I used universal usb installer on a 8gb flash and booted ubuntu 14.1 but when I try to install ubuntu 14.1 inside windows 8.1 it just reboots and does absolutely nothing. My pc specs Intel core i5 4 gb ram How can I dual boot both of them?

  • Did You Try Ubuntu 14.04 ? Did You Use unetbootin ? Did You Try Ubuntu 14.1 WithOut installi – Eslam Hamad Dec 30 '14 at 8:23

The question is mostly vague, not giving us most of the details of what the exact problem is. Here are some suggestions:

  1. If you have a computer with Windows 8 pre-installed, chances are that you need to disable secure boot

  2. If you think you successfully installed it, but can't boot at all, try using Boot Repair

  • No it is not pre installed and no I couldn't install – Shady Taha Dec 30 '14 at 14:20
  • I booted ubuntu and selected install ubuntu then when i choose install ubuntu inside windows 8 the computer reboots into windows – Shady Taha Dec 30 '14 at 14:25
  • Do you meet with all of the system requirements? If not, I recommend that you go use a lighter Ubuntu distribution, such as Lubuntu. – JoeyChor Dec 30 '14 at 17:54
  • thx for ur help anyway – Shady Taha Dec 30 '14 at 18:55
