I have been reading/researching for hours now on how to partition for a UEFI enabled, secure boot windows 8 system. The language used is a bit above my head though and some steps seem to be skipped for the non ubuntu endowed minds.
So very simply, I am starting right at the partition option in the installer, where I click "something else" instead of erasing the whole disk (because I want to keep windows 8 as well). Now I have read that you can only have one UEFI partition. Great. Sounds good. Now do I also need a partition for installing linux with the ext3/4, or do I do as one guide said and format it in fat32?
I am lost at this point. Then it goes on talking about boot flagging and how only the UEFI partition needs to be
boot flagged. So here is where my dummy-ness kicks in and I am lost. I am looking for very specific instructions on how not to totally screw up the booting and install a dual-boot ubuntu/windows 8 system.
