I need help with booting Ubuntu on my windows 8 laptop. I got the iso image extracted onto a DVD. What next? I already tried Easy BCD 2.2 and it did not help! I also tried a you tube video, and that did not help either.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


Simply Burn/make Your Bootable CD/USB and then boot off of them :)

Then Click Install Ubuntu And FOllow Up Adn If it Says Install Windows Alongside Ubuntu Just Click On that

If the Option is not available click Something Else adn then shrink your Main Partition and instlal ubuntu there

grub Will configure itself And at each boot you will be able to chose what you want to boot

If this answered your question click answered :)
