Got a hardware question that's driving me nuts (And that's a short drive!)
I picked up a used Toshiba Satellite P305D-S8829 running Windows 7. As long as I just Windows, it runs fine.
However, when I run Ubuntu 12.10 off of CD (Or any OS off of CD or USB stick), that runs great. But when I shut the machine down and try to run Windows again, it fails to load. I try to run it in Safe Mode, run start up diagnostics to fix the problem (and it comes up as Boot corrupted), and ultimately have to revert back to System Restore before Windows will load again.
This is frustrating, since I realize that the hard drive doesn't get used when I run from CD or USB stick, just the CD/DVD/USB stick and memory. What could the problem be?
