I have a laptop that came preinstalled with Windows 8.1. I want to replace it with Ubuntu. It doesn't have a DVD drive, so I installed Virtual CloneDrive and mounted the ISO for Ubuntu desktop.
I then restarted my computer, but I got an error from Windows Boot Manager where it looks like it is trying to boot Windows. When I click Enter to go into OS selection, I chose Ubuntu and then I came back to the Windows Boot Manager screen.
I changed the boot order and even tried to disable the Windows Boot Manager, but this made no difference.
Windows Boot Manager
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem: 1. Insert your Windows installation disc and restart your computer. 2. Choose your language settings, and then click "Next." 3. Click "repair your computer." If you don't have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.
