I've got an older laptop (HP G62) that has Windows 8 as it's primary OS and I want to dual-boot it with Lubuntu. It does NOT come with Secure boot nor does it come with UEFI.
I've been looking at this guide (http://www.liberiangeek.net/2012/10/dual-booting-windows-7-and-ubuntu-12-10-quantal-quetzal/) and it says that I need to:
Shrink the Windows partition
Create a primary ext4 partition (using the free space) with the mount point set to /
Create a swap (logical) partition
Note: For me, it would be 6GBs.
Choose the Lubuntu partition and click "Install Now"
I am 100% aware that the link that I provided does talk about Windows 7, BUT I have not seen any valid guide on how to dual-boot Lubuntu with Windows 8 on a laptop or PC without UEFI.
I have two questions:
Will GRUB replace my Windows 8 boot loader?
Should I make the main partition (/) primary?
I know this guide is for Ubuntu, but since they're pretty much the same I though this guide would work for Lubuntu users as well.
