I have a new Pavilion dm1 with pre-installed Win 8, and i want to install Ubuntu 12 as a dual boot option. I need a larger partition for Ubuntu than WUBI will allow.
I have downloaded 12.10 and installed onto a USB drive. I changed bios on the laptop to allow booting from USB I enabled legacy boot I resized the partitions using the auto tool
I was able to go through the entire installation process. When I rebooted the machine, there was no GRUB screen nor any option to choose Ubuntu. Machine booted to Win 8.
I tried to reinstall. Installation software did see Ubuntu and gave me the option to erase Ubuntu and reinstall- which I chose. Same issue.
There seems to be a lot of conflicting information on how to set up Ubuntu on Win8.
thanks for any help getting this up.
