Ok, so I need a little advice.
My wonderful wife just bought me an early Christmas present, an ASUS K55A notebook. (I'm a lucky guy, this is my first ever NEW computer).
It comes with windows 8 pre-insalled so normally I would just wipe windows and install ubuntu, I have been using ubuntu since Fiesty Fawn came out and used it almost exclusively since hardy heron . However, on this occasion I would like to keep windows 8 and dual boot.
So, I did what i always do, and popped in an ubuntu CD and this time installed it along side windows. All seemed to go very smoothly, so when prompted I popped out the disk and restarted only to be met with a message something like "no OS found" I can't remember the wording, sorry.
It reminds me of the time I once ruined GRUB. lol
So I was wondering if anybody else has tried ubuntu along side W8, and did you have any troubles? or was it a success? did you have trouble then fiure it out?
The only thing I can think of right now is that windows was split into 2 parts, OS, and storage.... could it be that ubuntu needs to be installed on one rather than the other?
anyway, at the moment I am running the reset function on the new computer to put it back to factory pre-set, Then I can start over again once I have armed myself with knowledge.
Thanks for reading?
P.S I almost forgot to say It was 12.04
