    Yann wanted your pastebin link that running the BootInfo report gives you. So we can confirm your final working configuration.

    You posted the link to the French version of Boot-Repair.
    For info on UEFI boot install & repair:

    Please run Boot-Repair --> Create BootInfo, and tell us the URL that will appear (something like paste.ubuntu.com/1234567 )

    (ça aurait été plus facile de demander de l'aide sur le forum ubuntu-fr )

    Thanks for the info guys. I will use it to insatll Xubuntu on my son's new Toshiba laptop. I just want to go on record that Windows 8 is probably the most evil one yet. UEFI/Secure Boot seems merely like a way to make opensource people's lives more difficult.

    Re: Ubuntu 12.10 dualboot windows 8

    Hi guys,

    I just bought a laptop for my mother-in-law and it came with Windows 8. I tried to get to the Bios to change the boot sequence to CD-ROM, but all I saw was the option for turning on/off secure Boot. There was no option for booting from CD-ROM. Will I be able to boot from CD-ROM if I turn the secure boot off then restart the computer? My intention is to remove Windows 8 completely and install Linux on this computer, if I can boot from Ubuntu Live disk.

    most pcs should already have booting cd-rom above hdd so turning off uefi should be fine.
    If it doesn't boot after turning it on try searching your bios for something like: boot priority or boot order and put your cd-rom drive to the top of the list
