/g/ why the FUCK is it so impossible to dual boot Linux with Windows 8+?
Well, I could do Ubuntu find, but Mint gave me problems, and I Manjaro won't do shit.
It's really fucking pissing me off.

>> No.47006956

I don't know man, maybe you suck at working with GRUB. Read up on the documentation a little bit. It's actually pretty straightforward.

>> No.47006965

Thats funny, it was extremely easy every time I've ever done it.

>> No.47006970

cause windows uefi is shit
you have to disable it

>> No.47006994

Perhaps it's because I'm booting through USB?

>> No.47007008

I do have it disabled, that's what allowed me to boot into Mint.
Manjaro, though

>> No.47007061

Live OS?

>> No.47007077

Yeah, I guess I shouldn't have said "dual boot" since I'm not actually installing it, just live booting it.

>> No.47007270

Live OS has its own set of quirks. what device are you booting on?

>> No.47007291

Mash f12, select USB
Why is that so hard?

>> No.47007318

It's a dell inspiron with preinstalled Windows 8.1
It isn't hard.
That's not the problem.

>> No.47007338

Wait...I'm using unetbootin for the live usb.
Apparently Manjaro doesn't support unetbootin?

>> No.47007340

Then what is the problem? I fail to see what could be difficult about booting a live usb

>> No.47007410

It won't boot.
I select to boot default Manjaro, and it gives me a bunch of errors and eventually stops.
I'm told it's UEFI, but I've disabled it.

>> No.47007429

Use USB writer to make the live USB, I always end up having problems with unetbootin

>> No.47007557

I tried that before, and I couldn't even prepare the USB for live booting.
"Error while locking the target volume"

>> No.47007585

Try a different usb

>> No.47007644

Was going to, but none are near me. Going to try reformatting it before searching for a new one.

>> No.47007686

I've dual-booted Windows 8 and Arch (then Ubuntu) for a while, no problems here
maybe you're just retarded

>> No.47007738

gimme a damn minute here, it may have been unetbootin's fault
I just read that Manjaro doesn't support it
You had to disable Secure Boot/UEFI, right?

>> No.47007771

1. Stop using Windows®
2. Stop using Linux®
3. Program your own OS from Machine Code.
You now have a free computer (assuming you built your computer from scratch).

>> No.47007867

Reformatting didn't work, tried different USB, still gave me the same error message.

>> No.47007908

Currently trying Universal USB Installer, seems to be working

>> No.47007923

OP is a fag.

>> No.47007978


>> No.47008959

Why not?
