Luke, I used this to help me set up a dual boot with the previous ver of Ubuntu and Win 7: http://www.linuxbsdos.com/2014/02/01/dual-boot-windows-8-or-windows-7-and-ubuntu-13-10-with-ubuntu-on-a-btrfs-filesystem/ I used Ext4 rather than btrfs but it explains the concepts more clearly.

Don't ever do that again, installing Ubuntu right from the boot menu. The best way to install Ubuntu in a dual-boot configuration with Windows is to boot into the live session with your Ubuntu DVD or USB (choose Try Ubuntu instead of Install Ubuntu from the boot menu). Once you are in the live session, all you have to do is to make sure you have an Internet ...

NTFS doesn't support more than 3 primary partitions. Use software like "EaseUs Partition manager" and check for the "Partition type". If you have more than 3 primary make any one (other than windows installed drive) to logical by right clicking on the drive. Reboot the system and install ubuntu. This worked for me.

It shouldn't pose any real threat IF you do it right. As long as you use a separate partition for everything, and don't share a boot partition, you can get it working fine, but unless you are quite confident I would try it in a Virtualbox first.

You should use your startup cd/dvd to start an ubuntu live session, and then either install boot-repair and run it, or follow the detailed steps from here: Recovering GRUB after installing Windows 7?

Absolutely it should work. I was doing that ages for gaming purposes as well, although now with the Steam-Linux revolution I haven't booted Windows up for months. I had my OS partitions totally separate, as you intend to, and had no problems at all. There were no shared partitions. My swap partition is 36 GB, slightly more than twice my RAM (16 GB). The ...

I am probably repeating similar answers, but It should be possible as long as where your hibernation files are saved is separate from, as in your example Windows 7. (Windows 7 likes to take control of the partition, or disk it is on, so it is best to keep Ubuntu to it's own area anyway). I would test just a regular hibernation with a hard reset (or maybe ...

Virtual Machines does not have access to your ordinary graphics card, which means it will run the games on a "virtual" graphics card, with barely any 3D rendering capabilities.

I was wondering how well my video games would work on a Windows 7 virtual machine. Most likely not at all. Unless they are games like solitaire or minesweeper. Don't expect anything with somewhat advanced 3D graphics to work. Playing games is one of the biggest reasons people use dual-booting. What issues did you have with that? Dual-booting will ...

Dual boot is not a problem if UEFI is not a problem. To check if UEFI is a problem, you can try liveUSB without installation first, if it can boot into liveUSB, probably with some configuration in BIOS to disable security boot and enable Legacy mode, it can install on your hard disk. I don't think you can brick your computer, UEFI will try to stop you from ...

Ubuntu 12.04 install has corrupted the Win7 boot loader(Usually it only corrupts the boot loader, not the whole OS partition). This happened to me too.

This will only repair the start-up files necessary for Win7 ...

Is the PC dual boot? OR, is Ubuntu 13.10 (or Windows 7) in a virtual container? Wild guess:: The last stages of creating a 'LiveUSB' needs a compatible kernel and boot files (from somewhere) and Startup Disk Creator writes these to the USB in privileged mode. This is NOT the just the standard 13.10 install, so anything could be wrong here ..

Based on my experience I found that if you have Windows/Ubuntu dual OS, it is always easier to use the windows boot loader instead of GRUB. You can install EasyBCD in windows and use it to manage the bootloader. It is a free software. If you cannot boot into your local windows right now, try Win PE in a bootable USB drive.

you might just have to save your data to a backup disc and reformat the drive windows was on. The Ubuntu installer cant read some windows and mac filesystems.

do not use disks to manage partitions. rather use gparted. install gparted from software center and use that to make your partitions. it will not generate errors. you can create an ext4 as well as an ntfs partition. ext4 is only accessible in ubuntu whereas ntfs will be accessible by both windows and ubuntu.

You've probably run into a rounding error -- the partitioning tool tried to align a partition to a 1MiB boundary and that ended up causing it to overlap with a preceding or following partition. The simplest way around this problem is to leave a small gap (~1MiB) before and/or after the partition you're creating.

From the above screenshot, it was clearly shown that your Ubuntu OS is installed in /dev/sda5 logical partition. So don't touch your extended partition while reinstalling your Windows.Just format your /dev/sda2 ntfs partition and reinstall Windows on it by choosing the custom option during Windows installation.

I have just posted an answer regarding the UEFI. Try to restart and boot to Bios. To enter Bios, its usually pressing F2,or F12 , or similar when you turn on the machine depends on your model. Go to Bios menus looking for the word UEFI and change it to legacy. See if that brings the boot screen.
