http://askubuntu.com – Windows 8 is already jnstalled in UEFI mode on an Asus g55vw laptop. Sad but true, I need it - for now. Downloaded the last version of Ubuntu 12.10. Made a bootable CD from the iso-file. Reboot in EFI-mode. BIOS -> check, ubuntu boot screen -> check Both indicating the system is running both CD and HDD in EFI mode. Pressing both "install" and "try" options result in 20seconds of CD and HDD operating-sounds and LEDs blinking. Then silence and a blank screen. I would really be greatfull for some suggestions :) -benjamin (HowTos)
