There can be only 4 primary partitions, but there can be many more logical partitions.

One of those max. 4 primary partitions can be an extended partition which in turn can hold up to 16 logical partitions. So in total you can create up to 19 usable partitions on a drive with an MBR partition table. If you choose “something else“ as installation type, the partition manager of the Ubuntu installer lets you choose between creating primary or ...

Fedora and Windows install a file called \EFI\BOOT\BOOTx64.EFI (x64 is the architecture and can be something like ARM too) in the EFI System Partition (ESP) which allows to boot an application or operating system when the NVRAM entries (storage on the mainboard) to boot a certain OS are not available or missing. Ubuntu currently doesn't provide such a file, ...

GRUB is made up of two parts, a small bootloader that goes into the boot loader (probably MBR, but don't know for sure with your system), and another section with the menu that goes into the system's /boot/grub directory. The bootloader must know where the other section is located. So, you have two grub menus: one in your Debian installation (which is the ...

Yes, definitely. Rule of thumb: first Windows, then Linux. Windows installers take (almost) no care of existing operating systems on your machine. If you installed Ubuntu first and then ran the Windows 8.1 installer, its routines would just overwrite any boot manager (The one where you choose which OS to boot). Then you can choose to use Win8 on startup, ...

The short answer You can create a bootx64.efi binary from within the Ubuntu live media with grub-mkimage and write a custom grub.cfg to chainload the loaders you wan't to boot and copy both files to the EFI System Partition (ESP) into the directory \EFI\BOOT\. If you don't know your way around in the terminal, the script available in the following section ...

You can not, simply because they're not running the same kernel (core). Windows and Ubuntu have very little in common. You can try to install VirtualBox on Ubuntu, so that you don't have to reboot your computer if you do want to use Windows. For this to work, you need to install Windows inside a virtual machine, so you will need the installation disc (or ...

Probably, your problem is orginated from BIOS preferences. Go to BIOS and do the followings: Go to BOOT label Replace Legacy BIOS with UEFI Save and Exit After you did these, I think you can do dual boot easily.

I run both dual-boot and VirtualBox VMs. So far as Windows 8 in a VM all I recall needing to do is specify either Windows 7 or Other Windows as the machine type when I set up the machine, and then I connected the .iso file from my Microsoft Volume license download to the CD drive. For resources I use 1-2 CPUs, 2G RAM, 25G HD. I had no problem. I have done ...
