Re: 13.04 on Windows 8 - Prompts for reboot, ejects my CD tray, and does nothimg
What I did is I went into Windows and used diskmgmt.msc to resize the NTFS volume for space;
I shrunk it down by 60GB (500GB-60GB=440GB) and just did the install and selected Something Else..., made a partition for swap (2GB) and the rest for an ext4 for for Ubuntu with / being on that ext4 volume using that free 60GB of space I made in Windows. So my Xubuntu has 58GB and swap has 2GB. I installed the GRUB Bootloader on /dev/sda. I still have to press F10 and choose Windows to boot into Windows and Grub doesn't find Windows 8, but it works for me.
