I'm relatively new to Ubuntu and I recently got my first UEFI based laptop and I wanted to install Ubuntu on it alongside Windows 8. I created a live USB using Unetbootin and when I boot into the USB drive, a GRUB menu comes up. When I press Try Ubuntu or install Ubuntu, my screen either goes black or turns off entirely. I tried using the nomodeset option but that doesn't work. One time a sort of terminal window appeared but I had no idea what to do. I tried disabling secure boot but doesn't seem to help. I also tried using a different USB drive and also tried creating a live USB using Universal USB installer. I also tried Ubuntu 13.04. That doesn't work either.

I'm sorry if similar questions have been asked in the forum but I haven't been able to solve my problem
