View Full Version : [ubuntu] Installing Ubuntu on a 64 bit PC with windows 7 (32 Bit)

April 26th, 2015, 07:11 AM
I have a Sony Vaio, 64 bit laptop with 4 GB RAM.
Before installing windows, I created portions as 50GB NTFS for Windows 7, 200GB NTFS & rest unpartioned for Ubuntu.
Installed Windows 7, which went through without any trouble.
Next I tried to install Ubuntu, but it is not happening.
While booting the ubuntu instaler DVD is not recognised, same with installer USB. If I check that DVD / USB on any ither system, they are recognised.

What steps should I take to install Ubuntu. I tried 14.04 32 bit and 64 bit.

Recommend that you check your BIOS settings. The newer BIOS won't recognize the Ubuntu with out changing some settings.
