    What is important is that you install Ubuntu in the same mode as Windows either UEFI or BIOS.
    And if two drives use Something Else.

    Yes thanks I will look for UEFI or BIOS. I'm planning on reading each of the how-tos you've listed carefully before attempting the install.

    Hi Rawlins02,

    My machine is a work machine (as you may have gathered from my earlier posts) and I am a bit reluctant to scratch around too much in case it gets FUBAR'd (and with Windows that is all too possible).

    For the time being I have left it as it is. On startup I press enter to get to the "boot" menu, then F12 to select the boot menu, then select ubuntu from this menu and "good to go".

    It's a nuisance, but for now it works and since I only do this to run a backup every morning, it's no big deal. The whole "business" takes me about 5 minutes (10 max.) and I can shutdown and reboot Windows.

    At work (because of the restrictive policies) I am forced to use Windows, so the "dual boot" is only so I can run a proper back-up.

    When I have a bit of time, I will read through all of the documents again and try and fix it.

    I think it is not difficult to get it right the first time, the problem is that I simply did an external USB install as I have always done it (and I have done a large number of these), but with a UEFI set up that does not work in the same way...

    I am sure with a bit of care you will get it to work!

    I have been trying different methods to make stable 'UEFI and BIOS' Ubuntu systems for USB pendrives. The current version looks very promising See this link

    A new and so far successful attempt to create a stable portable system, that works in UEFI and BIOS mode
