I am having trouble with installing Mint alongside Windows 8. I have disabled secure boot, and enabled legacy mode. However when I install Mint my windows 8 OS won't boot anymore saying "files are missing". Are there any detailed walkthroughs on how to do this successfully? I am getting overly frustrated.
"If you've installed Linux in BIOS mode, the trick will be to get it booting in EFI mode, since switching between BIOS-mode and EFI-mode boots is awkward on most computers. There are a number of ways to do this. The easiest are to use Ubuntu's "Boot Repair" tool or to install rEFInd from Mint. In either case, you may need to fiddle with your firmware settings to get the computer to boot in EFI mode rather than in BIOS mode."
