View Full Version : [ubuntu] Side-by-side (dual boot) install Ubuntu on Windows 7 ultimate

November 4th, 2013, 06:34 PM

I attempted to install Ubuntu 12.04-3 LTS 64 bit on Alienware 14 laptop.

Steps followed:

1. Used unetbootin to create bootable flash drive.
2. Booted and installed using the boot drive. Selected side-by-side installation and gave Ubuntu 50Gig space
3. Rebooted using flash drive and followed steps for boot-repair.
4. Grub seems to work and shows numerous choices at startup. None of them work.

Thanks in advance for any ideas/suggestions.
