I 've recently bought a laptop with windows 8 and can't stand it. Though I need to keep it for some software I use at work..
I was advised to install ubuntu and have it set as dual boot. One completely wasted weekend later and I now cant use windows 8 or ubuntu.
Ubuntu worked fine after the install, (not done in legacy mode) but the boot files for windows were gone. After doing boot-repair and recommended, I got an error saying grub could not be installed. Now linux will not boot either without the cd.
After loads and loads of google searches everybody's answer is different and conflicting with the last..
This is really frustrating now, I'm a linux virgin and don't have any more time to waste on this. Can someone with more experience please advise how to install grub whilst booting from the livedisk
