its not half as bad. I knew no fear and obliviously installed on a system with all of my data on it. I was tricked into a false sense of security because the previous zillion times it worked like a charm. That's the time you get nipped in the butt.
    To fail to prepare is to prepare to fail.

    You don't necessarily need to dual boot Windows and Linux on UEFI. Follow the guide http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PEou2dIcMSE to convert your UEFI to MBR-BIOS without loss of data. Or read about it here: http://commandlinewani.blogspot.com/...sony-vaio.html

    Me no understand. Do need dual boot. HD was already MBR-BIOS, but only the boot sequence was UEFI.
