Good evening guys,
Device: Inspiron 17R SE 7720
I tried setting up my system for over a day by now.
I would like to install both Windows 8 and Ubuntu 12.10, but I couldn't get it how I want it by now.
When I try to install Ubuntu first it does not seem to work at all as Windows will overwrite the partitions from Ubuntu then.
However installing Windows 8 first results in Ubuntu not being able to locate any other OS on the device, so it does not realize that Windows 8 is already installed.
I could install it with the alternative option which does not clear the whole harddrive before installing, but I would like to know if there is a option to set it up so Ubuntu recognizes Windows 8 beforehand.
Secure Mode: Disabled
Load Legacy Option Rom: Enabled (which I set in order to boot from CD (Windows 8))
Boot List Option: UEFI (not really sure what this option changes as it justs shows/hides the menu keys "Add/Delete Boot Option")
In order to install Ubuntu I add a new boot option (USB) and select the file EFI/Boot/BOOTx64.EFI, this option is then displayed under the category "UEFI boot" in bootmanager.
