I had recently bought a Dell Inspiron 7520 laptop , Which was pre-loaded with windows 8. I wanted to set up dual boot with Ubuntu 12.10 . I am having the following issues . Any help will be really appreciated .
1) I was not able to start ubutu 12.10 live CD in UEFI mode. I am not able to find any bios setting to do so . The bios firmware version , thats been loaded with the laptopn is A07.
2) As a result , I have to install ubuntu in legacy mode , which naturally does not detect the windows 8 installation . After installing Ubuntu , I tried using boot-repair to convert the legacy installation to UEFI mode . But the boot-repair failed with the following error . http://paste.ubuntu.com/1525014/
3) I am not sure , how to go ahead from here. Any help will be really appreciated .
