Re: Unable to boot Ubuntu 12.04.2 in EFI mode, black screen (dual boot with Windows 8
Thank you for helping me with your detailed explanations, it certainly is helping oldfred.
Let me try those boot parameter combinations you've posted and see what happens.
Just one more thing: what do you think about the BIOS graphics setup, which is currently:
Integrated Video: Disable
PCI Graphics Configuration:
Nvidia VGA controller: Primary VGA device
Intel VGA controller: Non-boot device
With these settings it appears that only nVidia card is enabled (which would explain the output from the lspci command I posted previously from within the live session). Is this OK or should I fiddle more with the settings, i.e.try to disable the nVidia card and only allow the Intel one?
Intel Core i7 860 2,8 GHz - 8 GB DDR3 - 1,5 TB SATA 3G - nVidia GeForce GTX 260 1,8 GB - Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin
