This is on a new system about a month old. Dell XPS 8500. Windows 8. 8gigs of ram, ATI 7570. Trying to dual boot of course, but everything I have tried so far does not work. The live Ubuntu CD dose not recognize that I have another operating system win8. I have gone into the bios, and turned of fast boot, I have tried installing in legacy mode, meaning turning off UEFI. Tried installing in UEFI mode. Yes I have made another partition to install Ubuntu on which is fine. I can install Ubuntu on that partition, but I do not want to have to go into the bios every time I want to boot into windows.
