Before anyone bash/trolls me let me admit first that I'm a total noob to Linux. I was looking into getting into it but apparently I jumped into the deep end of a foreign pool so to speak. I will need help as if I were 5. Please don't shun me off I'm really trying to learn my way around Linux.
I do offer this information:
Samsung NP300E5C Laptop http://paste.ubuntu.com/7360035/
The story: I had windows 7 and 8 on an internal HDD. Installed Ubuntu & Zorin to an external.
I can't: access BIOS, boot from CD, boot to my internal (windows) HDD
I can: Boot Ubuntu, Boot Zorin, Have access to a different windows PC
Short term Goal:
Fix / gain access to windows, OR
Flash my BIOS so that I may boot from CD or flash drive (I'd prefer the first and I can't use flashrom for a laptop)
END Goal: Four different OS's total on 2 different HDDs
Dual boot Windows 7 & 8 (bootloader, menu, OS selector... whatever) on my internal hard drive
Dual boot Ubuntu (non-live) and Zorin (also non-live) on an external hard drive
All OS's falling under one Windows loader list
If there is anything I'm missing that can help anyone figure out how please let me know.
Thanks in advanced to anyone who helps.
