I'm trying to successfully get my Surface Pro to dual boot Ubuntu, alongside windows 8.1, using a 128gb SD card
I came across a guide (Dual boot Surface Pro with Ubuntu?) and followed it, but there are a couple things I'm not clear about:
What is the purpose of the initial resizing of the windows partition. (Unsure whether the guide originally was intended to be used with just the internal HDD)
The guide tells you to disable secure boot. Is the intent that you will never enable secure boot again? I only ask because I thought Ubuntu 14.10 was supposed to be compatible with secure boot.
Whenever I boot the machine, it defaults to a command line interface for grub. I have to type exit, and then it sometimes goes into the grub GUI, but not always, it sometimes bypasses grub and boots up Windows.
Any assistance is greatly appreciated. I didn't know how to direct the question to the guy who posted the solution, and didn't have enough reputation points to comment on the original post.
