I've been trying to install Ubuntu on my Windows 8 laptop. I've partitioned the drive created an Ubuntu DVD and disabled secure boot options.
When I tried to load the DVD, the only option I got was to load it in Legacy Boot mode; there was no UEFI option. So I installed it in the Legacy Boot mode, and now I can't access Ubuntu. Windows seems to have been unaffected, but I can't use Ubuntu. Ubuntu was installed, I just can't load it in either Legacy or UEFI mode.
I think this is because I installed it in Legacy mode while Windows was in UEFI, but I don't know how to get around that and install it in UEFI.
Can someone help me resolve this without doing irreversible damage to my laptop?
