Dual Boot Windows 8 and Ubuntu 12.04

May 4Hits:1

I want to dual boot Ubuntu with Windows 8. Both are installed in my Dell laptop but the bios is not configured properly. I have to press F11 every time I need to use Ubuntu instead of Windows 8. I tried to use Boot Repair to repair it but was unsuccessful.

Here the the output from my boot repair : http://paste.ubuntu.com/7390841/

Also, the Boot Repair said that :

The boot files of [The OS now in use - Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS] are far from the start of the disk. Your BIOS may not detect them. You may want to retry after creating a /boot partition (EXT4, >200MB, start of the disk). This can be performed via tools such as gParted. Then select this partition via the [Separate /boot partition:] option of [Boot Repair]. (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootPartition) 

What should I do in this situation?


  1. Enter the UEFI setup (usually F1,Delete,F12, etc.)
  2. Go to the Boot tab
  3. Move "Ubuntu" up to the top of the list
  4. Reboot
