I have just bought an Acer Aspire V5-122P with Window 8 loaded as a default. I personally not a big fan of Window but it comes with the laptop. So i thought i can install Ubuntu on top of Window 8 so that i can dual boot my laptop and that's what i have done for my previous laptop, which has been running more than 6 years until recently broken down. I have questions as follow:
i. Is there an issue with Window 8 and Unifi? it seems that when my laptop is connected to the Unifi via the wireless router, the connection will not be stable and tend to get disconnected on and off. My wife's Sony laptop with Window 8 encountered the same issue until Sony send a guide to fix the bug. Is there a bug to be fixed on Window 8? I am currently using teetering on my mobile and it seems to work fine but not at the speed i would expect from Unifi.
ii. How to dual boot this laptop? I have read some guides posted by some people on some othe forum. They mentioned about the the new laptop with new bios that i have to change it to "legacy". Since there's no DVD Rom comes with my laptop, i can only boot it from USB. However, once i have changed it to "legacy" the start up can never seem to boot it on the USB besides i have made a bootable Ubuntu USB. Can someone please guide me how to install Ubuntu on this laptop?
