I've just gotten my shiny new XPS 13 and I want to dual boot Win 8 with 12.10. It's being rather a nightmare however.
Windows is booting from UEFI so I want to install Ubuntu as UEFI as well and have been looking at many threads on issues around this.
The most relevant seems to be this one:
Where someone else is (like me) having problems trying to boot from a USB disk at all (without enabling legacy boot and defeating the purpose).
I've added a UEFI boot entry as the other post suggests, pointing at /efi/boot/bootx64.efi on the usb disk however selecting it from the boot menu I still end up in windows, every time.
Smart connect and fast boot are disabled and I've tried variations of the boot entry for both USB ports.
If anyone has any advice it would be hugely appreciated.
