    Ubuntu can;t load after win8 install

    Hi,


    My laptop had winxp that was dual booting with ubuntu 12.10.

    Installed win 8 Pro successfully, now win xp can't load. That's OK as I plan to junk it.

    I still want ubuntu but it won;t load either. the wubildr.mbr in c:/ is there.

    Have a C drive spilt into 3 parts: C/D/E. Ubuntu is on E.

    The "ubuntu-gnome-12.10-desktop-i386" iso installer file is on E.

    What's the best way to get ubuntu to work? Should I just re-installed the iso file from E drive or somehow point Ubuntu to the correct file to load? How is that done?

    Unlike with Win7, Win8 will NOT dual-boot with XP. MS removed support for that just like they removed support for XPDM video drivers (allowing you to use XP drivers in Win7).
    Ubuntu 16.04 Mate, Mint 18 Mate; MS Win 8.1, MS Win10 Pro.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
