Yeah ~, I am able to directly boot Ubuntu ISO image from the hard drives again, with a simpler solution. So no CD/DVD burning, and no slow CD/DVD speed suffering any more. Here is how.
This is about making it possible to dual boot Windows 8 UEFI with Ubuntu. There are lots of such blogs/posts on the Internet already, so why another one? The reason is mainly two folds:
I kind of like to know all the “dangers” before jumping into the water. So I “looked”, before I leaped. Now I’d like to share out what I’ve “looked” so far, so as to make the next person’s life a bit easier, if s/he wants to dual boot Windows 8 UEFI with Ubuntu as well.
My findings are posted at http://goo.gl/5dR4Ty, or https://docs.google.com/document/d/1L0obnZkzX7aFyWqmx6zS1CrXEH_X9rRJUnBYeWWjJgU/edit#heading=h.hjmzej1mnr0j, if you don’t want to click on shortened urls.
I have been able to boot ISO directly from the hard drives instead of from slow CD/DVD before; I was able to install any Linux without the need to burn any CD/DVD, onto either HD or USB before. But recently when I was dealing with the casper Ubuntu boot from Ubuntu 13.10, I found my old method doesn’t work any more and need to find a solution. However all recent articles I found from the Internet recommend GUI tools. So, let me write one for the DIY people who like simple commands more than the fancy GUI tools.
