I just got a Lenovo IdeaPadU510 preinstalled with Windows8, and like many, am attempting to dual boot with 12.10
To recap what I have done so far:
-Allocated free space on HDD
-Went in to bios and disable "secure boot" and UEFI. (Would not allow to boot from liveUSB unelss I switched to Legacy mode)
-Manually partitioned / (root), /home, swap, and /boot, under the "Something Other" option.
My question is, do I really have to create a /boot partition in order to dual boot? Or do I tell it to boot from the windows8 EFI boot partition that already exists? When I hit 'install' on the four partitions mentioned above it says that I may encounter disk error unless I create some sort of OEM partition.
I have been following a few tutorials:
Yet none have been specific about this.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
