I just tried to install Ubuntu (linux secure 12.10 64 bit) with a dual boot with windows 8. I then restarted and ran boot-repair in "try Ubuntu" and this is what i got:
sudo chroot "/mnt/boot-sav/sda6" dpkg --configure -a sudo chroot "/mnt/boot-sav/sda6" apt-get install -fy sudo chroot "/mnt/boot-sav/sda6" apt-get purge -y --force-yes grub*-common shim-signed linux-signed*
When I start my computer it just goes straight into Windows 8. If I press
esc right away i can get the boot options and go into the USB and can either "try ubuntu" or "install". I've been at this for hours but i'm a Linux newbie and Windows 8 is ridiculous.
