    If you have not downloaded ISO. For almost all computers now the 64 bit version is better..

    Also instructions for DVD or USB
    http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download
    Write image or burn image not copy ISO as one large file to CD.

    You should be able to directly go into UEFI/BIOS or use a one time boot key (f12 on my system but varies) and choose the flash drive to boot.
    Flash drive has to be correctly configured as a bootable device, not just a copy of ISO.
    With UEFI you should get two flash drive choices, one UEFI and the other BIOS/CSM/Legacy or something.

    UEFI/BIOS Boot keys - about halfway down on this Microsoft page

    I know I usually use netbootin to do it. So hold shift when hitting restart, go into UEFI settings, and find a boot menu?

    I attached my BIOS screen shots and a couple from users with UEFI, but I do not think they are the screens you may see.

    Ok so heres what I have configured:

    Fast BIOS off
    Fast Boot Off
    Secure boot Off

    Now I see the flash drive in the boot menu, what do I do? Put it first? Select to boot from it? Or what?

    This is what I get when I did those things. It will not boot from my USB though, keeps going into win8.

    Better if you shrink photos and attach not insert.

    I assume Staples is the label on your Flash drive. So can you not boot from it.

    Perhaps your is one of those that will only boot from a flash drive with CSM or BIOS mode?

    No I can not boot from the flash drive. And yes staples is the name.

    I tried it in CSM and UEFI mode, and got a screen that said something about Linux not booting

    Ok update: It says this when I choose CSM Mode only: (see pic)



    When I choose CSM and UEFI, it boots Win8.
