This posting is a summary of how I got two systems to dual boot windows 8 and Ubuntu 14.04. Note that this was done on systems that didn't boot legacy, and had secure boot enabled.

The inaugural Sierra Vista Ubuntu Hour was held from 1730-1830 on 24 July 2014 at the Sierra Vista Public Library foyer. There were four Arizona Loco team members in attendance, three of which drove from the Phoenix area to ensure the success of this inaugural event. Two people stopped by and expressed an interest in having Ubuntu installed on their computer. I will accomodate them this next week. A good time was had by all present before, during, and after the Ubuntu Hour.
One of my recent projects was built around an Intel Atom system. One of its functions was to be a wireless access point. The chip that was in use was an Ralink 8192, hooked up through a USB port. A lot of clients (Windows, Android, iPhone) either dropped the connection frequently, or wouldn't connect at all.
This block describes a remedy.
I recently bought a new used Lenovo V570 laptop and wanted to dual boot it with windows 7 and Ubuntu 14.05. I found the drive had been erased with the exception of a recovery partition, but I was unable to access it.
I tried using the original format which was msdos and installed a fresh Windows 7. Unfortunately that failed. The Windows disk required GPT.
