Apple :: Dual Boot Ubuntu With MacBook

Apr 30, 2009

Im having problems trying to find a decent guide on how to do this,(Most of them are outdated and what not) but I want to have the ability to use Ubuntu and OSX.

I currently have Ubuntu in Virtual Box, but I would like for my whole system to be able to switch from OSX and Ubuntu and boot or w/e.

Also, I have Ubuntu saved on my external HD iso file. So will I need to actually burn it to disk?

I also read that you can use bootcamp to do this.

So whats the easiest way to do this without having to reinstall osx(if I really dont have to)

Acer :: Guide To Dual Booting Windows And Ubuntu

Mar 16, 2009

how to guide for dual tri or quad boot linux with xp vista or 7 or all 3

Ubuntu is available as a "live" CD, which means that you can use it directly from the CD without installing it. But running an operating system from a CD is slow, to see what Ubuntu can do running at full speed, you need to install it to your hard disk.

The ideal situation would be to install Ubuntu on it's own separate hard disk, but most people don't have two hard drives in their computer, and most people are not prepared to give up Windows. Therefore they have to install Ubuntu along-side Windows on the same hard disk in a dual-boot configuration.

Configuring a dual-boot system involves partitioning your hard disk to make space for Ubuntu. When your computer first starts, it reads information on the first sector of the hard drive which tells it where to find the "boot loader". The boot loader is a file with information about the installed operating systems and how to start them.

The boot loader for Windows is a file named "boot.ini". The boot loader for a Linux system (like Ubuntu) is GRUB (Grand Unified Boot Loader). When you install Ubuntu in a dual-boot system, it redirects the system to use GRUB. When you first start your system, GRUB presents a list of options, including starting Ubuntu or starting Windows. So you'll still be able to use your Windows operating system.

To install Ubuntu, start it with the live CD. To use the live CD, your computer's BIOS must be configured to boot from the CD drive. It's probably already configured that way, but if not, when your computer first starts watch for a message telling you which key to press to access the BIOS setup. Most computers use the F2, F1, Esc, or Del key.........

Dell :: Windows 7 Dual Boot

Mar 15, 2009

I'm running Vista 32 bit on my notebook and desktop and I have an xps 1640 on its way with Vista 64. I've always been very happy with Vista but I would like to try Windows 7..

I haven't set up a dual boot system since Windows 3.11, so I was wondering if the process is pretty straight-forward? When I start up the Windows 7 install dvd, will there be an option to setup dual boot?..

I'd like to try this on my xps 1530 first, but I want to make sure that I don't do something that would crater the Vista OS currently on it. Would I be better off waiting for my 1640 to arrive to play with Windows 7?.

Acer :: Dual Boot Vista And Windows 7

Apr 4, 2009

I have an Acer Aspire 8930G-7665, OEM Windows Vista x64. I want to set it up to dual boot between Vista and Windows 7, hence the thread title. However, I've had nothing but problems since the beginning.

Forgetting all the issues getting it partitioned, which I've done, I can't get the computer to boot off the DVD. This is strange because the same DVD worked fine on a Dell unit previously.

The first hurdle is that I can't get it to present me an option to boot from CD. The workaround is to change the boot order, which I've done. But now when it accesses the DVD drive to read the DVD there, the computer simply stops responding. There's a flashing cursor in the upper left corner of the screen.

HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion Dv9750ep And Windows 7 In Dual Boot

Jan 22, 2009

I own a HP Pavilion Laptop.

It says "HP Pavilion dv9000" on the screen frame, and says "HP Pavilion dv9700" and "dv9750ep" on the labels in the back. Guess it makes it a HP Pavilion dv9750ep?

It has 2 Hard Disks, each of 150GB; I believe it's 2 physical disks and not just partitions as in the device manager shows 2 ...

It came with Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit.

My issue is:

I'd like to try the beta of Windows 7, using the 2nd Hard Disk for that. I've been using it mainly for data backup, but as I have an external drive I guess I could make the 2nd dirsk free for trying Windows 7.

My reason for wanting to try Windows 7 is Microsoft Flight Simulator X. Some of my buddies tried it in Windows 7 and are reporting a noticeable performance increase.

When it comes to Laptops, and since this is my first one, I'm very reluctant to these moves - mainly because of the proprietary drivers... for instance, if I want to update my NVidia card drivers that must be made through HP and not through the regular channels - or so I think.


Would it be possible to install Windows 7 on the 2nd Hard Disk and make it a Dual Boot system?

Would I have problems with HP-specific drivers?

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: How To Dual Boot W540 With Windows 8.1 / 7

Oct 30, 2014

I got my W540 recently with windows 8.1 pro on it. but as all engineers worst nightmare windows 8 has hard time with engineering softwares (for my case TIA Portal for  PLC programming software which only support windows 7). so i need to have a windows 7. i prefer to keep my windows 8 and have dual boot system with windows 7 added. But i can't install windows 7. initially due to disk type (GPT), then i changed it to MBR without losing my files (which only was possible if i had deleted the recovery partition- now my recovery is on my flash drive). But there are already 4 partitions on the system (1 for C: drive and 3 for recovery and system files which came originally with the product) , how can i install a windows 7? i can't add another partition because that makes my disk a Dynamic disk. i really need windows 7 on my system ASAP.

HP/Compaq :: DV5T-1100 Won't Load Windows

Jan 13, 2010

Shut it off one day and it wont load windows the next day. I get to the HP logo on start up and then the screen goes blank. After about 5 mins, the HP logo come back up again indicating the system is stuck in a restart loop. I cant get it to enter safe mode. I have removed the battery and held down the power button for up to 60 secs. No go. By hitting the escape button while the HP logo comes up, i was able to get to a limited menu where you can check memory and supposedly the hard drive. Ran through all that. No go. Removed CMOS battery for 5 minutes. No go. About the only thing i have not done yet is reseat the memory. I'll try that soon. From experience, am i looking at possibly a dead HD or is this sounding like a mobo issue?

HP/Compaq :: Boot Ubuntu With QuickPlay Buttona Brief Guide

Jan 31, 2009

It has been known that HP has dropped the development of QuickPlay Direct due to compatibility issue.

For old model of Pavillion (before dv x5xx) that shipped with Vista as OS, HP did not include QuickPlay direct features anymore.

However, if you have managed to download QuickPlay Direct 2.3, you still can install QuickPlay Direct. In some models, a registry hacked was needed to install QuickPlay Windows and QuickPlay Direct. Some models of Presario that have QuickPlay button may also install QuickPlay.

For Pavillion models dv x5xx and above, installing QuickPlay Direct 2.3 would give you BSOD due to ICH8 sata driver.

I recently bought the last model of dv2700 series, dv2922tx, I prefer this old model instead of dv4 for some personal reasons. In this model, I did some try and error attempts to utilize QuickPlay button.............

HP Envy 17 3277nr OS/Software :: Unable To Boot And Install Windows 8.1 From DVD

May 14, 2014

I have an ENVY 17 (3277nr) with windows 8.1 in it but I'm unable to update it since several months ago so I decided to reinstall the OS so I went to the windows site that lets you download an ISO image of windows 8.1 to burn it into a disc (right now I dont have a 4gb usb at hand but is also possible).
I already burned the disc by right clicking the ISO and selecting 'burn disc image' and changed the boot options but every time I turn on my computer all I see is a single underscore and then the regular windows 8 boot screen.
I already visited wbesites in this regard and I've read things like the windows 8 UEFI thing (not on my laptop since I've upgraded from w7) and the security settings on the BIOS but none of them seem to fix the problem.
Additional details:
Oddly, when trying to open the burned dvd it only says 4.37gb out of 4.37gb, do you think my dvd drive might be damaged?

HP/Compaq :: Envy 15 - Should I Get Dual SSD's

Mar 15, 2010

I am literally sitting at the HP checkout page and before I hit the purchase button I wanted to get an opinion on the dual SSD's. Is it worth it get two SSD drives or should I get SSD + 5400RPM drive combo?

My purchase price after tax, shipping, and the $300 coupon is $2300. If I opt for the combo my price goes down about $300. However, if it makes sense to have two SSD's then I will purchase the current configuration.

HP/Compaq :: Envy 15 Dual Harddisk

Oct 26, 2009

I saw so many guys talking about this question, so I opened my Envy 15 1011TX (i7 820m, 500GB HD, 8GB RAM) for a answer.

Please check the attached photo, there's ONLY 1 2.5" drive bay and 2 HDD connector onboard, so it's possible to hold 2 1.8" drive and build a RAID.

Dell :: Dual Boot : XP And 7

Feb 5, 2009

I formatted my XPS M1530 using this guide (How to: Step-by-step guide for installing Windows XP on XPS M1530) and everything worked perfect.

But when I rebooted, I realised that the computer booted directly to XP and didn't let me choose between XP and 7. Normal, I thought, so I stuck in the W7 CD and selected the "repair" option. This did the trick very neatly, repairing the W7 install. The only problem was that now it will boot ONLY to W7 and I still have no selection screen for the OS.

Dell :: Trying To Dual-boot Win 7

Jan 14, 2009

I am trying to dual-boot Windows 7 on my XPS M1530 which is currently running Vista Ultimate - BUT I stumbled upon a problem. As I understand it, Vista will only allow you to have 4 partitions and magically I have 4 already.

I reformatted the laptop right after purchasing and no longer have the recovery drive. Here is what Vista says I have:

(1) EISA Configuration - 47mb
(2) C: (Vista) - 179gb
(3) Primary Partition - 4.25gb
(4) Primary Partition - 3gb
