I have read several posts on this item but am getting nowhere.
I have a new Compaq with win 8 pre-installed and wish to install Ubuntu along side it.
I've tried installing Ubuntu 12.10 (64 bit) from a DVD and get the 'Windows Boot Manager - Windows failed to start' message in the dual boot screen.
I see the use of a flash card or usb is mentioned - would it be different from a dvd? If so, can any one advise how to do it?
