I am newbie to Ubuntu but have an average knowledge of PC's and figured I'd be able to start in on it without many problems.
The trouble I'm running into seems to have to do with UEFI boot mode. With boot mode set to Legacy I am able to boot from USB or CD and install Ubuntu 12.10 64bit but I can no longer access windows. With UEFI on I get the boot screen and I get the options to try, install, OEM install or check disc. But no matter what option I choose the screen goes blank and nothing happens. I can press e or c for edit or command line and I have tried nomodeset and xforcevesa as suggested in other posts.
My hardware is a new MSI GE60 Laptop with a Crucial SSD and Nvidia GTX660 graphics.
Please let me know if there is any other information that is needed, you know the solution or if there is already a thread with a solution that I have missed.
