I am having an issue with my Asus q500a in booting any version of ubuntu in UEFI mode Live CD where I get the Grub Menu and when i select try Ubuntu the cd makes a sound like its spinning up and then the laptop locks up. Same with all other options including install ubuntu. I have secure boot and fast boot disabled.
3rd generation I5 @ 2.50 GHz
6 Gigs of RAM
Intergrated Intel HD Graphics Card
Edit: I finally figured out how to boot the live cd in UEFI mode and with some minor tweaks to the install process am able to install and boot without any issues. It seems to be a problem with grub and my laptop which is solved by replacing grub with gummiboot. If anyone needs me to explain how i did it PM me.
