I have bought the above mentioned laptop with windows 8 pre-installed.
It has following partitions.
Windows boots only in UEFI mode. As alternate, legacy bios option also available.
I tried to boot Kubuntu amd64 12.04 from DVD drive. it failed in UEFI mode. But booted in legacy bios mode.
Secure boot is disabled in BIOS.
I would like to dual boot Ubuntu/Kubuntu with out affecting windows working.
1) How to shrink windows partition in the new GPT mode and make new partitions?
2) Whether installation of Kubuntu be done from bios boot and booted normally using UEFI mode after installation?
3)Where to install boot sector?
