booting problems with Ubuntu 12.04
I have installed Ubuntu several times without issue. Just built a new computer with an Asus P8Z77M Pro mother board with EFI. I am trying to use EFI for booting, but my computer only boots every third or fourth time, usually locking up at a purple screen.
/EFI partition -- 258MB
/swap -- 20480MB
/(root) -- 25600MB
/home -- rest of disk
Here is a link to boot-repair output ... boot-repair claimed to be successful: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1354688
It's a little confusing because the boot does work on occasion. When it does not work, besides the purple screen lock, I also can get a notice to go in and change CSM settings under Boot Info in the BIOS. I've tried every CSM setting under the sun, but may have missed something.
If it is a valid option, I am happy to go "Legacy" and avoid EFI altogether ... this has been rather frustrating.
