of course yes... it's like two systems running simultaneously.

it's not hard to setup and if you have enough ram and have a good CPU, you can't notice any slowness of a vbox guest OS. sometimes programs run much faster on Vbox

@Thallazar you can use vbox instead of a dualboot setup. It's much easier and efficient in every way(only if you have enough memory). I am also using vbox. i.imgur.com/3p3ZG66.jpg << kubuntu 14.10 X64 with 8GB ram, 3.5GB shared with windows guest

comment Linux Won't install from LIveUsb
unlikel windows, linux can be converted between EFI mode and MBR mode by just executing some commands while running the OS.so don''t get bothered with the linux installation.just install windows correctly... as I understood, your USB disk is not EFI-capable...please make sure you use "GPT PARTITION SCHEME FOR UEFI COMPUTERS" parameter while creating it.other settings (except device) will be generated automatically.

comment Linux Won't install from LIveUsb
if the EFI firmware detects no efi capable boot medium it will fallback to compatible mode and try a MBR capable device, that's why I recommended to turn off compatible mode so you will notice that your USB disk is not working with EFI mode. if you turn both of them ON (EFI, Compatible mode) and your bootable USB did not work with EFI mode then the system will try to boot it with the compatible mode instead. if it worked and booted to the installation setup, you can't tell which way it booted up, EFI or Compatible mode. so better turn the other guy before using.

comment Linux Won't install from LIveUsb
I think unetbootin is only for MBR systems. there is no option to switch between those two system types in it (in rufus you can switch the system type as "MBR PARTITION SCHEME FOR..." or "GPT PARTITION SCHEME FOR...") as I said before,the installation medium used for the EFI system and the installation medium used for the BIOS system are completely two different booting approaches to each system. EFI capable disk has additional folders to boot with efi firmware. that is why unetbootin did not work. learn more about UEFI here >> en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unified_Extensible_Firmware_Interface

comment Linux Won't install from LIveUsb
I'm happy it worked :)...yes you need to recreate the live USB even it worked in the Compatible mode (CSM). those two system types has two different ways of booting, so a EFI-capable USB disk won't boot with MBR mode (CSM/compatible mode - ON)

comment Ubuntu keeps putting itself in EFI?
try turning secure-boot ON. it may restore your windows boot loader and delete ubuntu entry

comment how to enable secure boot after the installation
there is no problem with efi-grub.... grub is installed as efi capable and system boots up with efi mode (CSM diasbled)...and I can use both kubuntu OSes and Windows 8.1 ...problem occurs when I trun on the secure boot option, I don't know where is the error...bios os the efi-grub...visual bios says signature error and it leads to windows straight without displaying the grub :(

comment how to enable secure boot after the installation
@bodhi.zazen thanks for your comment. yes secure boot and efi (or uefi) are two things (actually secure boot is a feature of efi which keeps windows secure) and I can also turn off secure boot and efi mode (secure boot depends on efi mode) in my bios. also it is possible to convert a regular linux installation to a efi capable installation :)

comment Full Transparent (glass type) menu for ubuntu 14.04
@Mateo thanks for the link :) I just want to know if it is possible to have blur in indicator-menus...transparency makes everything transparent (including menu text) but it is not what I expect...

@Naveen Yes!, That is what inspired me to create this concept design...as this one is much familiar with unity than the one in that link, also it is an old post, (2012!)
