By Dual Booting with Windows 10 or any distribution turn any computer into a powerful Chromebook Look-A-Like device alternative. Sync with your Google account and access Gmail, Google documents, Hangouts and YouTube and¬†other Google-powered apps that come built in directly, I’ve personally tested Cub Linux and the Cloud apps run much quicker than Windows and Linux.

Pros and Cons: Cub Linux Review

  • Normally Chromebooks comes installed out of the box in an SSD hard drive which is comparatively much faster than Normal Mechanical Spinning Hard Drive.
  • It offers Much More Read/Write Speeds like 10X faster than Normal HDD. Which in turn helps Chromebooks run faster and perform quickly
  • Whereas Cub Linux installation depends on which hard drive we dual boot it on. Whether we need large space or not to store data. If we install it on an SSD it can overthrow Chromebook in all ways due to its built-in App Features.
  • Apart from all of those Cub Linux comes with Installed media apps means it should not depend on Cloud for apps to entertain us. Entertainment requires lots of Storage Space which we can manage.

Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is important and all. However imagine if you added some great visuals or video clips to give your posts more,
“pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this site could
definitely be one of the greatest in its field.
Good blog!

Hey, thanks for the write-up. I have a question about dual/triple boot:

When I get into the ‘Installation Type’ menu in ‘Something Else’, it asks me to choose a partition to put the OS on. I’m running GPT on a Windows 10 laptop dual booting Ubuntu 14.04 with Grub2, and I’m using a storage drive between them and also have a Veracrypt drive. Needless to say, it’s a bit messy. Looks like this: https://goo.gl/photos/6nsPFJcCje8mupM86

I was trying to run Remix OS on another partition but had wifi issues, so I initially tried to just install it on that drive by highlighting this partition and picking it from the ‘Device for boot loader installation’ drop down menu. I got this error: “No root file system is defined, please correct this from the partitioning menu”. See here: https://goo.gl/photos/y8hagTxDZWJJdjzy9

After this, I reformatted that partition to ext4 and tried again, got the same thing. I thought it might help due to Cub’s linux base.

I was reading the wiki and saw this:

If you are dual booting, you may find that Cub Linux does not add your other operating systems to the bootloader. After installing, your computer will only boot into Cub Linux. In this case run this command in a terminal to recreate the bootloader:

sudo update-grub2

Does this mean you’re supposed to choose the windows boot manager [SDA1] and then set up grub again later? I set up grub a long time ago, so I forget, but will that set up the boot loader to allow me to choose between Win10, 14.04 and Cub?

Am I missing anything else?

    Hey Mike thanks for commenting. You want to triple boot right then follow this order –>

    Install windows then dual it with Cub Linux and then Triple boot it with Ubuntu. Ubuntu has Grub built it it’ll scan the present list of operating system and then lists in Grub menu.

I am having the error grub_efi_amd64 or something similar cannot install into /target/. What do I do to fix this?

    The issue is due to your previous Partitions present in the PC. Check AsKubuntu Q&A you’ll find clear solution for that error.
