I am thinking of installing linux mint debian version on my pre-installed windows 8 laptop, but unable to figure out how to do so, is there any way I can install debian version of Linux mint on my windows 8. Also last time when I tried to install linux mint 14 (XFCE) it installed successfully but when I used (boot-repair) it messed up with my sda because I wanted to load linux mint 14 through windows 8 and not windows 8 through Linux mint. Also I wanted that both OS should load under UEFI so that I don't have to switch every time between "Legacy mode and UEFI mode". I have heard about rEFind but never used it can anyone tell me about how to use that to solve my problem or any other solution for this because I searched a lot on the web but unable to firgure out the solution as they are all for (non-preinstalled windows .
Your help is highly appreciated.
