Ubuntu Dual Boot Window 7 with two separate hard disks in one machine
For years now I've been using XP along Ubuntu on two separate hard drives without any problem.
Now, installing a Win 7 machine with two separate hard drives again, I am not capable of successfully installing Ubuntu 11.04 along with it.
Here's what happens:
- install W7 - no problem
- install Ubuntu 11.04 - seemingly no problem either (via LIVE-CD)
- Reboot will show the GRUB menu
- W7 boots properly
- Ubuntu shows a messed up screen, Login accepted, but Ubuntu doesn't start
I repeated the procedure with Linux Mint 11 - same same :(
So I checked wit Live-CDs (Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Knoppix, Fedora). All live systems start properly, but acces to all hard drives and thumb drives is prohibited.
Is this a preview to a supposedly upcoming W8 feature preventing a dual boot machine or accessing the file system with Live CDs?
I do depend on both OS - so I'd really like to get this working.
