Why virtualbox can overcome win8 UEFI issue to install Linux?
February 19, 2014 9:17 PM Subscribe
I tried to install linux on a win8 laptop and failed although I tried everything to disable UEFI and security boot options in Bios.
So I think there is no solution to install Linux on certain win8 Laptops.
But someone told me of course I can install Linux on any win8 laptops by using virtualbox.
So I'm wondering why can it be done? How exactly is virtualbox/virtual machine works for this issue? can anybody explain this to me in a easy to understand way? Thanks very much.
