I'm trying to install netrunner alongside windows 10 but I can't get it to recognize that windows is already there. All I get is a messge that it detects "no other operating system". Well, I really don't want to lose windows 10. I've tried changing the partitions as someone suggested but it had no effect.
alongside windows 10
If windows 10 was installed through UEFI, than the Netrunner live media will need to be booted through it as well to detect the partitions.

I'm sorry. I don't understand what UEFI means. I tried the same thing on pre-update windows 7 that I downloaded from a cd and got the same thing.
UEFI is the new "BIOS" thingy that uses a different way to boot up and register different partitions.
By default Microsoft Windows OEM PCs come with it enabled and most probably also with secure boot which is a TPM feature that Microsoft introduced to try control what software you are able to run on your computer. See http://blogs.msdn.com/b/b8/archive/2011/09/22/protecting-the-pre-os-environment-with-uefi.aspx for Infos straight from Microsoft about UEFI Secure Boot.
In general I would recommend to disable secure boot in the BIOS/UEFI Options. (see your handbook for your computer to know how to change it)
Then you have to bootup the Live USB Stick with the UEFI Boot option. I am not sure how your bios version distinguishes between "legacy" Bios boot and UEFI boot but you can see on the booted live system with the terminal command
If it responds with file not found this means you booted in NON-UEFI mode.
Hope that helps a little.

Thanks. I appreciate the info. How do I love microsoft. Let me count the ways. NOT! Guess I'll just stick with VM.
