Hello. I first tried to install ubuntu 12.10 (64-bit) in EFI mode. But I couldn't (the installer or try mode never loaded), so I installed it in legacy mode and it worked fine.
I have windows 8 installed in EFI mode and the recommendation was to change ubuntu to EFI mode as well (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI).
I did so using the Boot-Repair tool.
After changing to EFI boot mode. I could see listed ubuntu and windows on the grub menu. Windows works just fine but ubuntu
gets stuck after displaying the line:
Loading intial ramdisk...
The url that Boot-Repair gave me is: http://paste.ubuntu.com/5679516/
As many of these EFI problems depend on the computer model. I must say that my computer is a MSI-G70.
I have read another forums, but no one said that they were first able to boot in legacy mode and after the change to EFI mode they couldn't.
They list problems like "when I have: [ usb devices plugged in / the ethernet card enabled ] it gets stuck".
I really hope I'm not posting a repeated question. And I will greatly appreciate any help.
