Some new laptops comes along with Linpus Linux operating system. Though this Linux version of the operating system will not have features like Windows, people still choose to buy laptops with Linpus versions. The reason why, is the bottom line of the story, ‘to reduce price'. Laptops with Windows versions literally costs 4-5k extra bucks over the Linpus version of Linux. Buying a product with desired configuration and for lesser price than the actual is a smart move.
Pages: 1 This article is a step-by-step guide on how to dual-boot Windows 7 and Kali Linux on a single hard disk drive (HDD). Is what used to be, a distribution.
But remember, the smartness lasts till you don’t spend an extra rupee/dollar after that. If you are not familiar with Linux, you would find it difficult installing Windows operating system in Linpus environment and would regret buying the machine for a second. I’ve faced such problem once and found a simple solution after a lot googling. The Linpus machine would take you to some where after the boot that makes you feel casted away.
Don’t worry, the process will go smooth and will pick you up from the casted away island. Booting in Windows environment Before you boot your computer in Windows environment, make sure you had the bootable Windows 7 or 8 DVD or any other similar source for booting Windows. Get Windows 7 Professional Now In these times of Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 technical preview, Windows 7 professional stands out as the most used operating system after Windows XP from Microsoft. Restart your computer by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del in Linpus environment.
Keep pressing F2 or any other similar button that brings up BIOS options. Look for boot priority settings and change the first boot priority to ‘DVDRAM’ if you are using OS DVD or ‘Removable Media’ if you are using Bootable USB. Insert DVD into DVDRAM or plugin Bootable USB to the computer. Save settings and exit.
The computer will restart and while booting it will ask you to hit any button to boot computer with DVD you have inserted(In some laptops, the ‘press any key to boot into DVD’ text may not be shown. Instead, a blank underscore will be shown blinking for a couple of seconds.
In that case also, press a key within 2 or 3 seconds). Then your computer will be booted into Windows environment. Don’t rush to the drive options and format the drive or delete the partition. Note: Remember that you can boot into Windows environment but the actions on drive or drive partitions will not be considered. Formatting Linux Partitions with WindowsBooting into Windows environment alone won’t bring you full control over your computer. Remember that the hard disk would be formatted with Linux before Linpus installed in it. So to install Windows, we must re-format it in Windows environment.
Formatting options that are available while installing Windows 7 or 8 aren’t helpful at all. You must format the Linux partitioned HDD with Windows command prompt. To do so,.
Restart the computer into Windows environment again. Wait until the ‘Install Windows’ screen is shown. Press Shift+F10 to bring up the command prompt. Now type the following commands one after another,Type ‘diskpart’ and hit enter. A new DISKPART prompt will be opened. Type ‘help’ and hit enter.
All the commands for DISKPART will be shown. Of them, we’ll be using SELECT command only. Using of other command options are up to you. Type ‘select disk 0’ and hit enter.
(disk 0 means disk zero). Now type ‘clean’ and hit enter. This command will clean all the previous formats that are made using different other operating systems. Close the command prompt window and proceed to the windows installation. Now format, delete or create partitions as per your requirement. Please like and share this article if it helped you!

I have an Acer Aspire M laptop, which comes preinstalled with Windows 8, so it has this new UEFI stuff. To get the Ubuntu LiveDVD running, I had to disable the UEFI completely and switch to legacy BIOS mode. But after that I couldn't boot Win8 anymore.
In many questions here I read that ubuntu 12.04.2 works with EFI but not with Secure Boot. But since I can't disable just one, I'm pretty much in a dead end. Also it seems that UEFI boots faster than legacy BIOS, so it would be nice if I could keep all this for both Windows and Ubuntu. Dual Boot Windows 8 and Ubuntu 13.04 on Acer TravelMate I was at the same dead end: I could not disable secure boot in the UEFI-mode in the BIOS of an Acer Travelmate P253-E with pre-installed Windows 8. The Secure Boot option was just gray and could not be reached with up/down keys.
With secure boot enabled, the attempt to install Ubuntu 13.04 from LiveCD ended with the message: 'DVDRAM has been blocked by the current security policy'and I could not boot the LiveCD. I tried a lot (set supervisor password in BIOS.) but in the end I guess the Windows 8 factory reset did it (described here: ). I did the 'Clean drive fully' option, it took a whole night to run!
After that I could change the Security Boot to 'Disable' in the Boot Section of the UEFI-BIOS. I installed Ubuntu 13.04 64bit with a LiveCD and chose the windows boot partition 'fat32 EFI system partition boot' as 'device for boot loader installation'. After installation, the Notebook booted directly to Windows 8. No chance to boot Ubuntu. I booted Ubuntu 13.04 via my Ubuntu13.04 LiveCD and installed and run the Boot-Repair ('recommended repair') as described here: And this it is: Now booting the Notebook, gives me a screen on which I can choose to boot Ubuntu 13.04 or Win 8.
With Ubuntu as default system, of course!:) Hope I could help someone. It's usually possible to disable Secure Boot without disabling EFI support; however, the user interfaces in EFIs vary greatly from one system to another, so I can't provide step-by-step instructions for doing this. I recommend you peruse your firmware settings to find the relevant options and play with them. Also, it was my understanding that 12.04.2 did support Secure Boot.

12.10 definitely does, and I assume that the new 13.04 does. Thus, you should be able to get Ubuntu installed with Secure Boot active. Even if 12.04.2 doesn't actually include Secure Boot support, trying 13.04 might be worthwhile.
Admittedly it's not an LTS version, but given how new Secure Boot is and how quickly things are changing in this arena, giving up LTS may be the price you have to pay - at least, to do it relatively easily. If all else fails, you should be able to get it to work by creating your own Secure Boot medium. This is not an easy task, though. My covers the topic in moderate detail. In brief, you'd need to prepare a medium (a modified Ubuntu installer or a separate boot medium) that includes a pre-signed version of shim.efi or PreBootloader.efi and that launches a boot loader (ELILO, GRUB, or rEFInd) that in turn launches the Ubuntu installer's kernel and initrd file.
You'd probably need to enroll keys or hashes for the boot loader and perhaps the kernel and initrd file to get this all working, too. This is not a task for a newbie, though; to get this to work, you'll need to be comfortable with boot loader/manager configuration files, kernel options, and so on. It says on a few websites to delete efi folder and then the cms mode will work but you need to re-install from either flash drive or windows disk while windows is booting up press 0 key to go into recovery manager type these commands diskpart list disk select disk 0 clean exit exit This will wipe your hard drive clean no go back into the bios and you should see uefi and secure boot enabled, disable secure boot. Now select cms and it will ask you to boot from disk, follow the on screen instructions to install windows.
Setting the password in BIOS/uefi worked for me also. After I could disable secure boot. The instructions are here: Also I noticed that afterwards it would skip straight to windows. I didn't need to use boot repair though. Just go back into bios/uefi and reorder the boot sequence. Mine was set to windows first and then 'Ubuntu' next, right below it. I just reversed this order.
Finally on my Acer netbook I could not get to BIOS/uefi at all when starting up if I had shut down windows properly. The F2 button wouldn't work during start up unless I had manually shut down the computer by holding down the power key. Not sure why. Now everything is running smoothly and I have a dual boot Ubuntu windows 8 Acer netbook. Set the 'Supervisor Password' in the BIOS to remove the greying out (there is a total of five different kinds of password in some of the BIOSes):.
Hold down F2 during startup of the laptop to enter the BIOS. Select menu 'Security' using the arrow keys. Select 'Supervisor Password' using the arrow keys.
Press Enter to get the dialog for setting the password. Type in a password and Enter. Retype in a password and Enter. Remember the password somehow! You will be prompted for it the next time you try to enter the BIOS. Press Enter to dismiss the dialog. Select 'Boot' using the right arrow key.
'Enabled' for 'Secure Boot' is no longer greyed out (and can be changed to 'Disabled')!. Optional: Set the 'Supervisor Password' back to empty. Select menu 'Exit' and menu item 'Exit Saving Changes' using the arrow keys. Press Enter for 'Yes' in the prompt.
