I'm also having this issue but haven't had any luck trying to fix it. I've got into my BIOS and enabled the UEFI Boot option but that didn't work. I'm using an ASUS U47A Laptop with 15.04 Ubuntu.

You should be able to dual boot. Did you leave fast boot in UEFI on. That often is the major issue, as booting Windows is required to be fast per Microsoft. And then vendors rely on Windows menu entry to get into UEFI. But when Windows does not work? And did you leave fast startup in Windows on? You may be able to directly get into UEFI with full power ...

As Arch user said in the comments, the most straightforward way to write a bootable ISO to an USB drive is to dd the image to the drive. First triple-check to which block device your USB drive is currently mapped to: lsblk Than dd the image to the USB drive. For example if your USB drive happens to be mapped to /dev/sdb: sudo dd if=/path/to/image ...

I found what maybe a solution to the issue at http://positon.org/lenovo-thinkpad-bios-update-with-linux-and-usb You should use a little script named geteltorito to get the .img from the iso and simply plop it on the drive. cd /tmp/ wget http://userpages.uni-koblenz.de/~krienke/ftp/noarch/geteltorito/geteltorito chmod +x geteltorito ./geteltorito -o ...

Insert the Live DVD, choose "Try Ubuntu" and you'll know whether Ubuntu works or not. All the other answers are make-belief. Low quality queue reviewers: That's it!

It's a hardware problem, but likely a very simple one. Check your Fn key isn't stuck down, which on an Acer Aspire laptop would change the behavior of the letters UIOPJKLM, F1-F12, and the arrow keys. Other compact laptops (those with no separate numberpad) can have similar issues.

You can't change what your BIOS does. For the few seconds between grub and the time X11 takes over, plymouth displays a splash screen. You can customize it by taking the files in /lib/plymouth/themes/ubuntu-logo/ and copying them to another directory, modifying ubuntu-logo.plymouth to specify another ImageDir and putting your own .png image there, then use ...

I would recommend using GParted since you will have a visual cue of what is going on. In GParted, you will have list of partitions on a particular disk. You can make your preferred changes to a disk or partition and apply those changes when done. I read your other question and it seems there might be a problem with the bootable USB you created. If you have ...

If you successfully update the BIOS, result will be the same what ever way you choose, just follow the instructions. Don't worry and upgrade it from Windows. BIOS is loaded before operating system and it is an independent software. About the compatibility, if you made any changes from default BIOS setup, you should make notes, so you can make the same ...

I thoroughly disagree. I recently installed Windows 10 Pro Technical Preview, build 10158, and went on to reinstall GRUB, and it works fine. I am dual booting Arch Linux and Windows 10. os-prober certainly detects Windows. Though I am not sure if these are necessary, but mount you Windows 10 partition (/dev/sdxZ) before os-prober. Install Grub Customizer ...

Thanks to Organic Marble and Thomas W. for helping me solve this. Apparently Grub doesn't support the Windows 10 Technical Preview so you have to add the grub menu entry manually. Open /etc/grub.d/40_custom as root with gedit or another text editor. Then you have to add an entry at the end of the file. Mine looked like this. 'Windows 10 Technical ...
