    You have to use Linux format for Linux systems. NTFS does not support Linux ownership & permissions.
    And Windows does not even let you create Linux file systems.

    Examples of installs, versions are not critical as process is the same, and screens have only minor changes, mostly graphics not functions.

    I installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS by creating three partitions but I still get the same problem. I download the boot repair and tried to make Windows 8 boot by default but now I see 2 windows 8 options in boot manager on dev sda1 and dev sda2

    Boot repair copies the boot files from the 100MB hidden boot/repair partition to the main partition as a backup. But then grub finds both sets of boot files & will let you boot from either.

    What problem?

    If black screen have you added nomodeset to linux line in grub?

    Hey oldfred,

    Thanks for all your help and staying along with me. I found the problem to this whole mess. It was my webcam which for some reason wasnt getting detected properly. As I took it out the windows unknown device error went away and when i restarted the computer it was fast as ususal and ubuntu detected mouse right away. Still I have to find a way to solve this mystery but i guess that isnt part of Ubuntu forums anymore. Anyways thanks for all your help.

    Thanks,

    Gurinder Hans

    Glad you got system working.

    I have seen one or two threads on web cam issues. You can search forum or post new thread with your exact model and they will ask for some info from lsusb after you plug it in. I do not have webcam so do not know details. It may be some models do not work?

    See my signature. We have to have a temporary work around as forum was recently updated and do not have the plug-in for solved working yet. You have to edit first post which normally is closed after a day or so.
