    Dual Boot Win8 and Linux

    I saw this article and know the topic comes up all the time so thought might help some to post the link.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    I thought this bit from the article was illustrative...

    First, though, I will repeat something I have said many times before. Every UEFI firmware implementation is different - and not just a little bit different, either.

    Some work really well with Linux installations, dual-booting with no problem right from the start. Others are difficult, unpredictable and downright maddening in their inconsitency, and seem to go out of their way to prevent Linux booting. So if you want to dual-boot Linux and Windows, try to find a description written by someone with the same system you are using, or at least a system from the same manufacturer.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
