i try to set up my dual boot system with Windows 8 (SSD), so i installed ubuntu 14.04 on an external HDD with USB 3.0.
I already have lots of files on this HDD (NTFS-Format) which i dont want to remove. This is why i added partitions by myself and since i am an absolute linux beginner i have no idea if it was enough to just install ubuntu on ext4 + swap.
Long story short: When i set the bios to boot from this HDD, nothing but a blinking cursor is to see.
Did i miss something within the setup? How do i make the bios recognize the GRUB within Ubuntu?
Thanks for your time guys
