After a lot of trouble with the UEFI-BIOS, my new ASUS 2220, running Windows 8, accepted booting from a live-USB stick with Ubuntu 12.04 on it. Even better: installation of Ubuntu ran without any problem. I wanted to try to make a dual-boot system, just like I had on a equally new laptop.Two partitions of 160 Gig were proposed and accepted.
However, there is no option to choose Ubuntu, the system is stubbornly sending me to Windows. Whatever I try, no way.
I suspect that it has something to do with Win8. On the laptop I tried to do the same after doing the upgrade to Win8, but had to completely reinstall Win7. I tried to find an answer, but the combination Win8 and Ubuntu does not come forward.
Help! Where to look, how to correct this?
Extra question: what does GRUB mean or do? seems to be important, but I can't find the link.
Thanks a lot in advance.
