I'm totally new to ubuntu and want to ask some things before diving into it: First off I have an Asrock z77 extreme 4 and 1 SSD with Windows 7 installed. On my second (empty) SSD I want to install ubuntu and I read that the setup is a bit different if you have UEFI firmware.
My mainboard is supposed to have UEFI and I naturally see the correspondant Interface when I go into the menu with 'del' on starting the PC. The problem is: When I search through
Code:Callback_BootEnvironmentDetect: Detected boot environment: BIOS
which confuses me. Normally UEFI would have to be specified at the end of the line and not BIOS. Can anyone explain that to me?
Can I use this tutorial now: http://www.linuxbsdos.com/2014/05/31/dual-boot-ubuntu-14-04-windows-7-on-a-pc-with-2-hdds-and-uefi-firmware/ or do I use the non-UEFI one? On the Boot menu of the UEFI interface i can specify PCI ROM priority (set to "Legacy" now, changeable to "EFI compatible ROM"). Does that cause this line in the logfile?
Furthermore I have read that a swap partition is not good for the SSD and I understand the reasoning. Since I have 8 gigs of RAM it might not be necessary to create one. Is it recommended to use a programm for dynamic allocation of the swap area like Dynamic Swap Space Manager?
