I am not very good with Linux and EFI, but I wish to dual-boot Ubuntu and Pre Installed Windows 8 on my laptop. Windows 8 is definitely installed in EFI mode, and I boot ubuntu from my flash drive in EFI mode. I have been looking at the page explaining UEFI (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI) but it is all very confusing to me, as I am inexperienced with these things. I know how to partition my hard drive and everything, but according to the page, if I have windows 8 partitioned in an EFI partition, I can install ubuntu into the same partition and it will be installed in EFI mode? Excuse me if I'm wrong, but is this true? I cannot afford to mess up my laptop, as I only saved up enough money to buy 1. So can anyone offer me a simple, step by step explanation on how I can install ubuntu to dual-boot with pre-installed EFI windows 8 successfully? All I have seen is a "Figure it out yourself" and "Poke around in BIOS" tutorials with just snips of information.
Thank you, and I will appreciate any help I can get. -Ben
