comment How do I dual boot Ubuntu 14.04 with Windows 7?
There are plenty of tools to "burn" Windows 7 ISO to USB, just google. You can even copy all the files to USB after mounting ISO. Then write a boot sector to USB and you are done.

comment Need Help Fixing Grub after Installing Ubuntu 13.04 x64 Alongside Windows 8 on a Lenovo IdeaPad Y400 with UEFI
Ubuntu 13.04 installation does not alter UEFI boot order. If Windows is already present a new UEFI boot variable for Ubuntu is created and put after Windows boot entry in UEFI "BootOrder" so Windows remains default UEFI boot candidate ( 12.04 installation puts Ubuntu as first boot entry )

"First, activating "legacy support" was the wrong thing to do" - I have a DELL 15z and if legacy support is not activated Ubuntu's boot menu is not displayed properly. The main thing is always to boot the EFI way from external media on UEFI systems so the OS "knows" how to proceed with installation (Ubuntu and Windows).

Link has nothing to do with UEFI booting - cheap EasyBCD spamming ! The tutorial is for BIOS booting. (-1)
