  1. [ubuntu] Re: Can't start Ubuntu Live CD for 13.04 installation on Win8 UEFI system

    Truth be told, I just bricked everything -- for a second time -- screwing with boot-repair, and had to re-set-up to factory config. I'm in a bind -- I'm a scientist who's never written anything...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Can't start Ubuntu Live CD for 13.04 installation on Win8 UEFI system

    Well, it's not NOMODESET -- makes no difference on the booting behavior. I'm still limited: I can only boot with legacy BIOS boot enabled (an, perforce, Secure boot disabled).
  3. Re: Unable to boot after 12.10 installation [Win8 machine - no bootable image found]

    Oops -- sorry, posted to wrong thread.
  4. [ubuntu] Re: Can't start Ubuntu Live CD for 13.04 installation on Win8 UEFI system

    Oldfred -- wow, that's a lot to research! Will do, and will post here when it's fixed; I feel close to it, but I'm neglecting my kids a bit. Man, the amount of back-and-forth collected in these...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Can't start Ubuntu Live CD for 13.04 installation on Win8 UEFI system

    OK, I'm 90% there. I can boot Ubuntu or Windows. Windows is never an issue. Ubuntu will _only_ startup if legacy booting is enabled and secure boot disabled. So much for UEFI or secure booting...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: Can't start Ubuntu Live CD for 13.04 installation on Win8 UEFI system

    Perhaps, oldfred, but I am confused -- Ubuntu runs just fine under the live DVD (UEFI boot with legacy boot enabled, again --?) after all, there's no missing video driver there. The video card is a...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: Can't start Ubuntu Live CD for 13.04 installation on Win8 UEFI system

    Wow, that's entertaining. Did boot-repair, got http://paste.ubuntu.com/5771586.

    Now the GRUB menu comes up and if I boot into Ubuntu, it hangs for all time. But if I boot into WIndows, all is...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: Can't start Ubuntu Live CD for 13.04 installation on Win8 UEFI system

    OK, here's something I don't understand at all, maybe it'll help jgriendl too, but there's clearly Deep Bios Stuff going on here that I don't get.

    So again, the issue has been, if I boot up from...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: Can't start Ubuntu Live CD for 13.04 installation on Win8 UEFI system

    I'm trying that now, oldfred, will post on the results....
  10. [ubuntu] Re: Can't start Ubuntu Live CD for 13.04 installation on Win8 UEFI system

    That's a luxury many of us don't have! At any given time my family has a simgle computer; I prefer to do everything on Ubuntu and so do my wife and kids. But our most recent machine is ten years...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: Can't start Ubuntu Live CD for 13.04 installation on Win8 UEFI system

    Thanks, oldfred -- it's taken me a while to work through all those suggestions, but still no dice.

    On the other hand --MAN, there's a lot of Windoiws 8 dual-boot install threads running around...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: Can't start Ubuntu Live CD for 13.04 installation on Win8 UEFI system

    Thanks for the welome! And for the thoughts.

    What I've got on my DVD (sorry, "CD" was laziness on my part, it's a DVD) is in fact 64-bit Ubuntu 13.04; ain't no 32-bit involved here. So that's not...
  13. [ubuntu] Can't start Ubuntu Live CD for 13.04 installation on Win8 UEFI system

    Folks, I feel like a lot of variants of this question have been asked but that the specific cases are pretty divergent, and nothing I've found on these threads has solved my issues -- so here goes.
