CAELinux2013 and UEFI was created by Robert Fryers
Hi,
I'm a new user and have very little knowledge of Linux except what I've learned in the last two days beating my head against a brick wall trying to get CAELinux to install correctly.

I have a UEFI Windows 7 install on a single physical ssd, which is confugred to boot as a UEFI drive. I don't want to modify or break this. I have a second ssd that I would like to install CAELinux2013 on for a dual boot arrangement.
I tried installing CAELinux2013 on the second ssd but it didn't recognise my Windows 7 install because the LiveUSB booted using BIOS rather than UEFI. So I did not have the option to install alongside Windows.
The Ubuntu documentation that I've looked at says that you must use a UEFI booted LiveUSB and install Ubuntu to a UEFI compatible drive for it to work.
The CAELinux2013 iso cannot be installed on a usb key formatted and partitioned for a uefi boot.
Is there any way to get a CAELinux2013 iso image that is suitable for a UEFI install?
Am I talking complete nonsense?

Please help!

Dear RFryers,

Your question makes sense. I know little about UEFI boot as of now.

1. Why don't you change option in BIOS setup to legacy instead of UEFI.

2. This may won't let Windows boot. (Please, make backup of all important data when making changes in BIOS or before installing any OS)

3. Reinstall Windows again and Linux by side.

Thank you.
