I have two suggestions... Option #1: Separate ESPs Under EFI, the boot loader resides on "the" EFI System Partition (ESP). I put the word "the" in quotation marks because there's no rule that says you're limited to one ESP. If you create two ESPs on your hard disk, you can use one of them for your first installation and the second ESP for the second ...

If you have installed without Wubi.exe: At the grub prompt try these commands: set pager=1 ls Now, suppose the output of ls is: (hd0) (hd0,msdos2) (hd0,msdos1), in order to find the linux root filesystem run: ls (hd0,1)/ which should give you all the files/folders in / such as bin/ boot/ cdrom/ dev/ etc/ home/ lib/ etc. Once this is done continue ...

You should not (usually even can not) create any partitions for Ubuntu in Windows. Just give it a bit of unallocated space and the installer will set it up properly. Inside the Ubuntu installer, you (or the installer automatically) will create a root partition (format as ext4 and select: "Use as /") and a swap partition (format as linux-swap"). That is ...

Banking security is pretty sophisticated. Most of the available holes are on your end. For instance, storing your passwords for your banking site on your system is likely a bad idea unless you keep your computer in a vault. You might want to avoid banking over wireless (especially public wifi which isn't typically encrypted to the level available on private ...

Run the command sudo update-grub. If it still does not work try boot-repair. It will attempt to fix the problem, if it can't it will provide a link with all the information we need to further troubleshoot the issue.

You could only do this, to my knowledge, if you had bought a Mac with OS X already on it or obtained a copy of the OS illegally as I am pretty sure Apple has copyright laws against purchasing the OS off of the machine. Someone please correct me if I am mistaking about this. However yes, if you get a copy of any of these OSes and create either a bootable CD ...

The fact that GRUB starts, and can start Windows, means that GRUB is starting in BIOS/CSM/legacy mode. GRUB cannot switch boot modes (BIOS to EFI or EFI to BIOS), so GRUB must be trying to start Linux in BIOS/CSM/legacy mode, too. In other words, EFI support is not your issue. If you try messing with those settings in the firmware, or make EFI-related ...

I got the Dell XPS 13 (9343 model) from work, and first thing I did was wipe the disk, and install Ubuntu 14.04. I'm running the latest BIOS, A03. I did alot of tinkering to get the laptop booting. I discovered that the laptop will not work with UEFI booting. You need to disable secureboot, and boot the install media as a legacy device. Then perform a usual ...

Does your bank not have two-factor authentication? Most nowadays have a keypad you need a code from to access the banking. Other than that, man in the middle attacks are the main concern as far as I see it.

For information on installing Ubuntu in dual-boot with Windows 8 or 8.1 on an EFI-based system, see: Installing Ubuntu on a Pre-Installed Windows 8 (64-bit) System (UEFI Supported) The Ubuntu UEFI wiki My page on EFI-mode Linux installations Note that there's a lot of bad information out there relating to EFI-mode installations, so following random ...

The only thing that worked for me was installing boot-repair on a USB and booting from it. I found out that whenever I make a change in the BIOS and "Exit and save changes", I'd lose access to Ubuntu, looks like Windows "fixes" the boot and then I can't access GRUB.
