    With new systems, you have both UEFI & BIOS. And how you boot installer is how it installs. But you cannot easily dual boot unless both are UEFI or both are BIOS. You only can then dual boot by going into UEFI/BIOS and turn it on or off if both are not same mode.

    Best to see details.
    Post the link to the BootInfo report that this creates. Is part of Boot-Repair:

    You can repair many boot issues with this or 'Create BootInfo' report (Other Options) & post the link it creates, so we can see your exact configuration and diagnose advanced problems.

    Thanks, boot-repair fixed the uefi problems on 13.04. (was not yet available in 13.10)

    Still it hangs at: loading initial ramdisk
    But not if I boot Win8 and go back.
    Any ideas? I've updated Nvidia drivers without success.
    Thanks

    I do not know about RAMdisks? Are you mounting something at boot time via fdisk? Or is this related to Intel SRT?
