    Question Alenware X51 Bios screen boot only.

    Hey everyone I just upgraded my Alienware X51 to Ubuntu 13.04 and now after the upgrade completed I restarted and now every time it boots up it only goes to the BIOS screen. I ran the Alienware hardware test and everything tested fine but I have no clue if it has to do with the UEFI boot. Did I fry my Hard drive? Or does it sound like another problem?

    Update: I ran alienware's PSA all my hardware is fine but I must have done something wrong with the installation. I have the I7 and was running the 64bit version of 12.04 . That was before they started shipping 12.04 and higher with the UEFI files for the installation . Should I try the 32bit version? Before with UEFI situation all I needed to do was do nomodeset and no splash and it worked. But this seems to be a different problem.
