    Ubuntu can;t load after win8 install

    Hi,


    My laptop had winxp that was dual booting with ubuntu 12.10.

    Installed win 8 Pro successfully, now win xp can't load. That's OK as I plan to junk it.

    I still want ubuntu but it won;t load either. the wubildr.mbr in c:/ is there.

    Have a C drive spilt into 3 parts: C/D/E. Ubuntu is on E.

    The "ubuntu-gnome-12.10-desktop-i386" iso installer file is on E.

    What's the best way to get ubuntu to work? Should I just re-installed the iso file from E drive or somehow point Ubuntu to the correct file to load? How is that done?

    Unlike with Win7, Win8 will NOT dual-boot with XP. MS removed support for that just like they removed support for XPDM video drivers (allowing you to use XP drivers in Win7).
    Ubuntu 14.04, Mint 17; MS Win 8.1.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
