After that I would load several flavors of Linux - and as long as you use GRUB - and put it in the Master Boot Sector where the Master Boot Record May I suggest you to try the Ubuntu forum? Use RAW space on the hard drive. I've had Ubuntu alongside my Windows for quite sometime now. https://www.cnet.com/forums/discussions/dual-boot-issue-please-help-236304/

This action overwrites the boot sector. As I have important data in Ubuntu partition I don't want to experiment my own loosing data. What I do is to remove that empty partition so I have free and open unpartitioned space so most Linux installers will see it and use that empty space. He was looking for practical ways to solve that particular issue, and there were some, it only depended on getting slightly more familiar with the intuitive tools available, if they didn't

Installation and configuration problems are usually the fault of the person doing them. Rename the "refind" folder "boot."5. A possible alternative to multi-booting is virtualization, where a hypervisor is used to host one or more virtual machines running guest operating systems. A multi-boot configuration allows a user to use all of this software on one computer.

I said it was GRUB2 (I'm not sure if it is), and pointed it to the part that said Linux. Exactly, that's it.First try: Boot RepairThe first thing you can do is using Boot Repair to reinstall grub with all the options you need. Thank You! I can't see it as a problem when the average user doesn't want to become a kernel engineer (just a metaphor, I know you didn't say so).

I suggest looking over those instructions again. OsasAugust 26, 2016 at 8:42 am Reply Hi deshack,This is my problem and I don't know if it's similar to yours. Be slow and thorough. In this case a multi-booting boot loader is necessary.

  • What about the imaging question?
  • Not the answer you're looking for?
  • Darth Vader says “There’ll be no one to stop us this time” - what happened last time?
  • Yes, my password is: Forgot your password?
  • Before then, it seems very complex.

The only thing I had to change was the install command. If I select wind7 it is loading wind correctly and working fine.

I wanted to dual boot because many of my games don't have OpenGL support, only DirectX. check my blog It is using Linux and Windows. If you load Windoze in the 1st gig of diskspace and hold it to that - you can create another partition directly in the next gig of the first 2 gigs It lets you download and "install" many distributions into flash drives, so that you can boot from them.

I think I ran into that same situation the first time. Jan 26, 2015 at 8:34 pm Bryan saysWorked like a charm, thanks Brian!

The space I want to install is already raw. All rights reserved.Make Tech Easier is a member of the Uqnic Network. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for your help, but this experience really makes me wonder if FOSS is the future of computer software or not.

I'm using an MSI Ge60 2PC Apache It has 1 SSH for windows system, 1 SATA for my files, 1 SSD for Kubuntu. But it says like the following :sudo /Users/arifin/Downloads/refind-bin-0.8.7/install.sh ShimSource is none Installing rEFInd on OS X…. Any help is appreciated, thank you. Once I change it to primary, can I simply apply that image to it and have it still work properly?

They loved it. It worked previously, now only it is giving problem. With the forums I've been on, if your thread is off of the main page, it will never get answered. have a peek at these guys It automatically made it extended.
