Not a Noob of WIndows,, just a new User of Ubuntu.. I want to use Ubuntu to Create An ANdroid ROM for my Mobile from source.. and i need like 100GB+ space for all the files.
Question 1 Installation and Partitioning
i have 2 hard disk on my HP dragon 9450 Laptop. 300GB each.
C Drive and D Drive.. C Drive has Windows 8 Installed. and is 230 GB Free. D Drive has all my documents/files etc.. Has 70GB Free (nothing to do with Installation)
I want to Partition my C Drive.. into C Drive 150GB and lets Say U Drive 150 GB
and Install Ubuntu on U Drive 150GB.. if I do this and Install Ubuntu 13.04.. will my Windows be affected.. will it be Gone or wt ?? From where shall I do the partitioning.. so that Ubuntu Installer can see it.. I use Windows Disk Management Tool
And also.. How do I recognize my exact Partition as Ubuntu does not show names.. it shows SDA etc when installing in Ubuntu..
WHen i use the Install next to WIndows 8 option in Ubuntu.. it does not let me SLIDE the SLider past 75GB .. which sometimes makes me think.. its talking about my D drive and will install their.
Neither does it show me the WIndows and Ubuntu Names so i know which side is which !!
Question 2 Ubuntu Boot Problems
I cannot boot Ubuntu.. i don't have gefi guei wteva that is on my laptop. my laptop is from 2008. but Ubuntu does not boot from USB. neither lets me Install. i started playing with the setting of F6 .. and i ticked.. noapic and nolapic i think its only then Ubuntu live boots.. but my CPU fan starts spinning like crazy all the time LiveUSB Ubuntu is running..
Regular temp is like 51 Degree C'.. it brings it to about 60 Degree C' what can i do regarding this..
