Ubuntu won't install on Windows 8 HD

view full story

http://askubuntu.com – So basically I installed Windows 8 and have not found it a decent OS, to my chagrin when I tried to install the latest Ubuntu via flash, the flash drive wouldn't load. It just went to the windows 8 startup page. I changed the boot settings and everything, any thoughts? NOTE: Flash drive created from uncompressing the iso onto my flash drive via 7zip. (HowTos)
