I purchased three windows 8.1 Nextbook tablets on Black Friday. I want to dual boot Ubuntu on my tablet but when I followed the steps from this link, Dual boot Windows 8.1 and Ubuntu

(Or at least the ones from the mentioned links in the article). For some reason my first tablet got bricked, any ideas? I have managed to dual boot Ubuntu on my Android using Linux Installer on the Play store, isn't there a similar app for windows tabs?

I found a long and dangerous (for my tab) way to install it although it is not dual booting. I installed Ubuntu 14.04 onto an ssd card and swapped out the prebuilt ssd card for the one with Ubuntu. For some reason the touch screen quit working with Ubuntu though.
