Hello, I am using Ubuntu 13.10 as my primary (and only) OS, and I need to use Windows 8.1 (not that I want to but it is work related).
How can I dual-boot Ubuntu (without deleting my current installation) and Windows 8.1
My motherboard has UEFI and ubuntu is installed in UEFI Mode (with Secure Boot and everything)...now in the past when I needed well...Windows I had BIOS and MBR now it seems that MBR is gone and I have GPT.
How to dual boot Windows and ubuntu in GPT UEFI dual boot? How to completely remove Windows after I dont need it anymore without affecting ubuntu?

Would it be simpler to just use a virtual machine?? My Computer has Intel VT-x and VT-d

Instead of dualboot just install in VirtualBox, your specs would be able to run VB just fine.
