[ubuntu] Installing on ASUS laptop

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello, everyone! I'm new to Ubuntu and I love it so far. I installed it on a 2005 Gateway laptop just to see if I would like it. I'm hooked, but I've ran into a problem. I have a new ASUS laptop that came pre-installed with Windows 8. I have tried all kinds of tricks to get Ubuntu installed and nothing has worked. I turned off secure boot, used Wubi, tried to get Windows to boot from my Ubuntu CD...nothing works. I want to get Windows 8 off of my laptop, so if anyone could help me, I would greatly appreciate it! (Hardware)
