Satellite C850 - 19(d) - I want to do a dual boot with Linux and Win 8

Last week I had a Satellite C85O - PSCBWE-03200WGR 19(d)

Yesterday, I try to make a dual boot with Ubuntu.

I do not have a start to boot from USB, or iso CD (same choices as for the Toshiba application), and I did one on the bios:
-Disable secure boot
-Change UEFI CSM support
-Save

On reboot, I get not Toshiba logo, but a black screen with:

«This product is covered by one or more of the following patents:...» (list of patents...)

Realtek...

PXE - E61: Media test faliure check cable
PXE - MOF: Exit PXE ROM
"No boot device - insert boot and press a key.

I can't open the Bios again at F2.

Which I recover the system?

Hello

The unit has been pre-installed with Win 8 64 bit right?

Change BIOS setting of UEFI to CSM and disabling secure boot prevent Notepad to start 8 to win!

That's why the device cannot find the boot device and passes to the last option: LAN.
But given that the laptop can not find bootable system via LAN, the error PXE - E61: Media test faliure check cable appears.

If you want to use a dual boot, you will need to boot into Win 8
Win 8 you must create a partition for installing Linux. This can be down in Win 8 disk management. It must reduce a last partition and have to create new free space available.

Now to start installing Linux you need support... you can burn the iso on DVD or a USB bootable Linux. There are a lot of details on the internet how to create these media.
Once you have created the bootable USB key, restart your PC with USB connected.
Press F12 for the boot menu. Now you should see the key USB (if it is bootable!) choose USB and you should be able to install Linux (Ubuntu is great!)

Here's a nice page that would provide the statement all step by step!

  • HP Pavilion dv6-1140ea. want to make the dual boot for Linux also

    Hello

    I just bought one of these laptops. Is really very nice. I am a software developer and want to ensure that the software I write also works under Linux.

    For this reason, I want to make my system dual boot. That means I'll need to wipe the hard drive and install from scratch.

    I am really disappointed that the laptop came not with Vista disk (s), and that the HP software I want here (assistant wireless and all that is installed to make Vista works with the card reader, lightscribe DVD, etc.) is not simply written on a separate disc.

    So, can someone please tell me the best course of action once the hard drive is to get the Windows partition as it is now with Vista and HP utilities on? I want to get free or very low cost disks that I already paid for this software.

    I really hope that it is not my option to create recovery discs. Therefore, your time! I tried their creation and halfway through the process of verification of DVD 1 drive (about an hour in the process), he said verification had not.

    I'm looking for a simple, fast and cheap way to do.

    Thank you

    PUK.

    You are welcome.

    An alternative or a safety net in case where everything goes as planned. You have a C:\SwSetup folder that contains all your driver/app installation programs. Copy on dvd before making any changes. Use your Dell drive to install Vista, using the license key of the laptop on background to activate. Use your dvd with applications/drivers to complete.

    Then boot from the XP CD and install it. After that, you must restore the bootloader of Windows Vista using EasyBCD, for example.

  • Satellite U940 PSU6VA - Dual boot with Ubuntu based distributions

    _ * My specifications: * _
    * Model: * Toshiba Ultrabook (Satellite PSU6VA - 00S 002 U940)
    * Operating system: * Windows 8.1 x 64 (upgrade of Windows 8 x 64)

    I would like to set up my computer to dual boot with Windows 8.1 (x 64) and Zorin OS 9.1 (64-bit).

    ZORIN OS is a derivative of Ubuntu which maintains a binary compatibility with Ubuntu i.e. Ubuntu and Zorin use the same drivers and can run the same applications. John Damascene is more or less just Ubuntu with a different desktop environment and some additional preinstalled applications.

    So far, I know that I need to disable the QuickStart Windows 8.1. What I have to do something else (for example disable Secure Boot, CSM, etc.)?

    In addition, my Ultrabook comes with 2 hard drives: 500 GB HARD drive and a 30 GB SSD. Windows uses the HARD disk for storage and for implementing SSD caching, through technology Intel Rapid Storage Technology. Is it possible to set up John of Damascus to do so (preferably without disabling caching on Windows)?

    NOTE: I prefer to do things using graphical interfaces, rather than the CLI. I don't mind given CLI instructions; also just showed me the GUI equivalents if possible. I use the CLI if there is no alternative.

    Hello

    See my responses / comments among your questions (I took part of your message and inserted here):

    So far, I know that I need to disable the QuickStart Windows 8.1. What I have to do something else (for example disable Secure Boot, CSM, etc.)?

    Answer: If you want to dual-boot, do NOT select WSC as preventing Windows to start.
    You shouldn't have to disable startup secure either, but I can't promise that. I think that Ubuntu 14 has support for secure boot.

    In addition, my Ultrabook comes with 2 hard drives: 500 GB HARD drive and a 30 GB SSD. Windows uses the HARD disk for storage and for implementing SSD caching, through technology Intel Rapid Storage Technology. Is it possible to set up John of Damascus to do so (preferably without disabling caching on Windows)?

    Answer: No, I don't think that there is a way to use the SSD in Zorin without making it unusable for Windows.
    Suggestion - let it be.

  • How to create a dual boot with Vista installed on my Satellite U400?

    Hello

    I just bought a U400 - 17 H with vista installed on the HARD drive. I would like to create a dual boot with XP Pro.

    I have only a drive HARD aleady with 2 partitions (1 for vista) + 1 for data.
    I want to cut the partition vista in two 2 pieces to install XP Pro.
    At the end I'll have 3 partitions 1 vista (65 MB), 1 xp (65 MB) and 1 data (125 MB).

    Is it easily to create a new partition ok (I guess only on vista)
    but is there a program dedicated to install another OS and create a dual boot.

    Please help me because I like many things the other way around. I'm sure it's possible, but what are the right process to have at the end of two BONES and the choice at the start of the laptop

    Thank you
    Gerard

    Hello!

    Create a new partition for Windows XP and install it. There is no problem.

    After that, you need to restore the Windows Vista boot loader. You can do this with EasyBCD. Install and start the program.
    Go to the tab "Add/Remove entries". You will see that there is only one option available in the bootloader of Vista at the moment. In the "Add an entry" section, replace the drive in the menu drop-down of C:\ E:\. Change Type "Windows NT / 2 k/XP / 2 k 3" and the name of "Microsoft Windows XP". Then click on 'Add an entry' and 'save '.
    Then go to the "Manage Bootloader" tab make sure "Reinstall the Vista Bootloader" is selected, then click on "write the MBR.

    Now you can restart the laptop and you should have a full system dual boot to work.

    Good bye

    Short answer: you can't do that. Maybe if you have two hard disks (I tried didn't) but as much as I know your SP L40 has only one.
    Ask this smart guy, how to do this. Maybe it's a useful tip.

    Hello.

    XP and Seven is installed in dual-boot on my laptop and I use EasyBCD to choose which system I want to start.

    To start XP, I need to enable "Compatibility" (Controller SATA in BIOS mode) and seven is "AHCI" must be activated.

    Is there a way for my two OS was started without making changes in the bios?
    Y at - it an update to correct this problem (or alternative)?

    Thank you in advance.
    Marc

    Yes you can do it but I'm afraid, you must reinstall Windows XP Home edition m.
    Why? Because before beginning to install Windows XP Home edition, you must change it to AHCI mode, launch the installation of Windows XP Home edition and before you start you need to load the SATA driver (via F6 I think).

    Long time ago, we have discussed a lot about this on this forum then use the advanced search anc check options other postings on this subject.

  • Satellite L30-105 Dual Boot with XP Possible

    Hello

    I have a Satellite L30-105, and while I do not particularly like Vista, I need to keep it for various reasons. However, I must also now use the laptop with a piece of hardware (a North G2 synthesizer) who does no Vista drivers.

    So I think the best thing I can do is to create a dual boot system, but a lot of articles on the net say you need from your CD original Vista, and of course the laptop does not come with one.

    So what I want to do possible? And there at - it a guide for how to do this? I have an XP license and the CD that I can use for this.

    Hello

    I installed the XP and Vista on my laptop.
    It was a little difficult because the XP installation crushed the Vista MBR (master boot record) and the Boot Manager.
    But I solved it by using the original CD of Vista. I had to borrow from a friend.

    I booted from CD of Vista and it repaired the Vista Boot Manager.
    Then I installed the tool called EasyBCD and set up the Vistas Boot Manager.

    That helped get XP and Vista on two different partitions.
