I didn't want to disable Intel(R) Smart response Technology as it does offer performance improvement. Changing the BIOS to get rid of the raid setup would have done just this. The bulk of my resolution came from this Super User answer here. how-do-i-install-windows-7-with-intel-rst-and-linux-to-dual-boot-on-a-dell-xps Mine differed in a few ways though - ...

The obvious answer is this is happening because grub can not find the windows boot loader. The less obvious answer is because the grub configuration file does not properly specify the root for the windows bootloader. The default operation seems to leave that line out. While it would be somewhat complicated to fix the default Windows Bootloader, the ...

If you can select the OS to boot, then it means you are going past a bootloader, so resuming from disk, not from RAM. The scenario you describe isn't possible with suspend to RAM.

Suspend may be to RAM and/or to disk. If you suspend and can boot another OS, than for sure you have suspended to disk. If you close the lid of a laptop and then on reopen can work almost immediately then you probably had a suspend to RAM, but this doesn't allow you to boot another OS (as the OS suspended this way immediately reactivates). The suspend to ...

This is usually fixed by running the scripts detect the installed operating systems and generate the boot loader's (grub2 in this case) configuration file. On CentOS 7, that should be grub2-mkconfig. Check that windows is detected. Run grub2-mkconfig but discard its output: $ sudo grub2-mkconfig > /dev/null Generating grub configuration file ... Found ...

In order to dual boot windows and linux you must install Windows first. Its something about Windows not wanting to play nice with other OS's, I don't exactly know why. Once you have Windows 7 installed try installing linux normally, but when you get to partitions you will want to designate a section of your hard drive to Linux only. There are plenty of ...

Use This tool Instead: LinuxLiveCreator. I've Found it to be more reliable. After doing so, reboot. If you still receive Windows7, you need to change the boot order in your BIOS to include USB devices.

I believe that Grub will automatically detect the second drive. Boot into Xubuntu and run sudo update-grub.

I've used Boot-repair to fix Windows-Linux: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair If you can't run from Ubuntu it's easy to make bootable disk, run the repair program on it.

The question here is where exactly you want to install linux mint. The only drive you can use to do that is your current C: drive. The problem is, that all of the space on it is currently being used by windows. What you need to do, is shrink that partition from within windows (No problem since currently 79% of it are not used) and once that space is freed ...

did you "reinstalled" refit manually? If you didn't, try running this on the OSX Terminal cd /efi/refit ./enable.sh When prompted for password, use the one Yosemite asks you while trying to install new software. After that, you should see the boot menu after you restart. When you choose to load Ubuntu from the boot menu, you may be greeted by the "grub ...

Yes it does, because rEFInd doesn't work because of corestorage. The entire disk, that means all partitions, is/are managed as a single volume, and rEFInd is lost in this "several partitions on multiple drives as a single logical volume". So you have to choose between corestorage performance, or rEFInd. Your options: install rEFInd into an another HFS ...
