I have (UEFI System) an ASUS K55A UEFI motherboard laptop that came factory with Windows 8. I would like to install backtrack linux and Windows 8, but before I go screwing up my laptop, I want to see if this would be at all possible. I would use a virtual machine, but I need Backtrack Linux on a physical machine for testing purposes as I am taking a course in computer forensics, and I want to test cracking my home wi-fi. My processor is an Intel Core i5 2.5 ghz with a 500 GB HDD and 8GB DDR3 RAM. Any insight on this would be appreciated. Thank You.
If I were you, I would purchase a new hard drive and then use it to install Linux on it. Then just swap out drives when you wish to use the other operating system.
defeats the purpose dont you think? would you carry around another drive , especially if you are using a tablet pc like the surface pro 2?
