[Discuss] Disabling UEFI and dual booting Linux and Windows


Dual-boot Windows 8 and Ubuntu 12.10 on UEFI hardware

  So, I got a friend to lend me his copy of Windows 8 Pro. Armed with
  it, and an installation image of Ubuntu 12.10 Desktop, I set out to
  see if dual-booting the latest offerings from Microsoft and Mark
  Shuttleworth's outfit will pose any major obstacles on a motherboard
  with UEFI firmware.

I don't think this really answers the question raised in this thread,
because I believe some people were asserting that it mattered whether
Windows was pre-installed on the machine. In the article above it sounds
like the author is installing both OSs.
