I've been using Ubuntu on a laptop which is now dead. I have a shiny new one which came with windows 8. I would like to put Ubuntu on it for dual boot. Ive been reading extensively about this, but what's worrying is the list of user comments after each article saying "Ok, I did all that and now something's gone horribly wrong..!". I had a look at WUBI but it seems that's out of date and about to disappear completely.
Is there / anyone making some GUI based software for computer illiterate dorks like me to dual-install Ubuntu nicely and easily, accounting for all the UEFI, Secure Boot, Compatibility mode, Grubs etc problems that seem to be stacked high under every forum I read? (And put the fear into me). Or, of course, point me in the direction of a fool-proof guide which works every time!
